Landed in Cancun this morning at 10:30 am and it is HOT!!! I had to wait outside the airport for Lauren, who's flight wasn`t supposed to land until noon. They don't let you wait inside, and there's no screen displaying arrivals, so I sat outside on a sidewalk for a while. There were lots of people coming out, but they were all from other flights from the US. I started to get a little concerned when Lauren hadn't shown up by 1 pm, and no one could tell me if the Delta flight from Atlanta had arrived, but then I saw her and it was all good.
We headed to the airport parking lot and took a bus to downtown Cancun. Cancun is divided into two parts: Çiudad Cancun, or downtown, and the Hotel Zone, which is the classic spring break Cancun. The Hotel Zone is pretty far away from downtown, so we didn't see any of it before we hopped on a bus to Puerto Juarez. From there, it was a half-hour ferry ride to our first stop, Isla Mujeres.
