Late summer in Cancun

Overview

Flying into Cancun Photo, Cancun, Mexico
Quote:
The shopping in Cancun is in abundance. We took a bus downtown (the most common form of transportation here) and visited all the local shops and watched the interesting street vendors. The jet ski/snorkeling outing was extremely exciting. But one of the best things to do is partake in the many choices of activities offered, day or night ranging from dinner shows to miniature golf, at this resort (Crown Paradise Club).Quick Tips: As always, when traveling to Mexico, trade your US dollars in for pesos as this allows you to get the most for your money on shopping and food purchases. If you prefer weather that is not incredibly hot, August might not be the time for you to visit Cancun....Read More

While staying at this resort, make sure to catch one of the dinner shows. The activity directors at the resort perform double duty - during the day they are at the main pool leading and partaking in the various pool games and activities, however, by night they turn into dinner show performers! This resort has a large staff of activity directors, both male and female, that sing, dance and have an all around good time performing for guests. The resort has a large auditorium with a stage where the shows take place. They put on various skits and sing and dance. At one show, the guys performed as the Village People and the girls came out as the Spice Girls. Attending the evening shows is definitely e...Read More

Attraction | "Aqua World Jungle Tour"

Quote:
What made this excursion especially fun was the fact it was 2 adventures in 1. Not only did we get to go snorkeling which was what we originally intended to do, but we got to go jet skiing too. This company offers a Jungle Tour that starts out on jet skis through the mangroves. The tour guide is on the front jet ski and your job is to stay up with him. You can get going pretty fast, but it's a ball. We had one guy fall off his jet ski when he tried to cut across the wake of the one in front of him. Someone else lost a hat so we scooped it up on our way by it. I got drenched and almost thrown off of my jet ski when I went through a wake. Everyone is equipped with life vests so at least there's ...Read More

Spray Painting Street Vendors

Story/Tip

Spray painting Photo, Cancun, Mexico
Quote:
While visiting the small shops in downtown Cancun, we ran across one of the street vendors that makes his living spray-painting pictures. When you first get there, you wonder how someone could possibly use spray paint to craft a picture. This is the most amazing thing to watch! You pick out a picture you like from an album and he goes to town. He sprays various colors on a piece of cardboard, takes a strip of newspaper and dabs the paint to mix it together, uses bowls and spray can lids to sit on the painting and spray around to get the effect of a planet, and uses many other techniques to make the most beautiful pictures. Throughout the painting, he'll spray a can and light it and wave the flame...Read More
