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.
Visit Nuestra Senora del Carmen Catholic Church and Parroquia de Cristo Resucitado for their historical value. Head to La Isla Shopping Village and Vidrio Soplado Mexicanofor some retail therapy. Change things up with these side-trips from Cancun: Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling, Fishing Charters & Tours, & more), La Playa Xpuha (in Xpu-Ha) and Aktun Chen (in Akumal). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Mayan Museum of Cancun, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and get where you need to go with Cancun Cheap Transfers.

To see ratings, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Cancun trip planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. In March, daily temperatures in Cancun can reach 82°F, while at night they dip to 70°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
