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.
Escape the urban bustle at Akumal Beach and La Isla Shopping Village. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Playa Norte and Playa Tortugas. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cancun: Playa del Carmen (Fernando Rodriguez, Zipline, &more). Next up on the itinerary: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, don't miss a visit to El Parque de las Palapas, tee off at Moon Palace Golf Course, and stroll through Playa Delfines.
