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 Akumal Beach and Xcaret Eco Theme Park. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Playa Delfines and Playa Tortugas. Explore Cancun's surroundings by going to Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling, Zipline, & more), Croco Cun Zoo (in Puerto Morelos) and Isla Mujeres (Playa Norte & Punta Sur). Next up on the itinerary: laugh and play at Xel-Ha, delve into the distant past at El Rey Ruins (Zona Arqueologica El Rey), soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and examine the collection at Museo Maya de Cancun.

To see traveler tips, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Cancun vacation builder.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 85°F, and evening lows to 73°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Wed) so you can drive back home.
