      I can't view the pics either. But perhaps that is better, so I don't see what the place I chose not to go that everyone loves:-(

Sure, but we weren't and it turned out to be the high point of our trip. There were people at the resort who offered to take us out but we weren't 100% comfortable with them and said no, when what we felt was the right person approached us we said yes. There is no need to leave your resort but if you do just use your own discretion.
        Thanks for the great review, Jamy!!!

        I must add that we have befriended a cab driver in Cancun. We have the best time when we hang with him and his family. We've gone to a "local" softball game, bars where only locals go, secluded little taco stands =) and his sons 5 year old b-day party. I would have to say that those times are very high on my most fav things to do in Mexico. He and his family are actually going to attend our wedding. We are very excited to be able to entertain him as he has done for us on several occasions. Sorry, I just wanted to add to Jamy's "local" adventure!

                    That is too cool that he is coming to your wedding! How special. I so agree with you. While few things beat relaxing at a luxurious resort and doing nothing, it is always a blessing to be able to get out and see the authentic side of wherever you are. Hmmm....when we make it to Cancun can we borrow your friend? LOL
