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 hidden gems such as Museo Maya de Cancun y Zona Arqueologica de San Miguelito and Parroquia de Cristo Resucitado. Escape the urban bustle at Shark Diving and La Playa Xpuha. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cancun: Akumal (Akumal Beach & Aktun Chen), Isla Mujeres (El Centro, Captain Dulche's Museum, & more) and Playa del Carmen (3D Museum of Wonders, Gaston Charo Art Gallery Playa del Carmen, & more). Spend the 19th (Thu) observing fascinating marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour. And it doesn't end there: buy something for everyone on your list at La Isla Shopping Village, get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour, and steep yourself in history at El Rey Ruins (Zona Arqueologica El Rey).

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 22nd (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
