Cancun

— 17 nights
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 get in some beach time at Akumal Beach and Playa Norte. You'll explore and learn at Mayan Museum of Cancun and Casa de los Venados. Change things up with these side-trips from Cancun: Playa del Carmen (Vidrio Soplado Mexicano, Skydiving, &more), Cobá Zona Arqueológica Cobá (in Coba) and Valladolid (Iglesia De San Servacio, Museo de San Roque, &more). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Delfines, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and explore the ancient world of Punta Sur.
