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.
Museo Maya de Cancun and Parroquia de Cristo Resucitado are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Popular historic sites such as Nuestra Senora del Carmen Catholic Church and Punta Sur are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Cancun: Puerto Morelos (Croco Cun Zoo & Parque Nacional Arrecife Puerto Morelos - Puerto Morelos Reef), Xcaret Eco Theme Park (in Playa del Carmen), Aktun Chen (in Akumal), Scuba & Snorkeling (in Isla Mujeres) and Ecopark Kantun Chi (in Puerto Aventuras). Spend a fascinating day underwater on the 5th (Tue) with a shark diving experience. Spend the 4th (Mon) observing fascinating marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour. Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Delfines, contemplate the long history of El Rey Ruins (Zona Arqueologica El Rey), stop by Coppel Plaza Las Americas, and fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.
