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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Punta Sur and Playa Norte. Step out of the city life by going to Swim with Dolphins and Parque Nacional Arrecife Puerto Morelos - Puerto Morelos Reef. Change things up with these side-trips from Cancun: Spas & Wellness (in Puerto Morelos) and Isla Mujeres (Captain Dulche's Museum & El Centro). There's more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Parroquia de Cristo Resucitado and stop by La Isla Shopping Mall.

To see reviews, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Cancun itinerary maker.
