Why are so many seats vacant in the areana of Korean Olympics
February 17, 2018

Is it because.
There's a lunar New Year's holiday so some families do other trips.

Everyone's here partying in Cancun.
The ticket scalping effect turnout.
They are basking in the sun in Acapulco.
The Koreans like to sleep late so arrive late to the games. When the cameras took photos of the spectators, these lazy Koreans were still in bed.
The people would rather visit the archeological sites in Chichen Itza.
A few Koreans snacked on beans and peanuts in the stands. It's a gas.

What gives with tainted alcohol
December 26, 2017

Some media is making an issue over tainted alcohol.
We dug a little and here's what we found.

Yes there have been instances of such. But not in every bar and hotel in the country.
Investagations by reliable sources and The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel received documented accounts from tourists who were staying at Iberostar Paraiso del Mar, Iberostar Paraiso Maya, Iberostar Grand Hotel Paraiso, Iberostar Cancun, Hard Rock Hotel Cancun, Grand Oasis Cancun, and Secrets Akumal.

So it appears this issue is confined to one or two hotel chains. To be safe, consider avoiding them for now.
Back a few months ago, Mexican authorities seized 10,000 gallons of illegal alcohol after discovering an illicit manufacturer was supplying tourist attractions in Cancun and Playa del Carmen.

Perhaps this is no longer an issue. Tainted booze can cause black-outs and dizzy spells.

Besides avoiding those resorts implicated, a good tip is to get drinks in a bottle with a label you can recognize and trust. Like a Bud in a bottle. Or soda in a bottle.
If you order a mixed drink, ask the waiter to pour himself some and try it. See what happens. Could very well be this is history now.

Best travel fabrics
September 22, 2017

You want to arrive at your Cancun hotel looking stylish and polished; not an easy task when all you’ve brought are easily wrinkled clothes..
Who has time for steaming, ironing, or dry-cleaning especially here where dry cleaners may not be at par, when you have places to go and people to see? Luckily, the solution is simple.

Cotton, rayon, and silk tend to wrinkle like old Rip Van Winkle.

Lyocell is a semi-synthetic form of rayon and resists wrinkling.
sign up for our newsletter

Polyester won't wrinkle.
Cashmire is strong and warm yet lightweight and soft. If it appears wrinkly when taken out of your suitcase, just hang it or lay it flat for a bit. The creases should go away.
Cashmere is a hair acquired from goats,
Do knit versus woven.
If traveling with two teens with wrinkle free jeans you all can book here Aloft Cancun where two 17 year olds stay free with you in the same room with two queen beds.
Wool and polyester combine to make one adorable miniskirt.
Also consider spandex.

Airline news

Myths about flying
August 24, 2017

myth one: Pilots Make Tons of Money
Pilots' salaries have declined 42 percent in the past three decades.

Another myth is it costs top dollar to book a Five Star beachfront hotel in Cancun. False! Hotel Krystal in the heart of the hotel zone party center.

Myth two: Flight Attendants same as Sky Waitresses or Waiters
Imagine having to deal with the public every day after a round of drinks. Set to the soundtrack of screaming babies and old foggies bellowing indignantly.
Worse having to smile the whole time even at them old geezers, because, you're the face of the company.
Now imagine having to selflessly leap to the aid of said unbearable members of the public should anything go wrong. Like that whinning infant throwing up on the geezer.
Now imagine being exactly as scared of disaster as they are but exercise self control.
being responsible for everyone's safety at the same time.
One tips the waitress what 20%.
At least be nice to the stewardesses.
Especially if she's cute.

Myth three: flying is expensive.
The prices for airline tickets have absolutely plummeted since 1980
Yes you can take a bus instead of flying, and when you arrive after 16 long bus-hours, you'll wish you had just shelled out for that two-hour flight so as not to have squandered precious hours of your life.
If you arrived late for your miraculous $30 flight you will loudly blame everyone except yourself because you are never wrong.

Myth four: flying is dangerous:
Tens of thousands of people die every year in car accidents in the U.S., and several thousand pedestrians with them. The only reason air travel seems dangerous is because you hear about literally every single incident. Imagine the papers if they reported on every single incident involving cars.
One is 65 times more likely to die in a car than in a plane according to statitics.

Running with the bulls Spain
July 7, 2017

Better to do Mexico than Spain.
This is no bull.
Two Americans and one Spaniard were gored Friday while running with bulls during the annual San Fermin festival in Spain, and a few stepped in it.
A Spanish man sustained serious head injuries after he was gored and tossed by a bull.
The American men sustained more minor injuries and had to clean their shoes. A 35-year-old American was gored in the abdomen and a 29-year-old in the scrotum.
Other runners were saying next year in Mexico.
The running of the bulls is part of the nine-day festival for fools.
More than a million dumb tourists visit Pamplona to see the bull runs, or or bulls with diarrhea. They are a big part of summer festivals in Spain..

Taking a photo from the plane simple advice
June 16, 2017

You see a great shot from your seat.
Make sure to get a window seat.
This way you don't lean over the guy to your right or left as the case may be to get up to the window.
And avoid a seat over the wings of the aircraft.
Or where you're blocked by the intake jets.
Look for a good geometric design down below.

Then use a good photo editor as there are many on Android.
Speaking of Android. Our app About CancunSteve is FREE on Google Play. Look for it. Download it.

Ethics of travel photos pros and cons of asking permission first
March 22, 2017

You see a great shot.
Man with 80 pounds of sticks on his shoulders going by.
Should you just shoot the photo of him with his sombrero? Or ask permission first.
Ask permission and get that phony smile and him flashing the V sign with his free hand.
Making for a stereotype trite photo
Here is what will happen when asking for permission to take photos: all your subjects will be posing in the most boring way or giving you a V finger sign. Now isn’t it a stereotype?
Best to create an interaction, for the respect of the person you are photographing but also to improve understanding of the situation and composition.
But to me, this will happen most of the time after the photo has been taken: showing my subject their photo, telling them how beautiful they are, having a good laugh, etc. And this is often the best part of being a photographer, this contact and interaction you can create with the locals by understanding the way they live and their cultural expectations.
Or ask hey looke here man what ya doin with all them sticks?

new Hyatt Ziva comming to Cancun
October 12, 2015

For those comming to Cancun for a long time you'll all remember the Camino Real in the heart of Punta Cancun where all that great snorkeling was. And is.
Then this morphed into Dreams. The dream is over.
The location is now to become the new Hyatt Ziva managed by Playa Resorts which you will remember is the former Real Resorts.
Yes once the Hyatt Ziva opens expect something special. A special place for special people.
The place is getting a real work-over.
Went last night for a cocktail and saw.
Now while we're all waiting for the Hyatt Ziva to open up we can still book a suite in the Five Star Gran Caribe Real also managed by Playa Resorts and dig this:

Traveling with friends
October 30, 2013

This pleases all choose all-inclusive or bed and breakfast in Cancun
Before departing get together and speak about:
Making sure everyone is on the same page concerning money (how much to spend once there).
And tastes. A lot of stress can happen if one wants to just sit at the pool sipping margeritas and their friends are insisting hey come with us out to the archeological zone
This is your holiday time to party, not the time to have a dispute.

Flight advice
September 25, 2013

Be sure to pre-plan your trip if an airport is involved in your travels.
Just reaching the airport can be difficult to do quickly, especially if you are traveling through a major city during rush hour.
Pack your bags, including your carry-on, before you go to bed. To reduce your pre-flight anxiety, prepare for your trip well in advance. You want to do everything possible to avoid arriving late for your flight.
Which includes yelling at the cab driver to 'move it'.
One important thing to keep in your wallet is a color photograph of your child.
Beats putting it on a leash or in a cage.
This can come in handy if it gets lost. Losing a child is traumatic for almost any sober parent. However, in case it happens, you should be prepared. Being able to show a photo might make a critical difference in the time it takes to locate your child should he or she get lost.
Especially if the child is strange looking with a big head and little body or something.

About CancunSteve for service
April 29, 2013

Let me tell you a CancunSteve story from about 15 years ago.
When the new moon was holding in her arms the waning moon and Capricorn was in Asparagus.
Ron Goodger booked a beachfront condo with us in Cancun. Then when he returned home he discovered the agency who rented him his car overbilled his card hundreds of dollars.
CancunSteve was not involved in the car rental. But poor Ron didn't know who to turn to. We could have said by all rights look you did not rent the car from us. we were not involved. not our problem As any other agency would have done be it Travelitis, Cold-wire, or rottenApples.
But that's not what CancunSteve did. No. We got Ron's money refunded. Then CancunSteve investigated who was the employee who put through the bogus charge on Ron's card and insured that theif was fired from that agency.
Another CancunSteve true story.
Told in the first person. We rented our vehicle through CancunSteve. When we were at our rental at Solomon Bay, an hour and a half from Cancun we lost our car key. My macho husband tried to put his BIG key into that small gentle lock (keyhole) and discovered he had no key.
The rental company through CancunSteve was easily contacted and came immediatly with the intention of charging us only gas and key cost.
When my husband gave him a generous tip he returned to our house thinking we had overpayed him and he owed us change
Honest. Innocent. You can trust CancunSteve good people.
Another in the first person. What does Doug Miller say about CancunSteve.
CancunSteve really hooked us up nicely with our accomodations, everything was taken care of for us in advance. Thanks Steve we really look forward to doing it again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mexico does in more criminals in a border town near Texas
October 9, 2012

Mexican marines gunned down of one of Mexico’s most feared drug lords outside a baseball game in a state on the Texas border.
Zetas leader Heriberto Lazcano
The Mexican navy said the fingerprints of one man matched the records of Lazcano.
Most recently, the cartel was linked to the assassination of the nephew of the governor of Coahuila last week, a slaying that prompted the federal government to dispatch additional troops, federal police, Porfirrio and criminal investigators to the state.
Mexican authorities have announced a string of arrests of high-profile Zetas figures in recent months. Such captures often lead authorities to higher-ranking figures.
Lazcano, who is also known as “El Verdugo” (the Executioner), is suspected in hundreds of killings
The United States has offered a $5 million reward and Mexico an additional $2.3 million for information leading to Lazcano’s arrest.
Rosita offered 2 pesos.

Progress with Sinaloa Cartel
Nov 30 2011

US authorities announced this week the dismantlement of a massive drug-smuggling operation in Arizona, believed to have generated $2 billion in proceeds over five years. The 76 suspects arrested in the 17-month probe, dubbed Operation Pipeline Express, are allegedly connected to Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel, the most powerful drug-trafficking organization operating in Mexico – and, some say, in the Western Hemisphere. Today we have dealt a significant blow to a Mexican criminal enterprise... Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne said in the statement.
The Calderón administration has made progress in arresting and capturing top drug-trafficking suspects including Sinaloa No. 3 Ignacio Coronel Villareal.

Suspects arrested in casino tragedy in Monterrey
June 20 2011

Police have arrested five men they say were responsible for the arson attack at the Casino Royale in Monterrey that left 52 dead in one of the worst mass killings of ordinary Mexicans in the five-year-old campaign against organized crime.
The governor of the northern state of Nuevo Leon, where the firebombing occurred, said Monday that the five suspects said they were members of the Zetas, one of the most anti-social drug-smuggling and criminal gangs in Mexico.
The gang is a major player in human trafficking, kidnapping, DVD piracy and extortion rackets and stealing hub caps off of parked cars.
Calderon said this was an 'act of terrorism'.
At least it didn't take many years to locate the perpetrators as in other known terrorist acts in other countries. Gov. Rodrigo Medina said all the suspects confessed to participating in the casino attack, as planners, perpetrators, lookouts or drivers.
Otherwise if they didn't confess, they would have been condemned to be locked up in a classroom with Elba Esther Gordillo for a full semester.

Apr 17 2010

On the 2nd of April 2010 the Policia Municipal Preventiva did their job and brought two criminals to justice.
However once in Cancun they were brought before the Ministerio Publico Federal in Cancun for possesion of drugs.

On April 6th they were given light sentences. These known criminals with records of extorsion are now on light sentences thanks to these kind Cancun judges. A sympathetic judge shown below:

Is Mexico safe
Jan 25 2010

Question: We were curious about all the violence we have been hearing about in Mexico and safety for tourists. We were planning to book an Isla Mujeres hotel for a trip this summer through you but have heard it might not be safe, especially on the drive from the airport to the ferry.
Our parents booked with you many times in the past.
Our reply: the press is exagerated. I live here. with my wife. so called violence in Mexico is mainly on the boarder with Texas and Arizona and even then less than the average american city.
nothing compares with the oaklahoma bomber or what you read in the national inquire about this crazy chicago man chopping up his neighbor with a cleaver and stuffing it in an abandoned fridge.
isla mujeres and cancun are heaven on earth and peaceful I say.
According to the FBI, Los Angeles California had 689 violet crimes in 2008. 10 being homocide.
According to leading sources: Cancun is amongst the safest places to travel in Mexico and is known throughout Mexico for its low crime rate. Other than the normal petty thievery frequent in all tourist destinations, major crime involving tourists in the tourists zones is almost non existent.
The homicide rate in Cancun is 4.7 per million in 2009. In 2008 Los Angeles had more than double the homocides of Cancun in 2009.
And Larry says: The per capita murder rate in Puerto Rico is 5 times that of the United States. I’m from the U.S.; I lived in Puerto Rico for 10 years until 2005.
Here in Cancun you can be on a lovely beach in a safe resort at just 45usd per person per night beachfront all-inclusive. Try that in LA. Or anywhere else. vist this Cancun beachfront hotel now

And did you know in 1916, 198 homicides were recorded in Chicago. At the time Chicago's population was that of Cancun's today in 2010. But Chicago's homocide rate was 47 times that of present-day Cancun's nearly a hundred year's ago.

In El Salvador there were 580 homocides per million back in 2006.
So if someone tells you Cancun isn't safe ask them where is? The south pole?
If you're thinking of Iceland, baby, think again. Back in 2008 this frozen country to the north had 14,726 crimes. And its' population is less than 1/3 of a million.

An issue effecting us all
Aug 11 2008

At this time the USA is importing near 70% of its' oil consumption.
It just can't afford to keep doing that. Can you count? That's trillions of dollars over the coming years.
It may seem this does not relate to Mexico but remember burning carbon based fuels like oil adds to global warming effecting all of us regardless if you live in Teaneck New Jersey or here in Mexico.
Alternative energy is the ticket to be sure!
We provide this link for your consideration and to pressure your politicians.
Pickens Plan. The use of wind power as renewal energy as presented in this plan is interesting albeit, it must be said:
Who will provide all the rights to millions of acres for the wind farms to be constructed. And there's still the problem of wind which is not reliable. It doesn't always blow as some months are not windy.
As my main man said the answer my friend is blowing in the wind

Don't buy a used car from this man!
January 12, 2007

It is a matter of public record that Michael E. Kelly has been and is currently under investigation for fraud, violation of securities laws and other questionable activities related to investment scams in a number of States in the United States. International investigations are also underway at this time.
Michael Eugene Kelly (operating time share in Mexico) is known to be involved in the sales of illegal, unregistered securities investments.
So good people think twice before buying a used car, the Brooklyn Bridge, time share, the Yucatan nine month note, or any investments in Yucatan Resorts from this man or his boiler-room sales staff.

January 15, 2005
At the III Foro Nacional de Turismo, Rafael Lang director general of the Puerto Cancun Project indicated the basic infrastructure (roads; water; electric; drainage) for that part of the project corresponding to the hotel zone of Puerto Cancun should be completed in June of this year (2005).
Puerto Cancun in its entirety when complete will have living areas; a hotel zone; marinas; golf course; commerical areas for shopping.
This project will have a strong social impact generating more than 10,000 jobs directly and 25,000 indirectly.
It is hoped the 18 hole golf course will be completed in 2006.
The golf course will be of professional category of 75 hectares bordering on the ocean.
The marina will have a capacity for more than 330 vessels.
Rafael Lang indicated it will take 10 years to complete all the buildings in Puerto Cancun.

Jan 24, 2005
Quintana Roo is a model of what turism can do for a state. After the Mexican revolution the Mayans lived almost as slaves working on the haciendas. Today there are more oportunities of employment for everyone in areas directly or indirectly related to turism.

Tourism is the third most important industry in Mexico.

The friendliness of the Mexican people encourage tourism.

After just 34 years of existance Cancun has a population in size of Merida, a city of hundreds of years in age.

Some of the lobster caught in the waters of Isla Mujeres is exported to the USA.

Quintana Roo now has the highest level of immigration in Mexico.

Cruise ships contribute little to the city hosting them, rather they take advantage of existing infrastructures and natural surroundings.
