OMG I stayed at a hostel in Cancun!!!!! At $6 a night I didn't expect tooooo much, but I did expect something....lol. Well I got a room alright...nothing more, nothing less. They funny part was seeing a Marriott check-in sign that hung in the lobby...lol. If I owned the place, I think I would've done the same thing.
Asisde from living on the " other" side, the "what you see on TV" side of Cancun was great. Blue water, white sand, sun , great people etc. I even got a chance to practice speaking spanish. Riding the bus was a nice touch. I like gettin immersed in the culture of places that I visit, therefore, this put me in the "mix".
