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 (Punta Sur & Playa Norte) and Palancar Reef (in Cozumel). And it doesn't end there: buy something for everyone on your list at La Isla Shopping Village, scramble along the landscape with a canyoning and rapelling tour, go for a walk through Av Kukulkan, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Playa Delfines.
