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.
Take a break from the city and head to La Isla Shopping Village and Playa Delfines. We've included these beaches for you: Playa Tortugas and El Cuyo Beaches. Take a break from Cancun with a short trip to Nativa Natural Park in Solferino, about 1h 30 min away. Spend the 9th (Sun) observing fascinating marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour. Spend the 16th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, tour the pleasant surroundings at Forum Beach Cancun, stop by Plaza Las Americas, and race across the water with a speed boat tour.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Cancun road trip website .
