People are very cordial and funny. Should visit this place. Street food is best. Along wth the Mayan history and Beach you cannot think of anything else for the time you spend here.

travel Cancun airport to ADO Avenida Tulum station (3 Replies)
The Cancun airport advertises a bus going directly from the airport to the ADO Downtown station, which I think would be the one on Avenida Tulum, where we can get a bus going to Merida. My email to them bounced. Has anyone used this service lately? Last time there our overnight hotel driver did not show, which meant a pricey taxi to our hotel in the same area as the bus station and we think this time we will just keep on going to Merida if possible. Any other suggestions?

Cheap Golf Balls (0 Replies)
Hi there, as any golfer that has played at a Cancun course will testify, green fees thru accessories will leave you a rather empty in the pocket. To help, there is a recently opened outlet called Tenis Park (no typo) and it can be located at the rear of the Plaza Las Americas in downtown Cancun on Avenida Tulum. It is not part of the mall, but simply a stretch over the busy 8 lanes of traffic (there is a footbridge if you are feeling cautious) They sell bags of 20 varied but good quality...More

El Crucero (11 Replies)
Interesting reading from Merida Yucatan Bulletin about El Crucero, a shopping area very near the center of downtown Cancun. It shows why you really need to know the town if you choose to walk around on your own. I was in the area years ago before I knew the dangers.""CANCUN'S 'EL "CRUCERO'...A WAR ZONE. The wave of killings continues in Cancun, with two dismembered bodies found early this morning. There have now been 113 homicides in Cancun so far this year - with nine deaths last...More

Akumul Bay been affected? We were thinking of swimming with the turtles but if it is going to be a hassle then we probably won't. The fake guides were enough of a nuisance the last time I was there trying to tell me where we can and can't swim without a guide. Blew right by them and did what we wanted to!!
