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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at La Isla Shopping Village and Iglesia de Cristo Rey. 3D Museum of Wonders and Gaston Charo Art Gallery Playa del Carmen will appeal to museum buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cancun: Ecopark Kantun Chi (in Puerto Aventuras), Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling, Fishing Charters & Tours, & more) and National Reef Park of Puerto Morelos (in Puerto Morelos). Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Parroquia de Cristo Resucitado, fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, kick back and relax at La Playa Xpuha, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Catedral de la Santisima Trinidad.

To find photos, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Cancun online travel route planner .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. In August, daytime highs in Cancun are 37°C, while nighttime lows are 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
