Going to Cancun Mexico for the 4th of July

In my 30 LONG years of life, I've never been on a real vacation. Believe it or not.

My girlfriend, her parents and I are all going for 7 days.

It will be so nice to sit back and relax with no worries.

We're going to http://www.applevacations.com/showHo...mand=showHotel

::Sigh:: White sand, clear blue water, etc. Shall I continue to rub it in?

I've always wanted to go there, and that place looks great. Have a safe and fun trip. They say don't drink the water.

bon voyage! and have a great time!!

P.S. i'm sure all the burglars in your neighborhood appreciate the heads up, Mike!! you've just announced to the entire world when your house & business will be empty, and it took me all of about 3 minutes to figure out your addresses, thanks to your business website & the internet! maybe you could leave your key under the mat for them, too! or better yet, just leave the door open!

Congrats! I've always said it's not where you go, but rather, who you go with. Enjoy yourself!

Take sunscreen and cool sunglasses. And if you've never worn a hip pouch, get used to the idea. There a 'must have' for touring around all day.

Have a Corona for me. Buy an outrageous tourist shirt and get a little crazy.

And boiled ice means ice that was boiled before being froze.

Annette,

The thing is, I relocated my business! So I'm no longer at the other location. Kinda hard to find something that isn't there anymore.

I was told not to buy "Chiclets" "The candy" from the kids, because it's laced with drugs.

Sometimes it runs much smoother w/o any customers mucking up the works
...but then it only runs until the money runs out

slickshift,

He's back! I'll let him explain his pro's and con's of the trip!

I can think of other places to go based on what it cost to go there. I would expect the best but it's another "tourist trap", well marketed so everyone goes.

He made it out of there just in time! Emily really messed things up!

Hahahaha!

Well, to put it nicely, it sucked. Well, not totally, but a lot of it did.

What we consider "Air Conditioning" isn't what they consider it as. It was basically "Chilled Humid Air". We needed to have a dehumidifyer put into our room, which we had to dump the bucket of water out each night.

The food wasn't bad, the food presentation was excellent! Along with the customer service. I have never been treated so well at any restuarant in the US.

The beach had a lot of rocks, so it was tough to find a decent place to swim. The scenery, well, that was a highlight!

The Europeans didn't care much for the "No Topless" sign. There were some that were worth looking at and others needed to put their clothing back on.

I will say that if I never have another Pina Colada again, I won't be disappointed. Blah!

It was an all inclusive resort, so it was eat and drink as much as you want.

One highlight is that I won the dancing contest. Yay! Go Me!

It's a nice place to visit for the most part, but I would never want to live there.

We were in the Riveria Maya, which is just south of Cancun.

Oh let me not forget, on our way back, we went to Burger King in the Cancun International Airport. Guess how much 2 egg muffins and a drink cost? $14.00!!!! US Currency I about fell over. A bag of Chex Mix that we would pay about $2.39 at a 7-11 cost $6.00 at the hotel.

I left the day that "Dennis" was entering the Gulf Coast, so no problems getting home.
