A February 2003 trip

Quote: We skipped the clichéd bar scene and went inland on our own for an incredible Cancun vacation.

Other than that, it was fun to explore the old ruins, mostly covered by jungle and not yet renovated. Be careful: there are quite a few deadly snakes around, so watch where you step. After your hard day, have a Corona and pizza at the National Park nearby—lunch with two beers each for two people was less than $4. Skip the pricier souvenirs there and drive 10 minutes to Piste, where street vendors will chase you down with handmade treasures. We bought a really cool carved jaguar head, a wall mask, and some other assorted novelties for about $20. Driving in Mexico felt easy and safe, and everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful.
