You’re on vacation in Cancun, Mexico. You leisurely roll out of bed, open the curtains and…uh-oh, it’s raining.

Think of this as a chance to give your red skin a break from the sun, and to do something different.

Boasting some of the most exclusive shops and brands in the world, Luxury Avenue in Plaza Kukulkan will force you to choose between a Burberry and a Coach bag.

4. Learn About the Area at the Museum

The artifacts were found at various Mayan ruin sites in the Yucatan Peninsula. The museum is located on the south side of the Convention Center in the Hotel Zone.
