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.
Explore Cancun's surroundings by going to Parroquia Catolica de San Jose (in Puerto Morelos) and Quinta Avenida (in Playa del Carmen). The adventure continues: browse the different shops at La Isla Shopping Village, get in on the family fun at Selvatica, go for a walk through Av Kukulkan, and kick back and relax at Playa Delfines.

To see photos, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Cancun online journey planner .

Getting from Mexico City to Cancun by flight takes about 5 hours. Other options: do a combination of bus and flight; or drive. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Mexico City to Cancun due to the time zone difference. In July, Cancun is somewhat warmer than Mexico City - with highs of 36°C and lows of 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sun) so you can travel back home.
