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 La Isla Shopping Village and Zipline. Zona Arqueologica El Rey and Iglesia Del Sagrado Corazon will appeal to history buffs. Explore Cancun's surroundings by going to Isla Mujeres (Punta Sur & Playa Norte). The adventure continues: get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, see the interesting displays at Mayan Museum of Cancun, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Interactive Aquarium, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Cancun trip simple and quick.
