      We had a three bedroom condo that included daily maid service. We overlooked the poo and have better than "partial" views of the ocean. The El Taj is right in the middle of the nightlife and just a couple of blocks from 5th Ave.!!!

      A six-thirty start and the hotel packed us a picnic breakfast. The taxi ride to Leon airport was cool and short and we were soon on a commuter service to Mexico City. We can see the city from a long way out as a big smog patch. On landing we find it hot and very smoggy. A two-hour layover and we are on a 737 bound for Cancun which is warm and humid …

There really is no border control whatsoever, apart from when you leave at which point they conveniently appear to collect the 'departure tax'. They don't seem to care who or what enters their country. The American tourist board recently increased security warnings to ...
