I skimmed this article — es muy triste.
I was at Club Med, Cancun in the late 70’s when it was the only resort on the Riviera Maya. (Van Halen was vacationing there at the time).
A bottle of tequila passed around after dinner:)
There was a side trip to Tulum, all I remember are the ruins by a pristine beach. I have also been to Chichen Itza twice — both times it was allowed to climb the pyramid.
