Came down last year with wife, now bringing a 14 and 11 year along. Got a direct flight out of O'hare and will be staying at Mayan Palace mid March. Thanks for all the information on this board, very helpful. 5th year in a row heading to Mexico. 2 Cozumel, 1 Mazatlan, and now here for the second year. You guys are right, this place is by far the better vacation spot for us.
