Cancun, Mexico

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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like La Playa Xpuha and Spas & Wellness. Visiting Shark Diving and Canyoning & Rappelling Tours will get you outdoors. Change things up with a short trip to Nuestra Senora del Carmen Catholic Church in Playa del Carmen (about 1h 30 min away). There's more to do: get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour.

To see more things to do, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Cancun trip itinerary planner.
