    There is a dark side of it all. Reef is being ruined, marine life disappears, turtles choose not to come back to the shores of the Mexican Caribbean and lay eggs any longer , mangroves are being cut in a widespread deforestation of the whole Yucatan peninsula's shoreline while all those new fancy hotels pop up where people spend their entire vacation on a hotel property "swimming" ( or rather drinking) in those shallow heated swimming pools without ever getting a sniff of a sea.

    I used to live in Cancun n 2006-2011, but then it became the Mexican Miami and I moved to Playa del Carmen. Now Playa is growing rapidly and it's time to move again , likely to Cozumel.

    Touristy city is good, it gives money to the area, but please do not forget the real Cancun which is beyond the shine, glitz and glamour of the Hotel Zone.

    Unfortunately, it cannot be both ways.
    Maybe for a bit, but then the secret gets out and the money grubbing developers move in.

    I agree it’s never going to be both ways.

    I know this is a bit off topic but if the developers didn’t exist would the rates increase due to tight availbility of rooms and such? I’m in favor of high density. Limits the sprawl and impact to the area. Stopping the developers also curbs job growth. There is no good way around it and I feel bad for city planners / council. It’s like constantly making a deal with the devil, then wait 5-10 years to see what happens. There’s no experience or education that can give you the skills to make these decisions. If someone says they have the answers they are definitely a politician because they’re lying! :)

    We just have too many people
