Lots of shiny shops and restaurants. Everything looks pretty new. This page of pictures is from the area in Cancun Mexico with the most tourist hotels and resorts. I have a separate page of the Cancun hotels photos. You can see there is a wide sidewalk that goes along both sides of the road. It is not hard to walk, but there is also a bus that circles around the peninsula that winds up in Cancun Centro, at the bus station.

Cancun and Playa del Carmen are areas of Mexico that are busy with lots of activity. If you like vacations - holidays that are more quiet, you might want to look into Akumal or Telum.

These photos were taken in 2008.
