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.
Xcaret has been added to your itinerary. Attractions like Akumal Beach and El Parque de las Palapas make great kid-friendly stops. Visiting Scuba & Snorkeling and Zipline will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting Cancun side-trips: Cobá Zona Arqueológica Cobá (in Coba), Isla Mujeres (Playa Norte & Guadalupe Chapel) and Palancar Reef (in Cozumel). There's lots more to do: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, contemplate the long history of El Rey Archaeological Zone, stop by Joyería Ambarte, and tee off at Cancun Golf Club at Pok-Ta-Pok.

For traveler tips, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, read our Cancun trip planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. December in Cancun sees daily highs of 82°F and lows of 70°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
