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 Akumal Beach. Get a sense of the local culture at Punta Sur and El Rey Archaeological Zone. Go for a jaunt from Cancun to Playa del Carmen to see Scuba & Snorkeling about 1h 35 min away. Spend the 20th (Sun) in unforgettable company with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience. Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Delfines and find something for the whole family at Selvatica.

For photos, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Cancun road trip planning site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. In October, daily temperatures in Cancun can reach 86°F, while at night they dip to 73°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) so you can travel back home.
