Scam & Fraud in Cancun / Mexico = Watch Out For Mayan Palace!!

Jump to last reply

If you're going to Mexico, esp. Cancun, and it's your 1st time there, please watch out for anything that has to do with Mayan Palace!

Who & When & Where should you be alert? As soon as you arrived at the airport! This includs people who work at the airpot. In Mexico's tourist industry, everything is about commisions, so don't think you don't need to read this simply b/c you assume Mayan Palace is a hotel and it can't do you harm in any ways! It's not a hotel!

To find out more about Mayan Palace from people who got scammed by them, please go to below link:

There are other websites besides this one, just go to www.google.com and type in "Mayan Escape" for more info.

For people who think they've already got scammed, go to this website:

I hope this will help. Also, anyone who has any additional (good or bad) info on Mayan Palace or Mayan Escape, or their Great vactions club program pls email me or leave your messages here, thank you!

I wish you all have a safe & fun trip to Mexico! :-)


P.S: if you'd like to know how I was contacted by the people at the airport, type "day trips from Cancun?" in search engine to find my original message.
