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 Akumal Beach and Playa Delfines. Do your shopping at La Isla Shopping Village and Alma Libre Bookstore. Explore Cancun's surroundings by going to Playa Norte (in Isla Mujeres) and Playa del Carmen (Quinta Avenida & Scuba & Snorkeling). And it doesn't end there: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, hunt for treasures at Mercado 28, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, and find something for the whole family at Selvatica.
