Mexico Tourist Traps: 77 reviews and 35 photos

Beer on Airports, turists places may be as high as $4.
In Cancun asking for water in restaurant, you get bottle, so will have to pay for it.
In the same city, when renting car from airport you will have to pay $10 airport fees.
You can snorkle for free, if own gear by walking south by the beach from Regina Resort.
Be very carefool with your belongings, have belt with yours documents and money. Dont carry everything with you. Keep dokuments and credit cards in safety deposit box- some hotels don't charge for it .
Last time my wife was robbed on beach in Puerto Vallarta, while i was snorkeling. Demages were- video camera, picture camera, all documents(passports,credit card,checks etc.)money, hotel and car kays. In this case don't expect a lot of help from hotel(Playa los Arcos) or police. Nobody know what and where.Local phone calls from hotel may cost you $3 each- buy calling card and use pay phone.
If you attend Time Share presentation expext up to 4 hours of you time, you free dinner may be hamburger .You may get also cheap gifts.Remember that they selling only one week or two, so if the price is $10000 by 52 weeks - property is sold for half a million $.I am sure you can buy it for $5000.
Don't drink water from sink- you will be sorry.
