Problems/Solutions

http://www.tripadvisor.com/Travel-g150807-s206/Cancun:Mexico:Health.And.Safety.html

Though surfing looks like fun, ask Cancun locals where good surfing spots are. Some parts of the sea are filled with rocky courses and are dangerous. Asking locals will solve this problem and you will remain safe. Also, be careful of fake silver sellers. Make sure the silver is properly stamped, or it could be fake silver.

Conclusion/Reflection

I decided to visit Cancun, Mexico because of the cool wildlife and beautiful tropical vibe. I chose Mexico because I love to be outside and more importantly, swim. I thought about going to Australia but the resorts without activities were making me think twice. I wanted a place with fun near or in the hotel. I wanted a wild but peaceful place, and Mexico's beautiful culture, land, and heritage seemed to be the right way to go.

About the Traveler - Elyea Rose

I've been out of the USA 2 times, and that was to travel to Mexico. I have traveled to Mexico one time, but not to the city of Cancun. I was adopted outside of the US in Guatemala. Guatemala is a country near Mexico. In addition to hoping to travel to Mexico one day, I want to travel to Hawaii, Guatemala, and Australia.
