Ca Mau is in the Mekong Delta area at the far south of Vietnam. The town itself does not offer much of interest but anyone keen on botany or nature will find the swamps that surround Ca Mau an area of great interest. Unfortunately the area is a particulary good breading ground for mosquitoes which come out in force at night, especially during the rainy season. Make sure you take plenty of insect repellant and that your hotel has effective mosquitoe netting.
The most practical route is from Ho Chi Minh City by express bus which takes 7 to 8 hours. The bus station in Ca Mau is a little way out of the town but there is an effective shuttle service to the town centre. You can buy return tickets from the office in Ca Mau town.
