The incredible growth of Cancun, Mexico's leading tourist resort Richard Rhoda and Tony Burton

Relax in a beach chair in the shade of a thatch-roofed palapa and enjoy Cancun's exceptional beaches.
Mexico’s mass tourism industry in the past forty years has been dominated by large-scale, purpose-built developments partially funded by federal funds. In 1967, responding to bullish predictions of US demand for beach vacations, Mexico’s central bank identified the five best places for completely new, purpose-built tourist resorts. Top of the list, as part of a 30-year plan, was the uninhabited barrier island now known as Cancún. read more

Busing From Cancun to Chichen Itza Discussion Thread Forum

I was wondering what type of bus service there is between Cancun and Chichen Itza, and if that service accomodates luggage. I'm thinking that I can possibly catch the tour bus from Chichen Itza to Club Oasis Akumal. Has anyone done this before? I would like to avoid renting a car. Also, I know there are several nice hotels at Chichen Itza, any suggestions? read more

Swimming with whale sharks in Cancun: An underwater safari Pamela Dittmer McKuen

Diving with Whale Shark
About 25 miles off Cancun's northeastern coast, past Isla Mujeres and far into the Caribbean waters, some of the largest known sea creatures loll their summers away. They are whale sharks, a gray-and-white spotted fish that can measure up to 40 feet long and weigh more than 15 tons. That's bigger than many dinosaurs.

On this particular late August morning, I would be hanging out with them for a while. Hopefully, they'd already eaten breakfast. read more

Atticus Reviewed by Allan Cogan

Atticus Cody is a 67 year old Colorado rancher. He’s a very successful straight-shooting kind of guy. He has a son, Scott, who is a painter, evidently talented. He has gone to Mexico and is out of touch with his father. Atticus cares: Scott doesn’t seem to be concerned. When the story opens, Atticus has learned about Scott’s death, by suicide, in a place called Resurrección, near Cancun. Atticus goes to Resurrección to pick up his son’s body and return it to Colorado. There he meets up with the cast of characters who knew Scott, most of whom are, at best, hippies and bohemians, at worst, drifters and fugitives. read more
