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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Epic Water Toys. Visiting Akumal Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling will get you outdoors. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Playa Delfines and Playa Tortugas. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cancun: Zipline (in Playa del Carmen), Spas (in Puerto Morelos) and Isla Mujeres (Playa Norte & Punta Sur). There's much more to do: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, browse the different shops at La Isla Shopping Village, browse the eclectic array of goods at Mercado 28, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Parroquia de Cristo Resucitado.

To see traveler tips, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Cancun road trip planning website.
