Best Beach Hotel Zone
There are lots of excellent hotels in the 20 Km long line of sand that gave notoriety to Cancun, but I was told that, in same sections of it, the sea could become treacherous.
Krystal hotel had the advantage of being in one of the safest areas of the beach, and being safe, keeping the waves that make all the difference between pool and sea.
Kept the slabs
Upon arrival they offered to each one of us a slab with traditional motifs, with the only obligation to spend some minutes in a "information meeting".
We had an unexpected dose of time sharing promotion, with all the common show, of periodical clapping hands, proving that we were the only "silly people resisting to the offered marvels".
We did resist, and after not more than one hour, we left, with four slabs that fit very well in a small wall of my garden. I don't know if they keep on selling time sharing, but, if the rhythm of the clapping hands was half true, they had time to sell 50 hotels since then.
Lagoon - not to swim
Don't count on a quiet water to swim in the lagoon side.
There's no beach on that side, and it is used only for sports and fishing.
Beach is only in the ocean side, and I suggest that you choose carefully your hotel, since the sea along the sand stripe doesn't "behave" always in the same way, and some sections are dangerous.
Not at noon
Better than expected
Well... I must confess that when we saw the bus that would take us to Xcaret, I hesitated - it seemed a prehistoric vehicle, and I was afraid that we could end collecting pieces along the road.
No way! It was a good bus, comfortable, with air-conditioned, and the trip was safe and quick.
No need to use the car|
Caracol: Well located
It is not a very big mall, but... it is a mall, and it is located near the entrance of the long stripe of sand where the hotels are lined in a regular sequence.
We used it mainly to escape from the food of the hotel , and try to taste something different, and, you know, the women have the great skills to transform a daily visit to the same shops, displaying the same articles, in a always different and remarkable event.
