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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cancun: Isla Mujeres (Playa Norte, Tortugranja (Turtle Farm), & more), Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling, Xplor Park, & more) and Croco Cun Zoo (in Puerto Morelos). Spend the 13th (Fri) in unforgettable company with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience. Pamper yourself for a day on the 20th (Fri) at some of the top local wellness centers. There's much more to do: buy something for everyone on your list at La Isla Shopping Village, make a trip to El Parque de las Palapas, race across the water with a speed boat tour, and tee off at Moon Palace Golf Course.

To see where to stay, photos, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Cancun itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. In October, daily temperatures in Cancun can reach 85°F, while at night they dip to 72°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
