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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Scuba & Snorkeling and Aktun Chen. Explore Cancun's surroundings by going to El Centro (in Isla Mujeres), Croco Cun Zoo (in Puerto Morelos) and Playa del Carmen (Cenote Chaak Tun, Nuestra Senora del Carmen Catholic Church, & more). Spend the 6th (Thu) observing fascinating marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour. There's much more to do: whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, take in the dramatic natural features at Cenote Azul, explore the fascinating underground world of Ecopark Kantun Chi, and examine the collection at Mayan Museum of Cancun.

For more things to do, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Cancun route planning app .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. In May, daily temperatures in Cancun can reach 86°F, while at night they dip to 75°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
