On topic "Cozumel for a Day", people who do not stay at AI's are termed "elitist" by a poster. I have stayed at both AI's and not. I prefer the environment and company at the non AI's.
AI's are handy if you want to feed kids or family without worrying about the costs. That is nice.
Why I like non AI's : there are less kids, noise, contrived events, and less people more concerned about the ins and outs of that particular resort rather than experiencing the local flavor and culture.
So if I am an "elitist", so be it. To each his (or her) own.
