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 Stand-Up Paddleboarding and National Reef Park of Puerto Morelos. Venture out of the city with trips to Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling & Dolphin Discovery Playa Del Carmen Maroma), Ecopark Kantun Chi (in Puerto Aventuras) and Akumal Bay (in Akumal). There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Cobá Zona Arqueológica Cobá, whizz through the canopy at categoryPhrases.alias.some_of_the_top_local_zipline_courses_and_adventure_parks, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.

For where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Cancun driving holiday planner.
