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.
Escape the urban bustle at Scuba & Snorkeling and Akumal Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Playa del Carmen (Zipline & Dolphin Discovery). There's much more to do: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, make a trip to Avenida Kukulkan, tour the pleasant surroundings at Playa Delfines, and contemplate the long history of El Rey Ruins (Zona Arqueologica El Rey).

To find ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Cancun trip itinerary planner.
