Hi. My family of five will be going to Cancun this March. This will be our first trip there. I've read thru many of the posts here. I have lots of questions for activities and tours for my family. The ages of the kids are 17, 14 and 5. We cashed in my dh's Marriott points and will be staying at the JW Mariott. As far as activities such as snorking, tours of the Island, can we book these thru the hotel upon arrival? I'm very interested in street markets where you can barter to buy items. Are there any on Cancun? What are the ones we should visit? Do the street markets take American dollars? Also, I've read in a book that we shouldn't expect to swim in the ocean. That it's uncommon to see a green flag. This is a big concern to me. My kids love the ocean. Is this true? I however, prefer a pool ! :wink: This is all for now. I'll be back with more questions as they come to mind! Thanks!!
