My 2 last visits... 2002 & 2004

I'm back from Cancun after almost 2 years since I last went there (and almost 20 since my very first visit to this place, as a small kid with my family). I started building this site back in December 2002 but unfortunately my dear old camera died during that trip and all my pictures were ruined, so I wasn't able to furnish this site properly :( and I was so mad and depressed about it that gave up posting more tips, LOL....

Now I've got a new camera and I made a few more pictures which I've posted, and I also added new lodging tips which I hope will be useful to you...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:WONDERFUL weather, clean & safe town, nice hotels, cool nightlife, lots of shopping & water sports, natural reserves & archeological sites closeby, etc.
  • Cons:Downtown isn't nice; everything is expensive and quite "americanized" (not so much of a Mexican touch); the hurricane season (May-November)!
  • In a nutshell:If you want to relax and spend some gorgeous days at the beach at a nice expensive hotel where you can eat, drink and have all the fun you want, this is the place to come!! VISIT CANCUN!

    Well, I'm not objective regarding Cancun: I spent 2 days here, atfer a trip in Chiapas, and the contrast between both was terrible. At that time, there are a lot of young Gringos, drunks, everywhere (it was shool vacations time). So, not my dream!
