Cancun

(3.8/5 based on 60,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: nightlife, adventure, water activities
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. While for most visitors a Cancun vacation means lazing on the white sand with a cold cocktail in hand, the town also serves as an ideal base for touring the nearby islands. Beaches may be the most popular places to visit in Cancun, but if you take the time to venture beyond the water you can discover a cosmopolitan urban center boasting a lively party scene and sophisticated restaurant culture. A short day trip away from Cancun you'll also find pristine swathes of jungle, botanical gardens, national parks, and world-class dive sites. Use our Mexico vacation builder to arrange your visit to Cancun and other destinations in Mexico.
