I went to Cancun in 1980 (stayed at The Sheraton when it was the only hotel towards the south except for the Club Med) and bought a souvenir postcard picture booklet. The photos in the book are probably from 1979 or maybe a year or two earlier...I think you will find them interesting. Sorry for the glare - I may take them again if I can figure-out a better method. Cover of postcard booklet Captioned "Panoramic view of Cancun". I think this is probably somewhere between Wet-N-Wild and Club Med on the south end. Captioned "Hotels on the Beach, North Zone". The hotel in the foreground in the Caroussel. Yes, the infamous BBG is included in this group of older hotels on the bayside mainland. Captioned "Cancun - Panoramic View". This is obviously Punta Norte. The Camino Real (Dreams) and the tower (television?) are the only structures recognizable today. Notice the thick palm tree grove on the beach to the right of the tower. Captioned "Cancun Caribe Hotel". Obviously this is now the Hyatt Caribe, one of the oldest hotels in Cancun. Captioned "General air view of hotel area". Hyatt Caribe and vicinity looking north. Notice how lonely the El Presidente looks across the lagoon. Captioned "One of the tranquil beaches of Cancun". The Camino Real (Dreams) is barely visible to the right behind the plam tree grove. In my opinion this is where the Fiesta Americana Coral Beach sits now. Captioned "Air view of the hotel Camino Real". Look how nice the Camino Real (Dreams) was when it was really isolated, no Hyatt Regency next door. Captioned "Cancun - Panoramic View". They obviously like that caption! I think they need a new copywriter! Look at the isolation of the El Presidente on the bayside. Back cover of picture booklet. The pricetag has 35 pesos. I love that palm tree grove between the Camino Real (Dreams) and the Salvia condos.
