"Rustic" "Authentic", "Typical Mexican" And Traditional Mexican I think that the Author needs to travel to the rest of Mexico so as to get an idea of what Typical, Authentic and Traditional really is. Maybe if he had been writing about Valladolid but Cancun...not so much.
It seems to be a promotional piece that was put on this website. The author is said to be a writer for the Marriot in Cancun.
Sad that he doesn't know the difference between peak and peek, nor that major development did NOT begin 40 years ago, although the idea was in the works.
Also interesting the four restaurants mentioned by name, a couple of which I have heard give kickbacks to taxi drivers or concierges for routing hotel guests to them.
A fluffy promotional piece which has no substantive info whatsoever.
it lost me when it mentioned Perico's. . .and omitted one of the best places in El Centro to find at least a smidgeon of Mexico. . .Parque de Las Palapas.
Have tried several times and even registered on the site to pull this article up and have been unsuccessful. Any hints on how each of you were able to see it. It keeps telling me I'm "not authorized" to view it. How does one become "authorized"? Just curious.
I didn't register or anything, just surfed over to the article. Not sure why you cannot view it......
Yes, the article is no longer available without logging in. I could see it yesterday but not now.... maybe they keep them public for 24 hrs and then put them in the archives.
The whole object of the article is a marketing tactic to gain exposure for their web site. They write the article then distribute it via such networks as a press release and others republish it on other web sites giving a link back to the writers site. In fact I've thought about doing similar myself but haven't got round to it.
Found it. Here's the same article in another location:
Thanks Steve and Michael. Really appreciate your help. I'm one of those that curiosity will be sure to kill the cat people. That plus the fact that I love Cancun and try to read anything I can get my hands on if it's relative to Cancun or Isla Mujeres. And Steve, I did register with the site and logged on but it still wouldn't show me the article. Whatever...
Thanks again for your help. Am anxiously counting down my days until I'm once again down in my favorite place in the world. The days sure seem to be passing slowly though.
