Beware: The timeshare people are everywhere. At the airport, in the resorts, in the restaurants and stores, on the beach, and on the streets- you cannot escape them.
Don't think this warning applies to you, because you are too smart to fall for a timeshare scam? That's what I would have thought too, but I was wrong. The fact is that most people who fall for these scams are well-educated and intelligent. Be aware of common scams and your legal rights, before you visit.
Make sure ALL promises are in writing. Also, you have a 5 day right to cancel without penalty. This is Mexican law, and there are NO exceptions, even if you signed a waiver to give up this right.
