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.
Visit Playa Delfines and Akumal Beach for some beach relaxation. Explore Cancun's surroundings by going to Isla Mujeres (Isla Brewing Company & Playa Norte) 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, take in the exciting artwork at Galeria Balance Cancun, stop by Plaza Las Americas, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Parroquia de Cristo Resucitado.
