About CancunCancun on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula might have the reputation as a party town for college and high-school students on spring break, but there's so much more in this destination. It is Mexico's largest resort region, attracting roughly 3 million tourists annually, so there's an endless parade of entertainment for all ages. Count golf high on the list.
Away from the course, golfers can get pampered at all-inclusive resorts, where guests can revel in the beach, boating, fishing, water sports such as parasailing and water skiing, spa, tennis and more. Every major chain -- Ritz-Carlton, Marriott, Hilton, Iberostar, Dreams, Fairmont, Palace Resorts -- has a presence and their own unique charms. Touring archaeological sites around Cancun -- try El Rey, Yamil Lu'um, Chichen Itza, Tulum and Coba -- remains the No. 1 attraction. The Xel-Ha is a natural aquarium considered the largest aquarium in the world. This water theme park offers swimming with the dolphins, snorkeling and more.
Day trips to Cozumel, Playa del Carmen or the nature reserve of Sian Ka'an are easily doable for adventurous vacationers.
