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 visit kid-friendly attractions like La Isla Shopping Village and Playa Delfines. Get out of town with these interesting Cancun side-trips: Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling, Quinta Avenida, & more), Cobá Zona Arqueológica Cobá (in Coba) and Akumal Beach (in Akumal). There's still lots to do: get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Iglesia de Nuestra Senora del Carmen, stroll through Playa Tortugas, and delve into the distant past at Punta Sur.

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 September, and nighttime lows around 75°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
