Planning on developing a ski site in Cancun. Hotel in the location.
I was wondering how many skiers travel to Cancun every year.

    Seems to be getting a little more dicey in the Cancun area with state department warnings, but I do go diving in Cozumel somewhat frequently. Flying into Cancun and getting a ski set on the way down and back instead of flying directly into Cozumel could be a good option.

    We hit Coz once or twice a year, too.

    @WoodySkier maybe he is thinking of a place with an English option on the website? But no, parts of Mexico are getting too sketchy. Plenty of options on this side of the border.

    I may be out of the loop. Other than the bootleg liquor scandal, what is dicey about Cancun ?

    I use to go very often to Cancun to ski.
    Staying at Club Med, skiing with Scott Smith.
    Since Scott is not serious any longer, I did not ski there again.
    I would love to return.
    Tell me when you open, I will visit you for sure.

    @pq2, Sounds great, having skied with you in the past it would be interesting to see what and were your plans are.
    Not sure I know what I am doing. The boat goes I follow. Trying to perfect the deep water start. Squirrel!

    Fly in for my job fairly often.
    Stir vigorously then leave!

    Another Coz diver, so it would make a fun additional option. Makes me want a real Mexican taco camarones & Cozumel coconut ice cream.

    “State department recommendations”? US government not believable. Never an incident in 20+ years in tourista Cancun/isla/Cozumel.

    Skied with some sketchy guy in the bay behind a pos inboard held together with duct tape. Big mistake.

    I’d frequent a place with integrity.

    I have skied with @pq2 and he is a quality person and is only concerned with everyone having a good skiing experience. When I skied in the lagoon with him we went to 3 different areas to ensure we were out of the wind.

    Thank you for your comment @colo_skier !

    @pq2 , you took my brother and myself skiing a few years ago in the lagoon. We would definitely ski with you at your site.

    @pq2 is this where the wake open is in April. Coming down to this event if it's the same place I'll bring my ski along
  • pq2pq2 Posts: 33 Baller
    Hello @jimski I guess is the same place. I will ask the driver if he knows anything about the open and will let you know. Bring your ski!
  • pq2pq2 Posts: 33 Baller
    @jimski it is the same place we’re the open will be. Confirmed
  • jimskijimski Posts: 168 Baller
    @pq2 right on I'll be there
  • jimskijimski Posts: 168 Baller
    @pq2 & @schafer do you know of any hotels close to the site
  • schaferschafer Posts: 287 Baller
    @jimski Iberostar Paraiso Beach is right across the road.
    Vidanta Riviera Maya is the next one north across the road. It has 5 resorts within I believe. (The grand luxxe, grand Mayan, the grand bliss, the Bliss, Mayan Palace)
    You would have to “jaywalk” across the highway but you could literally walk right across from those ones.

    Thanks @schafer I'll check them out

    There is so much to do in Cancun, Playa, Cozumel that I would leave my ski home and do plenty of other things.
