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.

You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cancun: Playa del Carmen (Vidrio Soplado Mexicano, Parque Los Fundadores, & more), Puerto Morelos (National Reef Park of Puerto Morelos & Croco Cun Zoo) and Akumal Beach (in Akumal). Spend the 18th (Wed) observing fascinating marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour. Next up on the itinerary: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.
