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.
Attractions like Playa Delfines and Mercado 28 make great kid-friendly stops. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cancun: Scuba & Snorkeling (in Playa del Carmen), Cobá Zona Arqueológica Cobá (in Coba) and Akumal Beach (in Akumal). And it doesn't end there: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, explore the ancient world of El Rey Archaeological Zone, glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and don't miss a visit to Av Kukulkan.

To find reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Cancun road trip planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. In March, daily temperatures in Cancun can reach 82°F, while at night they dip to 70°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
