rubymurray and kalik, I am supposed to be going to Moon Palace on Nov. 8th. I still cannot get onto the palaceresorts.com webpage. You say you found out that the hotel is up and running from the webpage? I don't know how it could be up and running if all the phones are still down. Have you talked to anyone there? We figured that we'd have to reschedule. Please let me know anything you know about the moon palace.

Rubymurray,
I don't know what my deal is, but I can't seem to find that page... Could you send me a link to it? I don't know if links work over the forum, but my email address is [email protected] I was also wondering if you could let me know what your travel agent says when you talk to him/her today! We booked through the hotel and we haven't been able to get a hold of anyone. We are starting to get really worried because our date is coming up fast. Thank-You so much for your help!

Hi all. Just read an article on USA Today that said the beach is gone. But I can't find more detail - is the entire strip of beach gone?

My husband and I are reverting to our travel personalities. I'm researching, and he's saying "everything will be fine". Tourism is Cancun's major industry. Yeah, I know that, but how are they going to get a beach (by Feb.?)

Rubymurray and Kalik,
The information you are looking at is not from hurricane Wilma, IT is the damage report from hurricane Emily back in July. I have heard that Moon Palace will not be expected to open until the first week of February, and even that is tentative. I heard this information from someone who just spoke to a palace sales rep.

I wonder how Tulum fared - such a treasure -

Also, I am trying to find a long-term rental on the Central Plateau of Mexico and seem to only come up with condo's - any ideas?

Mikemo - isn't that one of your areas?

Thanks for any help on this -

Talum is further south and faired a lot better than Cancun and the Riviera Maya.

To all: I just got through to Palace Resorts toll free#. They said that they just open there lines two hours ago and they too have not been informed on the damage done to Moon Palace.They said to call back Monday afternoon.I feel bad b/c I think she thought that I was going to give her a hard time. I know it is not her fault. All you can do is understand. She sounded really sad too.

karens: the entire stretch of beach isn't gone -- I see some in front of the Hilton in internet pics I've found, but it does look like a great deal of it is gone, with the ocean coming right up to the sea wall in hotels at the top of the "7". I can find no pictures of the beach in front of my favorite hotel, the JW Marriott.
It is so incredibly sad. Cancun plans to spend $20 million to rebuild the beaches, but in some spots it looks like an impossible task. .
