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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cancun: Isla Mujeres (Punta Sur & Playa Norte) and Palancar Reef (in Cozumel). The adventure continues: browse the different shops at La Isla Shopping Village, steep yourself in history at Zona Arqueologica El Rey, tee off at Moon Palace Golf Course, and see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

For reviews, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Cancun day trip app.

Buenos Aires, Argentina to Cancun is an approximately 12.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus. The time zone changes from Argentina Standard Time (ART) to Eastern Standard Time (EST), which is usually a -2 hour difference. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from Buenos Aires in September, with highs in Cancun at 36°C and lows at 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Tijuana.
