Cancun, Mexico

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Scuba & Snorkeling (in Playa del Carmen) and Akumal Beach (in Akumal). There's lots more to do: browse the different shops at La Isla Shopping Village, stroll through Playa Delfines, observe the fascinating underwater world at Interactive Aquarium, and explore the activities along Cenote Jardin del Eden.

For ratings, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our Cancun attractions planning app.

Getting from Chicago to Cancun by flight takes about 7 hours. Other options: do a combination of train and flight; or drive. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Chicago to Cancun due to the time zone difference. Plan for warmer temperatures traveling from Chicago in December, with highs in Cancun at 82°F and lows at 70°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 9th (Wed) to allow time for travel back home.
