1. Re: cancun attraction

YOu may want to post on the Cancun forum. Mexico City is a two hour flight from Cancun.

The bus in Cancun is very efficient and full of tourists and runs the entire hotel zone basically. It is cheap, air conditioned and efficient.

Assuming your hotel is on the ocean, you will take the bus on the same side of the street of your hotel to go shopping in the tourist areas of the hotel zone. Downtown Cancun is not that nice and not worth visiting unless you are catcing the ferry to Isla Mujerees or elsewhere.

When you arrive at the airport, you will go along a strip of land with the ocen on one side and lagoon on the other and hotels lined up all along the ocean. Across from the Hilton, there is an interesting pyramid site that kids love as it is full of iguanas. Otherwise, Cancun is about beach, sun, pool, shopping and eating.

South of Cancun is the Riviera Maya with the Tulum pyramid ruins, Xcaret water park, cenotes, a nature preserve etc., etc.
