Yes to Mexico. NO to Cancun

On the way to Cancun with a plane full of graduating high school seniors, we felt as out of place as Yanni fans at a Limp Bizkit concert. Fortunately our final destination was not one of the mega-resorts in Cancun where the high schoolers were going. Where we were headed there are no laser lighted nightclubs, no glass and marble shopping malls, no beach activity directors, and no beer drinking contests. In fact, there is no electricity, no air conditioning, no phones or television, and no paved roads. But what you will find here are romantic Maya style casitas with palm thatched roofs set right at the water’s edge, miles of pristine beach, and an exotic mixture of nature, history, and culture.
