Cancun

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cancun: Isla Mujeres (Playa Norte, Guadalupe Chapel, & more), Akumal Beach (in Akumal) and Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling, Quinta Avenida, & more). There's much more to do: browse the different shops at La Isla Shopping Village, hunt for treasures at Mercado 28, go for a walk through Av Kukulkan, and fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.

To see photos, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, read Cancun trip planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. In May in Cancun, expect temperatures between 86°F during the day and 75°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
