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 get in some beach time at Akumal Beach and Parque Los Fundadores. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at La Isla Shopping Village and Vidrio Soplado Mexicano. Explore Cancun's surroundings by going to La Playa Xpuha (in Xpu-Ha), Galeria Lamanai (in Akumal) and Playa del Carmen (Dolphinaris Riviera Maya Park, Nuestra Senora del Carmen Catholic Church, & more). Spend the 26th (Thu) observing fascinating marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Museo Maya de Cancun y Zona Arqueologica de San Miguelito, explore the ancient world of El Rey Ruins (Zona Arqueologica El Rey), get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Parroquia de Cristo Resucitado.

For ratings, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Cancun online visit planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 88°F in July, and nighttime lows around 76°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
