Just returned from a trip to Cancun and the second last day of our vacation we were approached at Plaza Isla for a free trip to Chiteut ixta (can't remember how to spell it but you know where I mean). We told the sales rep "a large white women from Brooklyn New York", that we already went there, we really did....... and she said well then I will give you your money back. Well this caught our attention because we were talking $150.00 US so we listened and asked questions for a few minutes and learned that we could have a free lunch with drinks after a free taxi ride to Mayan Palace and that they were not going to try to sell us anything!! Bull...........we figured this anyway but the money was in the back of our minds and we had no intention of purchasing "vacation ownership" or anything like it. She promised us it would only take an hour and a half so we went. Oh MY God! The place took my breath away as it would anyone, however the salesmen (plural) kept us there for 3 hours trying to negotiate a "timeshare" deal. He went from $23,000 down to $100.00 and also included a trade-in deal for a cruise.
I was so fed up by the end of this that we finally got our $150.00 and a free ride back to our 2 1/2 * resort in Cancun and got super drunk on at our inexpensive all-inclusive vacation. It did not take much free cervaza to get me going. I will never listen to a speel like that again. And and NO we did not get anything to eat or drink except ice water.
