A Quick Update

In 2010, we moved back to the small town in Colorado that I never stopped missing while we lived in Mexico. Now I sometimes miss Mexico, but I wouldn't travel as freely as we did when we were there, camping out in remote areas and so forth.

Mexico today is in a period of change, and in many ways it is more dangerous now. That said, I have plenty of American friends who still live there very happily, just taking a few more precautions than they did in the past.

Just to say!


Visit Expedia…

Expedia is my favorite place to book airfare, and they handle hotels, car rentals, cruises, etc. I like the organization of the site for figuring out what flights I want. Click on the suitcase to take a look.

Summer all year… gorgeously turquoise ocean… sandy white beaches… shopping from Mexican handicrafts to designer clothes… stunning hotels with interesting architecture, many right on the beach… world-class restaurants… nightlife and dance clubs that go till early morning… Mayan ruins in the middle of it all… that’s Cancun!

Water sports include swimming, surfing, diving, boating, fishing, kayaking, and snorkeling. Day trips to Mayan archaeological sites offer you a glimpse of the fascinating civilization that was in the area for centuries.

No wonder Cancun is one of the most popular beach resorts in all of North and South America! With over three million visitors a year, the folks in Cancun have figured out how to provide what you want for a memorable vacation, whether it’s total relaxation, going out dancing, water sports, enjoying spring break or a honeymoon, or whatever.

Cancun’s history is short. In the early 1970s, the Mexican government had a study done to decide where to put a new resort. A little piece of land in the Caribbean sea, just off the coast of Yucatan, was chosen. It didn’t take long before tourists were coming in ever-increasing numbers. Now Cancun (on the mainland just opposite that slip of land) has a population of something over half a million — and the visitors keep coming!

Cancun is its own kind of place. It’s hardly typical Mexico, but it’s a lot of fun in its own way. Despite the considerable destruction from Hurricane Wilma in 2005, the city and region quickly rebuilt.

    Our family is going to Cancun this summer. We are staying at a Westin
    but I’m interested in going to the the Club Med there. Does anyone know
    if the Cancun Club Med sells a one day pass to use their facilities?

  • Rosana says:

    Try googling:

    cancun club med day pass

    and if that is too specific, try broader concepts, or email Club Med Cancun. It’s very unlikely that someone who knows the answer will turn up on this page!
