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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Playa Norte and Playa Delfines. Punta Sur and El Rey Ruins (Zona Arqueologica El Rey) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Cancun: Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling, Xplor Park, & more). Spend the 14th (Tue) in unforgettable company with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience. Pamper yourself for a day on the 17th (Fri) at some of the top local wellness centers. There's lots more to do: buy something for everyone on your list at La Isla Shopping Village, stroll through Playa Tortugas, go for a walk through Avenida Kukulkan, and don't miss a visit to El Parque de las Palapas.

For other places to visit, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, use 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 August in Cancun, expect temperatures between 88°F during the day and 75°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
