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: Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling, Quinta Avenida, & more) and Cobá Zona Arqueológica Cobá (in Coba). There's lots more to do: buy something for everyone on your list at La Isla Shopping Village, kick back and relax at Playa Delfines, don't miss a visit to Av Kukulkan, and explore the ancient world of El Rey Archaeological Zone.
