I vote no, don't cancel. If "Ernesto" even becomes a hurricane, it will onlly be a cat 1. It will be over by the 7th anyway. There probably won't be any damage but, if there is, not to worry. The people of Mexico really know how to put things back together very quicklly. I have always respected that about them. We could learn so much from them a littlle north. Go, and have a great time! If anything does happen, your resort and your travel insurance will take care of you. If you end up with a bit more "room time" than you planned, well.....I am sure you will find something to do..... lol

Airlines will not fly into a hurricane so if it is still a storm, your flight will be delayed

As this is prime hurricane season, your travel agent should have provided you this info as well!!

Consult your airline. They may allow a reschedule but if you delay a few days do it as soon as they allow it at no cost.

The hurricane blows through and the next day it is beautiful and business as usual. They are amazing at cleanup and you would never know it ever happened.

It's not a hurricane, not expected to be one until it long passes, it's a tropical storm. Look at the map on Wunderground wunderground.com/tropical/…at201205.html and PDC might not even see any showers.

As evidence of why we don't start sweating or discounting storms until they are 48 hours or so out, it appears that Ernesto has picked up a little strength (as these storms are apt to do, once they hit the Caribe). When a storm has more oomph, it tends to head on a more northern path. I expect we will be in the cone again at the 5PM advisory, but it still looks to be southern Q. Roo that will be in the center of the cone. About now is the time to pay more attention. Chances are still high that we will not see more than rain, but it is always a good idea to stay advised.
