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.
Bamboo Spa has been added to your itinerary. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Centro Ecologico Akumal and Half Moon Bay. Family-friendly places like Akumal Beach and Dolphinaris Barcelo will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Akumal (Akumal Bay & Hekab Be Biblioteca de Akumal), Gaston Charo Art Gallery Playa del Carmen (in Playa del Carmen) and Adoratorio, Ruinas Chac-hal-al (in Puerto Aventuras). There's more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Cenote Jardin del Eden.
