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.
Relax by the water at Playa Delfines and Akumal Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Xel-Ha and Scuba & Snorkeling. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cancun: Playa del Carmen (Xcaret Eco Theme Park, Siete Detalles, & more). There's lots more to do: stop by La Isla Shopping Mall, enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Tortugas, fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, and get advice or help at Mandala Beach.

To find maps, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, read our Cancun itinerary maker.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from Seattle, USA to Cancun. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 3 hours traveling from Seattle to Cancun. Traveling from Seattle in August, expect Cancun to be a bit warmer, temps between 88°F and 75°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
