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.
Let the collections at Museo Iconografico de la Carrera Panamericana and Mayan Museum of Cancun capture your imagination. Get a sense of the local culture at La Isla Shopping Village and Parroquia de Cristo Resucitado. Explore Cancun's surroundings by going to Akumal Beach (in Akumal), Punta Sur (in Isla Mujeres) and Playa del Carmen (3D Museum of Wonders, El Jaguar Dorado, & more). There's more to do: kick back and relax at Playa Delfines and glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour.
