We might want to consider doing our dirty laundry in a different venue. It can have a negative impact on an otherwise positive experience, as seen below.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
San Pedro Daily

Having just returned from San Pedro, I would like to comment on our experience there. Before we arrived, we had concerns over the road situation. Yes, there is a problem with pot holes but that shouldn't keep anyone from coming. In fact, the ride from the airport to our hotel was an experience to remember - joyfully. And the people were so friendly that twice while walking we were offered a ride past the wettest portions of the road. We saw no crime, no spitting (as someone commented), no agressive venders and amazingly no auto/cart/bicycle accidents. What a friendly place where passing strangers, old and young alike, say hello or good morning to you. We enjoyed the water and sealife, the restaurants and bars, the warm weather even when it rains, and the friends we made there. Overall, we had an excellent experience and plan to return soon.

What does this article have to do with airing "dirty laundry"?

I like this type of dirty laundry. It is refreshing to have some positive comments.

Does this letter remind anybody of the reasons why they come to the island???

You miss my point.Ashley and Jeri, read all the negatives from this forum and came anyway. After arriving they saw none of the negatives discussed. Their ONLY negative impression of San Pedro was from this forum.

I really enjoyed Playa del Carmen, for a weekend. I'm sure if I lived there it would be different. The charm of a new experience can wear thin. Great to hear a positive experience as with most of our visitors. On the other hand, we live here and while a week of potholes is no major issue for a visitor, it is a serious concern for those who live and work here.

Some folks look at mud puddles like old people do. Others, the kind of people you will probably find enjoying SP look at mud puddles like kids do. smile


Been there, done that, the washing machine ate the T-shirt

SIN, I believe that's exactly the point I made when all this road discussion began. I'm all for improving the roads, for the health and safety of the residents. But I still have a very hard time believing the failure to do so will keep tourists from coming. Seems the letter posted at the beginning of this post bears that out. As always, just my opinion.
