Just some quick notes from our recent 2 week stay in cancun. Stayed at cancun plaza, south end of the strip. This place has been really slow to repair. About the only place left in the hotel zone where you can get a room on the beach for less than $30 a night. May have to share your room with a cockroach or two. Beach was still pretty nice at the south end. Club med area is great for having a spot where it is calmer. Bus drivers shorted us 3 times. Is it JUST me or do they try and cheat all the tourists? La Isla has really fixed up nice since our last trip shortly after wilma. Can anyone afford anything there? Had a meal at Come&Eats, where their prices looked to have increased 20% from 2 years ago and the quality has decreased. Worst overpriced food Ive eaten in looong time. Downtown you could still find the hamburger vendors selling 2 for 20 pesos. Yummers. Churros went from 8 pesos in 2005 to 15 pesos now. When did that happen? We found cancun to be really quiet the 2 weeks that we were there. I guess it was a typically slow time, but I expected more people. The beaches and hotels just did not seem anywhere near full. Enjoyed our stay in pdc more. Both places seem to have priced themselves out of my price range. Take away the nice beaches and I'm finding little left to like about cancun. I can save on airfare and stay in south beach for less.
