Cancun April 16th

This is the last day we are in Cancun. It was a sad day so we didn't take too many pictures.Jenna on the beach one last time.
Nate has his carry-on and ready to go.
Jason and I one last time.
And the two of them together.

I should add that on my previous post I said that we took a cab to and from Market 28. Not once in that whole time did I feel unsafe. I wondered about it before we left but there were several other families headed in the same direction and several other families had went there the day before so I felt safe enough. Upon arriving there we were treated very kindly and the cab driver showed us the way to the BEST store per his recommendations. All of the vendors spoke a lot of English and we had no problems conversing with any of them, including the little girl. On the way back to the hotel we saw some police/military people with their big huge machine guns, etc and asked about them. He said that they came when the gangs had started and he said that they have put a stop to it. That was about 9 months ago but he says that they have no problems at all now. So needless to say I felt safe going there, safe at all times. The only time we were treated unkindly was at the airport and it was Jason. He went into the bathroom and a man handed him a towel and requested a dollar. haha other than that they went out of their way to make sure we were happy. After every time that you said thank you, they always responded with "My pleasure" Our maid was even pleasant. The service there (not only at our motel but on the tours and just generally out, on the boat, snorkeling, scuba diving) every one went above and beyond what Americans would do who would be working in that same position. We will definitely be going back to Mexico for another vacation. So worth it!
