We took the entire route, getting on and off several times. Busses can get crowded late afternoon but catch the next one in a few minutes, if necessary. So many of the busses seem to run to Wal-Mart! Ugh, seems nowhere can you escape a Walmart! We enjoyed spying all the beautiful resorts along the way. Malls and shopping for... More

My cousin, who is Australian and speaks not one word of Spanish, was staying in the Zone Hotelera where she was attending a medical conference, while I was staying at the Xbalamke in Cancun City. Each day I would walk over, along the lagoon side of this rather bland but inoffensive street, to meet up for the afternoon/evening activities. After... More

you can walk or take the bus for 10 pesos to stop at various places along the way, we went to Plaza Isla, a big open mall, mostly with American shops and some local stand with bridges over the canal, looking like Venice, not fake as in Las Vegas. We also stopped at the flea market, with some stands in... More

This is the main road running in front of the hotels and resorts. Very convenient, Texan literally step out your hotel front door and catch one of the local busses running day and night. Its very inexpensive and can take you all the way to downtown where you can shop in Market 28 or Walmart. There's some pretty nice boutique... More

The Kukulkan avenue is a safe place to walk or ride a bus from your hotel to any point within the hotels zone and even the downtown, There are some areas with empty properties, but in general the sidewalks, signs and bus stops are well kept. If you have any doubt of where you should leave the bus, you can... More

main area for tourists, very safe, spotless. well maintained, well lit. safe to walk along the sidewalks, take in some breathtaking sights, and of course the legendary nightlife that is cancun's leading attraction.

There are many upscale areas along with some not-so-nice areas. We noticed recently that some of the larger chain restaurants were closing/moving to elsewhere. They have leaned up some of the more *unfriendly* shops along the street and are doing some new construction also. Overall you can probably find what you are looking for along the avenue.

It's too touristic! There are just big hotels, restaurants and discos for tourists. There is nothing to do or see there. It's just a place that you must see if you are in Cancun but nothing to do there.

This two way main thoroughfare in the heart of the hotel zone is the only way around town. The R1 and R2 buses plus the taxis run all day long along this avenue making it very convenient To get around. All the resorts and shopping are along this busy street as well as the bars and nightclubs that cater to... More
