Default Cancun Trip???

This will be VERY difficult. Cancun is extremely expensive. You can get very reasonably priced tickets on the new Mexican airline VivaAerobus and could like find a place to stay for around $150 per night in the Hotel Zone *Zona Hotelera* but food and drinks are outrageous.

We just got back on May 26th and I was IN SHOCK at how much things cost in Mexico. You really want to stay in the Hotel Zone so that you are near the beach and the beach is gorgeous, but everything is so commerical and tourist there.

To give you an idea, taxi to anywhere even a block away $10; 30 minutes on jet ski $60; snorkel trip and wave runner through mangroves $135 per person.

We spent about $400 on tickets (for 2 Aerobus is CHEAP), stayed in a condo with 4 friends - $100 per night and spent about $1700 while we were there and this was not extravagant.

Have fun and stay away from the $10 margaritas!!!

Sure it's possible
1.go to it compares prices from all airlines...and then while you're there try to see if you can get a packet with hotel and eeverything before you actually go to Mexico and you;re stuck with no money...LOL!!so plan first that..

2.If a hotel is more than $80 pero night then it's expensive that's because it;s a TOURIST ZONE they over do it... so you might want to search a nearby city, colony near Cancun... sometimes when you get there.. it's actually cheaper.. there's big manssions you can rent with other families..

3. go to the stands and eat some tacos or to the marisco(seafood) stands more toward the center of the city dont eat near the beach .. its more expensive..

4..take sun block

5.pepto bismol incase you eat something different..seriously im mexican but eveytime I go I get sick.. food is different over there the put natural ingedients 100%healthy.. but i guess our bodies are used to different things.. yeah make more out of your mexican money... make sure you dont spend dollas$$ in public places..cause they;ll give you 10 pesos worth ea dollar first exchange the money at a bank or a booth and you'll get $12 per dollar.. or so..
