Cancun

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.
Explore Cancun's surroundings by going to Croco Cun Zoo (in Puerto Morelos), Akumal Beach (in Akumal) and Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling, Zipline, &more). There's lots more to do: get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, stop by Plaza Las Americas, pause for some serene contemplation at Parroquia de Cristo Resucitado, and explore the ancient world of El Rey Archaeological Zone.

You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Mexico City to Cancun due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Mexico City in June, expect Cancun to be somewhat warmer, temps between 36°C and 29°C.
