Bienvenido a Cancun

Interesting facts about Cancun : 1. You can stop a moving taxi/collectivo/cab etc. just by waving a hand. :D 2. People are frank, open and ready to help ,when asked for directions. So don't hesitate to ask . 3. Timed tours are not that punctual and timed check-ins too. It all depends on the mood of the person. ;) 4. The restaurants keep running until their last customer and not until the time of closing. 5. Booking a taxi is much cheaper in cost and time than renting a car. :D 6. You get a server, a cleaner in every type of restaurant. Your luggage is escorted to your checked-in room by a porter or a staff person.
