Cancun Area News 'N Stuff

1.- Anybody else notice that it now says "Ask a Question" instead of Post new topic?"

2.- I wonder what Visa pays for that intrusive ad.

3.- Seem American Airlines is joining in the fray to get Mexicana Airlines off the ground again. Finally! A company with money!

4.- Marines made a sweep through Market 28 yesterday. No arrests, Just scaring the local ne'er-do-wells who offer illegal substances in that area. Don't be surprised to see soldiers and sailors with AK-47's sometimes. Just keeping a high profile to keep the nasties away. Like having an ADT sign on your house.

5. Been cool at night with hot, sunny and generally windy days. Doesn't seem to be any rain in the near future. Already a couple of small forest fires in Mahahual and areas far from Cancun.

6.- A Marriott and a Westin W hotel planed for the Riviera Maya--in the area before you get to Playa.

7.- Occupancy in the low 50's now. Ya'll come back! Ya hear?

and Mijares May 12 http://mijarescancun.com/mijares/info.html

American Airlines has money?? Better tell their creditors :)) They lost 471 million last year and 1.5 billion the year before.

JiminCancun, thanks for posting these informative updates, a courtesy bump to you mi amigo...

@ SteveMex, you can thank the American taxpayer, or rather congress, for repeatedly bailing out airlines after they make bad business decisions... I can name TOO many instances when this has happened, please don't get me started, it makes me very upset!

Also noticed the "Ask a Question" change in the format and apparently in the immediate future our friends, and I use that word loosely, from Visa are here to stay for a while with the potential of VISA Vacation Experts joining the boards, though I haven't seen them over here yet to my knowledge. I'm presuming they'll have some type of VISA screen name designation and not be assisting on the boards anonymously.

Also, there's talk of a possible new "Dragon Mart" to be built near the Cancun Messe with a future influx of Chinese Nationals to work there with talk of both the pros and cons of a developing Chinatown in the region when the Chinese business people follow up by bringing their families to the region.

Then again a few years back Disneyworld was coming, so who knows. ;-)

Yes, Dragon Mart is a definite go. It is being built by the Chinese government to use as a base to sell and promote Chines products and services throughout Mexico. From the looks of the drawings, it is going to be a huge complex. It is to be built close to the Cancunmesse convention center and expo facilites.

I'm sure that hoteliers are salivating over Cancun being over run by Chinese tourists! Do they tip?
