If you're a Los Angeles local looking for some international fun in the sun, take a short flight to Cancun, Mexico, a beautiful Caribbean destination where visitors go to get married, explore the Mayan ruins, and enjoy water sports like scuba diving. You can drive to the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), or you can opt for public transportation, shared ride vans or taxis to get you there. It should take less than five hours to fly from LA to Cancun.
Getting around this area of the Yucatan Peninsula isn't a problem with the available choices of car rental, bus or taxi. You'll find the popular Playa Ballenas beach among the 14 miles of white sand. Outdoor activities abound here, such as snorkeling at Punta Nizuc, swimming with dolphins at Xcaret Park, and hitting some balls at the Cancun Golf Club at Pok Ta Pok. You can also spend time exploring the region's history by visiting the well-known stepped pyramids in Chichen Itza and Coba.
Cancun International Airport (CUN) is one of the busiest airports in Mexico and consists of three terminals. Cancun used to be a deserted fisherman island until the 1970s when plans began to turn the idyllic location into a tourist attraction. The weather is beautiful year-round with average temperatures ranging from the low 70s to the low 90s.
