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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Playa Delfines and Playa Norte. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Joyería Ambarte and Caravan. Venture out of the city with trips to Two Eyes Cenote (in Tulum), Alberto's (in Zihuatanejo) and Playa del Carmen (Zipline, Scuba & Snorkeling, &more). Next up on the itinerary: whizz through the canopy at Xel-Ha Park by Xcaret, stop by Plaza Las Americas, browse the different shops at La Isla Shopping Village, and fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.

To see maps, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Cancun day trip planning website.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Cancun can reach 89°F, while at night they dip to 76°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Sat) so you can travel back home.
