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 Puerto Aventuras Marina and Xpu-ha Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cancun: Puerto Morelos (Shark Diving, Parroquia Catolica de San Jose, & more), Playa del Carmen (Nuestra Senora del Carmen Catholic Church, Cenote Chikin Ha, & more) and Ecopark Kantun Chi (in Puerto Aventuras). The adventure continues: cool off at La Playa Xpuha, see the interesting displays at Captain Dulche's Museum, tee off at Iberostar Golf Club Playa Paraiso, and enjoy breathtaking views from Torre Escenica.

For more things to do, ratings, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Cancun trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. In April, daytime highs in Cancun are 85°F, while nighttime lows are 74°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
