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.
Relax by the water at Playa Delfines and Playa Norte. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like La Isla Shopping Village and Mayan Museum of Cancun. There's lots more to do: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, delve into the distant past at El Rey Archaeological Zone, and hunt for treasures at Mercado 28.

To see photos, reviews, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Cancun road trip site .

New Delhi, India to Cancun is an approximately 23.5-hour flight. You'll gain 10 hours traveling from New Delhi to Cancun due to the time zone difference. While traveling from New Delhi, expect a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Cancun, ranging from highs of 35°C to lows of 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Mon) early enough to go by car to Tulum.
