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.
Get outdoors at Shark Diving and Playa Delfines. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at National Reef Park of Puerto Morelos and Spas. Change things up with these side-trips from Cancun: Isla Mujeres (JOYSXEE Floating Bottle Island, Punta Sur, &more) and Zipline (in Puerto Morelos). There's more to do: find something for the whole family at Xoximilco Cancun by Xcaret and browse the different shops at La Isla Shopping Village.
