A June 2005 trip
to Cancun by bluevuefam
Quote: Some of Cancun is okay, but it is not a happy vacation for a traveling family. Some things seem fantastic at first glance, but you often think they are NOT later. Be peso-ready, because the only bargains were the plethora of T-shirts that don't come close to American quality. Cancun, no can do!
We had did not get the inclusive "package," figuring we'd go out for dinner at least, which was a big mistake, because the prices are HIGH!!! If the hotel is just a sleepover spot for you, then it’s an okay place, but expensive.
I wasn't able to play golf as originally planned due to a broken foot, but what I saw of the golf course looked very nice and well maintained. If you're a resort guest its $125 per round - not really unexpected for a resort course. Overall, the Cancun Hilton would rate just okay to us.

Then, back to the boat, you have free drinks and a cruise to another side of the island, where you can wander around the little town and shop for many nice souvenirs, many at better prices than similar stuff in Cancun. Be ready to haggle for prices; they enjoy it. Then it’s back to the boat for several free drinks on your way back to Cancun.
As fun and scenic and exciting as the whole trip was, the best part of all was the crew on our boat, especially our snorkel teacher, Hector, and Frankie, one of the funniest people I've ever met. Do this trip if you go to Cancun! It was the highlight of our whole week.
