Go farther south. PDC has the allure but is growing fast. Won't be long before Belize will be the place to go if it isn't already.

For a cheap, short vacation with beautiful beaches it's a good choice. If I want more luxury and culture then I go somewhere else. I still like Cancun and I've never encounterd any rudeness. The people are always very sweet and welcoming to me.

exactly why the areas south of Cancun are booming. It's become overcrowded, overpriced. over developed.
