I know… Makes me wish I was there right now!
I loved Cancun the first time I visited, which was back in the late 80s. But I’ve been a few more times since and I dislike it more and more each time. It’s far too touristy for my liking. Playa Mujeres sounds like a great alternative.
Yes, Cherri. Cancun has grown a lot! Try staying in Playa Mujeres next time. I hope you like it better! Thanks for stopping by.
