Went to Cancun, actually Playa Del Carmen, from EWR.
TSA 15 minute wait. Everyone was pleasant and efficient.
Mexican Immigration 5 minute wait. Everyone was pleasant and efficient.
Coming home, ditto. Couldn’t have been better.
However the private free market screwed up royally.
Have Lomas Travel for the transfer from Cancun to the hotel. Waited in the sun 90 minutes while they fumbled and bumbled to arrange a ride. Argh!
Arrives at the Hotel (Sandos Playa something). Waited 30 minutes to check in. I was next in line the whole time. There were three clerks checking in: one couple, one trio, and one quartet. In that 30 minutes, the mob gathered. There was no line aka queue. No one much gave a <synonym for excrement>. Argh!
I have some other rants about the hotel — like they don’t give you a map of the property — or explain that the internal shuttle stops running at 11PM and it’s a big place — the room arragnements for the group were screwed up for everyone . But those were minor in comparison.
