Cancun
Yes, a fair amount of Cancun is a booze-soaked haven for spring breakers. However, there are plenty of gorgeous, drama-free family resorts that cater to folks who want to experience the tropical Yucatan climate. There are significant Mayan ruins here, such as El Rey and the Yamil Lu’um, a crumbling tower of pale gray stone. Learn more about this ancient civilization at the Museo Maya de Cancun. For a literal taste of Mexico, take a tour of the Museo Sensorial del Tequila.
