Resort Bracelets

Can anyone confirm... if you don't have a bracelet for a specific resort you dont get in?? Is security as high as it is in Cancun for people entering resorted areas?

By the way I leave tomorrow and am currently listening to Jimmy Buffet!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello, In order to avoid any hassle, i would suggest that you wear the wrist band at all times, as security can get a little uneasy with people having no bands on.(This applies to Playa d.carmen, as well as Cancun)

2)Jimmy buffet...is a good thing!

If you take it off or lose it, they'll charge you some ridiculous fee. Keep it on!

You could not even get to the lobby of our hotel without a bracelet. Some friends we met in Playa wanted to stop by to get ahold of us and were not allowed to come in to the hotel. As soon as your arrival transportation gets you to the hotel, they take you to check in and get a collar on you.

we have only done AI once. last yr in cancun due to the fact that we got an awesome deal!!! it was sooo ridiculously cheap we couldnt pass it up!! that being said...

we are not into the bracelet thing, but, we wore them. we kept them lose enough that we could move from wrist to wrist (for sunning purposes) did see some people w/ them on their ankles instead.
