Agreed a most enjoyable "day" trip but the downside is 1 less day at TTR all inclusive!
There's not so much close enough to walk to as I recall. There was a Playboy Club casino which was close enough to walk to, but I think it closed. It was never very busy anyway. Some folks grab the bus to head intot he party zone/club zone, but it doesn't run late. Cabs are way more convenient but you pay fo rit. Best way is to get a small group, jam yourselves into a cab and split the $15 between 4 to 6 people and head for party zone.
Stacia & I have a loose tradition of going to the Hooters in Cancun after we've been at TTR eating TTR food for 3 to 5 days. We've done it the past 12 trips. Go get some wings, feel like you're at home for a moment, then go outside and realize you're still in Cancun and walk over to Senor Frog's, or Carlos & Charlies.... etc. etc. etc.
Bringing this back- we want to go into Cancun one day- should we Uber or taxi?
When you say into Cancun...where is it you wanna go?
Cuz Bus is very easy to use, depends where you are going.
We used the bus last time. Very easy and convenient.
Starbucks is across the street. We have to have good morning coffee but bring filters. a sort sort cab ride away is Malecon America. Good place to go to walk and detox fir a few hours .
Uber doesn't operate in Cancun any more
We visited the island for the 1st time last year. Loved it! Will definitely go back. Try out "The Soggy Peso". Great little place.
@Steve.... Boy Uber didn't last long!
Lack of biz/interest the reason?
Plenty of interest, too much interest. Taxi drivers got pissed off that people preferred the cheaper, more efficient, more polite service that Uber offered where they could take a simple journey without being offered weed, hookers or risk being ripped off, and where the car had seat belts that actually function. Corrupt taxi drivers support the election of corrupt politicians and were supported back.
Taxi drivers started attacking Uber drivers and their vehicles. While in the process of attacking one such Uber driver, a taxi guy was half way in the highway on a busy road, got hit by a passing truck and killed. Taxi drivers claimed the Uber driver killed him and vowed to kill 10 Uber drivers as revenge. Uber suspended operations shortly after.
Just another day in Mexico. When it comes to business it's the wild wild west. Tourists are not at risk at all though.
Interesting story Mate...thanks
My agreement rating is aimed at your last sentence....accompanied with a knowing nod.
We have been to Cancun 9 times and always used the buses because they constantly pass by and are cheap. Taxis will charge you 3-5x more and they always want to offer you hookers...lol. I’d say you are much safer on the buses. If you are unfamiliar with Cancun, you can easily tell the bus driver your destination and he will Take you to the nearest bus stop to your destination. The buses run all night long so you can go to the clubs at night and still get back to TTR late for only $1.
If you have time and want a grab some good food, check out Surfin’ Burrito or Fish Fritanga.
We've never seen a vacation to TTR as a "cultural" trip... longest absence from hotel so far (apart from a Boobs cruise) was a trip to Hooters to watch the soccer !!. TTR is unique, never enough time to catch up with friends and enjoy all the fun, if you need to escape or see something else....see Steve and take a Boobs Cruise....... (just our suggestion LOL)
We have two traditions, spend an afternoon on Isla driving a golf cart and bar hopping, lots of ExPat and very entertaining, and diner at Peters. we have not had issues with cab drivers The TTR staff has always found us a good cab. thus, tip the doormem
Do you mean just past the OXXO?
If you are interested in going to the clubs, there is a bus that takes a group from TTR to one of the clubs every night. Coco Bongo, IMO, is the coolest. I'd also give a vote for spending a day on Isla Mujeres. It's really awesome there!
I don't think they do that anymore.
Yes, that is the place, I do have to say, we did go there this past Halloween and they somewhat "Upgraded" the establishment. I'm sure this had to do with all the construction and upgrades to the area. The food was still good but it seems like they are now catering to the tourist and not the locals as they have a regular menu and regular prices. The meal we used to get for about $4 was now about $15.
Oh that stinks! I was looking forward to having some "real" Mexican food there in 2 weeks.
You are right
Currently they are not promoting any of the clubs
Evrrsince re-opening, (we have done 4 trips since August) there has been NO marketing for any of the clubs by the Ents staff.
