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.
Popular historic sites such as Punta Sur and Zona Arqueologica El Rey are in your itinerary. Visiting Akumal Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Playa Norte (in Isla Mujeres), Playa del Carmen (Nuestra Senora del Carmen Catholic Church, Zona Arqueologica Playa del Carmen, &more) and Punta Laguna Nature Reserve (in Tulum). The adventure continues: browse the different shops at La Isla Shopping Village, stroll through Playa Delfines, browse the eclectic array of goods at Mercado 28, and kick back and relax at Playa Tortugas.

To find maps and other tourist information, refer to the Cancun vacation builder website.
