Just booked hotel stay and airlines tickets for one week at the JP Hotel in Cancus in April, I just learned that there may be some safety factor to be concerned about. Can anyone help with this subject?

    I also booked flight and a week at JW Cancun in April and also have some concerns with safety since the Government issued warnings on 2/20/09.  Has anyone been recently and an advice or concerns you can share?

    So no need to worry about the Government warning that was posted on 2/20/09?  Any suggestions on travel options from the airport to JW?

    They have a shuttle bus from the airport for around $15 round trip per person. You can't miss it as you will be walking right by it when you exit. They have buses that run up and down the strip every five minutes to go to the malls, restaurant etc. It was about $1 per person each way. The people at the J.W. are really great, enjoy.

    Just finished a week at the JW. We enjoyed the property and the CasaMagna next door.  Both are great properties. It seemed a bit windy at the JW.  Not sure why. Next door was calmer.  Lunch at the Beachwalk restaurant next to the pool at the JW was fun. Great view and fast service.  We road the city bus into town almost every evening. 7.5 peso per person per ride. That's $1.05 compared to the $10 taxi.  It was safe and entertaining. Took our college daughter and friend bar hopping for spring break. Aye Carumba! Carlos and Charlies was our favorite. Worked for students and parents. You'll see the police in black swat suit attire with wepons riding in the back of pickup trucks,  More a show of force and presence than anything.  We saw no problems, but then we got back to the JW by midnight to the displeasure of our daughter.  Have fun.

    I'm here at the JW in Cancun and it is absolutely fabulous.  I feel completely safe.  This hotel has exceeded my expectations.
