    • snorkelling

      Isla Mujeres Oct 8, 2014 at 10:23 AM

      I've read that you can snorkel on the western side of the island (in particular, by the Lighthouse and Manchones). I've also read that you can snorkel in El Garrafon Natural Park, but it sounds like you have to pay an operator to take you out to the snorkelling site (i.e. we can't just swim to the reef from the beach, which is what we normally do as we're relatively strong swimmers).

      Is this true?

      Thanks in advance!

    • bonus to have a car on the island?

      Isla Mujeres Oct 8, 2014 at 10:19 AM

      We have a car rented for the entire duration of our trip to Cancun (4 nights and 5 days). We would like to go to Isla Mujeres, but it sounds like it might be better just to leave the car at the port in Punta Juarez and take the pedestrian ferry over. Once there, it sounds like we can just rent scooters or golf carts to get around.

      VTers' thoughts on having a car in IM? Do you think it's more of a hindrance than a bonus?

      And how long do you think one could spend on the island? I totally get that it depends on what you want to do, but assume that we want to check out the beaches (Playa Norte and the other one), and explore the island ruins and shops.

      Buses or Rental Car

      Playa del Carmen Sep 28, 2014 at 9:32 AM

      Lately we have heard some horror stories regarding rental cars in this area of Mexico. Although we know there are many visitors that use rental cars without incident we were wondering if we should just stick to the buses instead. Any advice or personal experiences would be appreciated.

    • Why do you people leave the USA in the first place?

      Playa del Carmen Sep 14, 2014 at 6:36 AM

      I stumbled on this forum for travel and as I scrolled through the comments I thought "why do these people bother to visit?" I find most of you to be whiny, privileged, spoiled, complaining people who will not be satisfied with anything short of taking a slice of USA and plopping it down in some third world country. This is clearly a very very close thing to what 5th ave in PDC has done, and you do nothing but gripe.

      Let me give you a clue. PDC fifth is a glittering tourist trap designed to appeal to wealthy westerners (mostly Americans), and separate you from your money as rapidly as possible. It is NOT designed to give you a "taste of Mexico" but rather to isolate you from Mexico as much as possible.... think Boca Raton where the service industry all speak poor English and hawk overpriced giltzy souvenirs so you can hang on your wall or wear to show you are a world traveler.
      The people here despise you, but they need your money. They have contempt for you, even as they grovel. You can get over that, if you treat them kindly,with respect, and ask them questions about their lives. They are often very eager to practice English (I am teaching English to some of them here). Mexican people are, in general, some of the most kind and accommodating and friendliest people in the world.
      PDC is a perfect example of giving you what YOU want, which is small overpriced (CRAZY overpriced!!) refuge where you can indulge in an alcohol soaked binge of self indulgence, complete with sexual fantasies (they import girls from Eastern Europe who are functionally human slaves to perform whatever degraded acts rich perverts want) and drugs (they are sold openly on fifth). These, of course, draw in the crime syndicates, and the Zetas rule the strip, extorting "protection" money and wantonly killing any honest Mexican businessman who tries to resist, controlling both the drug trade and the sex industry..... and providing you a chance to "tsk tsk" at the horrible corruption and violence endemic to Mexico and to bless your lucky stars you don't have to live in such a filthy nasty place....., right.
      So, my advice to most of you is, STAY HOME. As bad as Mexico needs the tourist dollars, the crap you bring with you is actually more destructive than the poverty.

      OTOH, if you want a paradise of beach escape, complete with a chance to mingle with a class of Mexicans who are relatively wealthy and sophisticated compared to the rest of Mexico, a chance to expand past the small world of mall shopping and pre packaged life in the USA, a chance to meet people from all over the world, a chance to practice (or learn) a bit of Spanish, and a chance to take home true treasures (memories of some wonderful people), then check your ego, privilege, and snootiness at the USA airport and come on down. It can be a beautiful place.

    • Is it safe to drink alcohol in Cozumel?

      Isla Cozumel Sep 3, 2014 at 8:26 AM

      Me and my Husband are traveling to Cozumel in December.
      We heard that drinking any alcohol that is NOT in a closed bottle, to not drink it because it will
      make you really sick.

      If it's not safe to drink mixed drinks, what kind of alcohol do you drink besides beer?

      Is it safe in SR Frogs, and Hard Rock Cafe?
      Would appreciate the info :)

    • How to answer the local shop owners?

      Playa del Carmen Aug 14, 2014 at 10:27 AM

      My wife & I vacation in Playa del Carmen 2 weeks every September. Works into our business schedule plus it is a quiet time of the year. We stay at two different resorts about a mile south of the ferry terminal. We love to walk up the beach to playa for dinner and fun. The only issue I have is with the local shop keepers. They just harass us to visit their shops. We have plenty of the souviners that most of the shops offer, but we still like to look and usually find something we can't live with out. I realize that this is their livelihood but to be honest the shops are usually owned by some other fat cat. WHAT is the best way to say no. Other than just saying no and keep walking. I have found that just ignoring or overlooking them works well, but sometimes I feel it is mean. When I do go into one of these shops with overly zealous keeps I just say "I have all this what do you have that's new". That usually puts them on the defense and puts off the hard sell. Again I realize that this is Mexico and their culture. Any ideas for me to try this time?

      Thanks, Mike
