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.
Get outdoors at Scuba & Snorkeling and Swim with Dolphins. Explore Cancun's surroundings by going to Playa del Carmen (Quinta Avenida & Zipline) and Akumal Beach (in Akumal). There's much more to do: stroll through Playa Delfines, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and buy something for everyone on your list at La Isla Shopping Village.
