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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Multum Ha Cenote and Zona Arqueologica El Rey. We've included these beaches for you: La Playa Xpuha and Xcacel Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cancun: Playa del Carmen (Zona Arqueologica Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya, &more), The Spider Monkey Reserve (in Punta Laguna) and Puerto Aventuras (Puerto Aventuras Marina & Xpu-ha Beach). On the 11th (Fri), spend a fun day on foot with Walking tours.
