|for Playa del Carmen : inside Cancun news: goings-on about town|
Although the country might have suffered a slight PR problem in recent months due to exagerated news reports of violence along the northern border, and a US State Department warning that was issued in April 2012 for travelers heading to some of its states, the reality is that Mexico is actually much safer than the government would have you think.
The disconnect lies in the fact that Mexico is roughly the size of Western Europe, so border incidents have very little impact on life in the country's top tourist destinations. In fact, the best places to visit in Mexico can be found in the 17 states that are not mentioned in the travel warnings, such as the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico City and Baja California.
Mexico is a very large country, said Rodolfo Lopez Negrete, is BIG land, said the chief operating officer for the Mexico Tourism Board, in an interview with CNN. When you take into account the distance between Ciudad Juarez [the most violent city in Mexico] and Cancun, you're talking about 1,400 miles of distance. Puerto Vallarta is 1,000 miles away and Los Cabos about 1,600 miles away. That is equivalent to the distance between New York and Houston.
Mexico's Yucatan state remains one of the safest in the country and is home to a wide variety of fabulous destinations that are located near the party city of Cancun. In fact, some of Mexico's most popular Mayan archaeological sites can be found here, including those at Chichen Itza and Tulum, along with a number of traditional and very charming Mexican colonial cities, such as Merida. To give you an idea of how safe this area really is, the Yucatan state, which has roughly the same population as the US state of Kansas, only experienced two drug-related deaths in 2010, while Wichita, Kansas, had six gang-related killings last year.

visit the Acapulco CopaCobana now
Is there any other location to be in Acapulco? On the beach a few minutes walk to the discos. Five minute walk to the Convention Center. Twenty minutes from the famous Quebrada. In front of the golf club.
That means that if your departure or return flight falls on a Monday, Thursday, Friday, or Sunday, you're paying more than you need to.
It may take some juggling of your vacation time; such as a trip that runs Tuesday to Tuesday rather than Sunday to Sunday; but what you lose in flexibility you more than make up for in savings.

Jane laughed off the warning her friends gave her about Italian boys from South Brooklyn.
A dull ripping sound startled poor Jane.
Tony got up. He held something in his right hand.
What's that asked a frightened Jane.
Just this said Tony flinging the mattress patch at her.
The one that states Do not remove under penalty of law.
You idiot screamed Jane. Removing that mattress tag is direct disobedience of United States government regulations!
You destroyed the proof this mattress was made in compliance with acts of the District of Columbia.
Chill out replied Tony. Get into the bed woman!

Cancún, 9 de Noviembre.- El gobernador del Estado, Félix González Canto, sostuvo hoy una reunión con el secretario de Turismo, Rodolfo Elizondo Torres, donde se acordó que en la segunda quincena de diciembre se pondrá en marcha el proyecto de recuperación de playas, con una inversión de 200 millones de pesos.
In other words the Governor of Quintana Roo Félix González Canto reached an agreement with Federal Secretary of Tourism for 20 million dollars to recuperate Cancun's beaches.
This will focus from Punta Cancun to Punta Nizuc where the beaches were damaged. Work will begin mid-December so my guess is by the end of December improvement should be seen judging by the speed they recuperated beaches in Playa del Carmen.
In Chetumal (382 kilometers from Cancun) Pascual Ucan Cuitun bothered by his baby's constant crying put a sock in its mouth.
Later it was found he was smoking grass and stoned out of his mind.
What did he tell the authorities?
That he was so stoned he mistook his baby's mouth for a foot?

The project to recuperate the beaches of Cancun reach 200 million pesos.
The private sector contracted the firm Baird Costal Engineering who is responsible for the supervision of the project.
To insure reefs and other flora and fauna of the oceans will come to no harm environmental impact was studied with the committee Semarnat, the authorities of Parque Marino, the head of ecology of Benito Juarez, with consults to local ecological organizations.
International experts were consulted regarding technical oceanographic aspects.
This project which was first conceived in 2002 is now well under way and thanks to Mexican engineering and technical efforts working with international expertise more than three million meters of sugar-white sand line the cost of Cancun's beaches.
This successful project is a beautiful working example of the tight relationship between the development of tourism and the conservation and care of natural resources.
It is a model example of citizens working with the private sector and the Mexican government.
Witness and celebrate this here in Cancun on our sugar-white beaches caressed by transparent turquoise waters.
At the III Foro Nacional de Turismo, Rafael Lang director general of the Puerto Cancun Project indicated the basic infrastructure (roads; water; electric; drainage) for that part of the project corresponding to the hotel zone of Puerto Cancun should be completed in June of this year (2005).
Puerto Cancun in its entirety when complete will have living areas; a hotel zone; marinas; golf course; commerical areas for shopping.
This project will have a strong social impact generating more than 10,000 jobs directly and 25,000 indirectly.
It is hoped the 18 hole golf course will be completed in 2006.
The golf course will be of professional category of 75 hectares bordering on the ocean.
The marina will have a capacity for more than 330 vessels.
Rafael Lang indicated it will take 10 years to complete all the buildings in Puerto Cancun.

Everyone takes the bus to Wal-Mart. Yes, Cancun has a Wal-Mart. As a matter-of-fact it has two. There are also several Chedrauis; many Comercial Mexicanas; a Carrefour; and a Soriana. Each super-market has its own advantages. And in addition to these indoor air-conditioned mega stores you can find outdoor markets such as mercardo 23 or mercardo 28. If all you need is a loaf of bread and a six pack of beer any of the supermarkets will do. However: IF you are looking for tender beef the Soriana offers choice red meat. For a wide selection of exotic fruits also go to Soriana. Vegetables are most extensive at the Mega Comercial Mexicana. For bagels from Mexico City the Wal-Mart is your only choice.

So you want to swim with the dolphins. Before spending $80usd to swim with the dolohins remember you can swim with Joel Gondelman for free. There are several places to swim with dolhpins in Cancun. In the heart of the hotel zone in La Isla mall in the aquarium. Visit La Isla mall
Or at Parque Nizuc (alias: Wet and Wild) on the road to the airport. About 2 miles out of the hotel zone.
To learn more about dolphins IS the dolphin a porpoise?
The price to swim with these intelligent creatures depends on where you go; how long you swim; and the type of experience, i.e, 'interactive'.
Playa del Carmen to Cozumel ferries run to 11PM. Puerto Juarez to Isla Mujeres has boats until 10:30PM. IF you come in from the islands to the mainland to party know there are boats after dawn to get you back to your hotel

Airport planned for Tulum. Construction to begin in 2005. Fly down to the Akumal area now.
Quintana Roo is a model of what turism can do for a state. After the Mexican revolution the Mayans lived almost as slaves working on the haciendas. Today there are more oportunities of employment for everyone in areas directly or indirectly related to turism.
Tourism is the third most important industry in Mexico.
The friendliness of the Mexican people encourage tourism.
After just 34 years of existance Cancun has a population in size of Merida, a city of hundreds of years in age.
Some of the lobster caught in the waters of Isla Mujeres is exported to the USA.
Quintana Roo now has the highest level of immigration in Mexico.
Cruise ships contribute little to the city hosting them, rather they take advantage of existing infrastructures and natural surroundings.
