Places in Mexico
Cancun, Cozumel & the Yucatan
The Yucatán Peninsula captivates visitors with its endless offerings of natural wonders and an ancient culture that's still very much alive today. Culture & Fun In case you need a little something more than pretty beaches, ancient ruins and outdoor adventures, you'll be glad to know that culture and fun-filled activities abound in the Yucatán.
Cancún & Around
Cancún is a tale of two cities. There's the glitzy hotel zone with its famous white-sand beaches, unabashed party scene and sophisticated seafood restaurants. Then there's the actual city itself, which gives you a taste of local flavor at, say, a neighborhood bar or taco joint. That's what keeps Cancún interesting.
