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.
Step off the beaten path and head to La Playa Xpuha and Riviera Maya. Visit Playa Marlin and Xpu-ha Beach for some beach relaxation. Change things up with these side-trips from Cancun: Valladolid (Catedral de San Servasio & Convent of San Bernardino of Siena), Cobá Zona Arqueológica Cobá (in Coba) and Puerto Morelos (Spas & Croco Cun Zoo). Next up on the itinerary: see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, kick back and relax at Akumal Beach, buy something for everyone on your list at La Isla Shopping Village, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Parroquia de Cristo Resucitado.
