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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cancun: Akumal Beach (in Akumal), Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling, Xplor Park, & more) and Punta Laguna Nature Reserve (in Tulum). Spend the 4th (Sun) in unforgettable company with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience. Next up on the itinerary: buy something for everyone on your list at La Isla Shopping Village, stop by Plaza Las Americas, don't miss a visit to El Parque de las Palapas, and take in the pleasant sights at Avenida Kukulkan.
