Few destinations in Mexico dazzle visitors quite like Cancun, a modern resort town filled with glitzy hotels sitting on picturesque and well-developed Caribbean beaches.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like La Isla Shopping Village and Playa Delfines. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cancun: Cobá Zona Arqueológica Cobá (in Coba), Akumal Beach (in Akumal) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Playa del Carmen). Next up on the itinerary: get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Interactive Aquarium, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.
