The Tale Of
The Newsboy

Once upon a time there was a little newsboy who was very, very poor and he only sold old newspapers because he didn't have enough money for new ones.

People didn't by his newspapers because they were all so out of date, and they wanted new newspapers.

So the little newsboy never sold any, and every day he accumulated more and more old newspapers.

What the little newsboy did was put up a paper recycling plant, and he became a millionaire, bought out all the newspaper businesses and the news agencies, prohibited publishing current news, and thus obliged people to read only news of the past.

In the papers on sale today, for example, you'd read that the Zapatistas are about to arrive in Mexico City and that they'll meet with the Villistas there.

You can't quite make out the date, but it seems to either 1914 or 1997.

 

 

Buckle Up!

Mexico now has
a seat-belt law.

GETTING AROUND CANCUN

Cancun City Map Getting around Cancun is not a problem at all. What you need to know is that there is Cancun City, which has a small tourist zone. It is easy to walk around the tourist zone. The main bus station is located there as well as numerous restaurants, clubs, stores and general tourists stuff.

There is no reason for you to go into Cancun City's non-tourist zone. In fact we don't recommend it, primarily because it is a maze of one-way streets and endless sprawl. It is easy to get lost. Best to use a taxi if you need to get to anywhere in the City outside the tourist zone.

Some attractions are located between the city and the tourist zones which require a tour, taxi or car rental to get to.

In the Hotel zone beach strip and lagoon you can walk to many interesting things depending on where you stay. The strip is roughly 22km long and things are spread out all along the strip concentrating at the top northern end.

To get up and down the strip you can take public bus, taxi or rent a car.



Taxi

You can get a taxi cab anywhere in Cancun. You can take a taxi to the airport, but taxis are not allowed to pick up passengers there [there is an airport taxi system]. Cancun Taxi

Taxi rates are set by how many "zones" you travel through to get to your destination. There are no meters in the cabs. This way you can get a price up-front from the driver as to how much the fare will be. Rates are posted in most hotels near the front desk.

NOTE: Taxi rates are more expensive from the front door of your hotel than if you walk to the street and flag down a taxi [hotels get a kick-back].

Car Rental

There are numerous car rental agencies for you to choose from. For more information including links to car rental agency web sites see: Renting A Vehicle

NOTE: It is not a good idea to spend too much time driving around Cancun City outside the tourist zone because city driving the Mexican way may be more than you bargained for and one little ding on the rental vehicle can turn into a major head-ache.

Public Bus Cancun Public Bus

The cheapest way to get around is by public bus. The public bus system operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week everyday of the year.

For more info see: Cancun Bus System

For bus travel outside the hotel and city zones see: Mexican Bus

Walking

The hotel zone is 22 kilometers long and the hotels and malls are spread out along the coast. Depending on where your hotel is you may be within walking distance of any of the "big malls". If you go to the tourist zone of the city, everything there is within walking distance [bus station, banks, restaurants, hotels etc.].

Bicycle

Some hotels rent bikes. You can ride on the sidewalks on Kukulcan Blvd. but we don't recommend riding on the street. We have also never seen "locks" supplied with bike rentals so it is hard to visit a mall without leaving your bike unlocked. Cancun Harley V-Rod

Mopeds

All we can say about renting a moped is that if you do you are risking your life. Those things are death-traps. We have seen the damage done.

Motorcycle

There is an Eagle Riders in Cancun where you can rent a Harley and ride up the coast and hit some pretty secluded beaches. We don't recommend heading into the jungle.

Learn How!

Cancun is a world-class tourist resort destination and a thriving community of 450,000 full-time residents who lead normal, often very traditional lives.

The greatest asset Cancun has is its natural marine playground which sparkles with a warm sun more than 200 days of the year.

Cancun beaches are 14 miles of white-talc sand.

Don't forget that sunlight in the Yucatan is more direct than most are accustomed to. Limit you initial exposure then increase exposure as your vacation progresses.

Cancun resorts have long been a honeymoon destination but have now become a very hot place for weddings.

In Cancun partying takes precedence over just about everything.

There are more than 350 restaurants.

Cancun hotels are excellent, ranging from four and five star to Grand Tourism.
