We stayed at a hotel over the weekend, the decline in guest numbers was nothing short of upsetting. On Sunday they closed the buffet for dinner, everyone was eating in the specialty restauarants. Today 80 people checked out and just 10 checked in. Many staff have been sent home for two weeks. One bartender, when we expressed concern, told us not to worry about him - he had his savings to live off.... his savings after working there for around 10 years amount to just over $200. Needless to say he has a little more than that now. This same story is repeated thousands of times over all of Cancun - and all for the sake of column inches and ratings. Cancun is hurting right now and it is only people like you that can help it recover. If you can make it down here please do so, lets get these guys and girls back in work!
