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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Playa Delfines and El Cuyo Beaches. Step out of the city life by going to National Reef Park of Puerto Morelos and Fishing Charters & Tours. Get out of town with these interesting Cancun side-trips: Puerto Morelos (Ojo de Agua Beach, Alma Libre Bookstore, &more), Isla Mujeres (El Centro, Playa Norte, &more) and Teamworks Adventures (in Playa del Carmen). Spend the 21st (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Make the 9th (Fri) an unforgettable day with an extreme tour. Next up on the itinerary: take in panoramic vistas at Torre Escenica, tour the pleasant surroundings at Tankah Beach, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and pause for some serene contemplation at Parroquia de Cristo Resucitado.
