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.
Start off your visit on the 28th (Sat): take in the pleasant sights at Av Kukulkan, then hunt for treasures at Mercado 28, and then fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience. On the next day, browse the different shops at La Isla Shopping Village, contemplate the long history of El Rey Ruins (Zona Arqueologica El Rey), and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Playa Delfines.

For photos, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Cancun journey planner.
