Here are the top seven most popular international destinations this summer according to Priceline

Cancún, Mexico 

Cancún, Mexico, is one of North American travelers' favorite destinations. Since 1974 the city has been developing itself from a small fishing village to one of the top contenders for a tropical vacation.

Year-round warm weather affords this spot constant fun for travelers. The beaches are filled with crystal clear water that is warm in the summer.

If you feel like you're suffocating at home because of the heat, why not spend a couple of days in a tropical paradise where you can dip yourself into Caribbean waters whenever you feel stuffy?

London, England

Given the United Kingdom's sometimes gloomy weather, visiting in the summer is one of the few times you can enjoy sightseeing without running into rain or cold weather.

The summer here lets you do things like lounge at places like Battersea and Hyde Park. You can also walk around neighborhoods like Soho, grabbing coffee and window shopping.

Mexico City, Mexico 

Mexico City, Mexico, is an art deco wonderland. Set as the capital of Mexico, the big city is well-known for its food scene.

Here you can have fine dining that tastes amazing or try street food that can sometimes taste even more amazing.

Neighborhoods like Condesa are great for dog walking if you like traveling with pets. Hotels like Andaz Mexico City Condesa are great because they have a rooftop dog bar where you can grab a drink while your dog roams around.
