An October 2003 trip
to Cancun by GoodGirlsFinishLast
Quote: The was a girls' week of bonding and crazy fun in Cancun, Mexico. Ole!
Hotel | "Sun Club/Continental Plaza"
The accommodations were spacious villas with a small kitchen area, an enclosed bedroom, and a dining room/living room. The bathroom doors were adjacent to the bedroom and living room. The beds and couches were very hard -- ask for an extra mattress for a great night's sleep!

Attraction | "Chichen Itza"
The bus trip stopped at a small village where you could buy candies/souvenirs/local art at a good price. We also stopped for a traditional Mayan lunch buffet-style. The food was excellent and included fish, beef, chicken, and vegetarian dishes. You must try the rice pudding!
The guided tour portion of the ruins was when you could explore the game court and the largest Mayan temple. You are then given approximately 45 minutes to explore on your own, including climbing the pyramid. Get ready to overcome your fear of heights! It is almost a vertical climb and is best tackled by climbing in a zigzag path up and down. There are also observatory ruins, royal palace ruins, and a museum where you can find great souvenirs and books.

The lagoon is filled with giant crocodiles at night - can sit at restaurants at night at watch them snap and eat a whole chicken in a single gulp!!
Snorkelling off a sandy area in the middle of the ocean??? somewhere past the lagoon. Not much fish...a few sting rays though.
All together a good time. For those with a need for speed - just lag behind and zig zag like crazy!
