Cancun — 10 nights

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.
We've included these beaches for you: Akumal Beach and Playa Norte. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like La Isla Shopping Village and Parroquia de Cristo Resucitado. Get out of town with these interesting Cancun side-trips: Puerto Morelos (Spas & Tequila Factory Cancun and Villas), Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling, Quinta Avenida, &more) and Punta Sur (in Isla Mujeres). There's still lots to do: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, tee off at Cancun Golf Club at Pok-Ta-Pok, explore the galleries of Galeria Balance Cancun, and hunt for treasures at Mercado 28.

For other places to visit, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Cancun trip itinerary maker.
