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.
Get outdoors at La Playa Xpuha and Akumal Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Aktun Chen and Xpu-ha Beach. Explore Cancun's surroundings by going to Ecopark Kantun Chi (in Puerto Aventuras), Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling, Nuestra Senora del Carmen Catholic Church, & more) and Puerto Morelos (Spas & Wellness, Parroquia Catolica de San Jose, & more). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Akumal Monkey Sanctuary & Rescued Animals, glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, see the interesting displays at Mayan Museum of Cancun, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Xcacel Beach.

For reviews, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, go to the Cancun road trip site .

In January, daily temperatures in Cancun can reach 31°C, while at night they dip to 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
