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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Akumal Beach and Parque Los Fundadores. Get a sense of the local culture at Museo Maya de Cancun y Zona Arqueologica de San Miguelito and La Isla Shopping Village. Venture out of the city with trips to Playa del Carmen (Quinta Avenida, Scuba & Snorkeling, & more) and Isla Mujeres (Punta Sur & Playa Norte). Next up on the itinerary: delve into the distant past at El Rey Ruins (Zona Arqueologica El Rey), pause for some serene contemplation at Parroquia de Cristo Resucitado, make a trip to Av Kukulkan, and fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.

To find maps, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Cancun vacation planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. In October in Cancun, expect temperatures between 86°F during the day and 73°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
