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.
For shopping fun, head to La Isla Shopping Village or Galeria Balance Cancun. Museum-lovers will get to explore Mayan Museum of Cancun and 3D Museum of Wonders. Change things up with these side-trips from Cancun: Valladolid (Choco-Story Valladolid & Museo de Ropa Etnica de Mexico -- MUREM), Cobá Zona Arqueológica Cobá (in Coba) and Akumal Beach (in Akumal). Spend the 5th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, see the interesting displays at Ka'Yok' Planetario de Cancun, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.

If you are flying in from Ireland, the closest major airports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. January in Cancun sees daily highs of 31°C and lows of 22°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
