Mexico: Cancun

Your Rating:Five Stars
Reviewed by: Chastity Ward
Date of Trip: June 8, 2000

Cancun was absolutely beautiful! The ocean was so blue and there were plenty of things to do to keep you busy. The people there were exceptionally friendly. We had the time of our lives in Cancun.

Getting There
You get to Cancun from the U.S.A by plane. Once we got there our travel tour company brought us to our hotel by bus. If you weren't on a trip run by a tour company then you would have to take a taxi.

The flight to Cancun from Atlanta only took about two hours. We took a charter flight which turned out to be more comfortable than most other flights I've been on. The hotel was very nice. The rooms were done in a traditional Mexican style. The floors were tile and the walls stucco. The hotel had a lot of open air lobbies and things like that. It was very nice for a Mexican hotel, very clean.

Food and Service
The airplane food was very good for such a short flight. We got sandwiches, fruit, and crackers. It was satisfactory. The hotel food was OK. It was all buffet style and included a wide variety of items. There were many restaurants to choose from in our hotel. Despite the number of things to choose from, I never was really satisfied with the meals at our hotel. The snacks were good, but I am used to more Americanized, plain food.

There were a lot of things to do in Cancun. If you only have one day there then you should definitely go on one of the snorkeling tours that are offered. We went on one offered by AquaWorld, called the Jungle Tour. The Jungle Tour was so awesome, the snorkeling was great. If you have more than one day, go to the flea market, and to Daddy O's, and Senor Frogs if you are in for a wild time. The malls are kind of overpriced, but still fun to go in and look around.

The pool at Royal Solaris was great! It had a nice swim-up bar. The pool was absolutely huge. There were actually four pools, and they were all nice. The hotel offered many activities like water aerobics and other stuff like that. They also had a nice gym where they offered a variety of activities, but I never really got to do any of that while I was there.

I don't really know if there was a babysitting service....I'm only 20 years old. There were a lot of kids around though. They were in the pool, on the beach. There were even some kids on the snorkeling tour with their parents.
