I have been to close to 40 Mayan ruins and am going to a newly opened one in Belize in two weeks. They keep finding them faster than I can visit.
I use to drive off the beaten path to see things, but no more and I use to wander all over the tourist towns, now I stick to the main streets. I probaly won’t even leave the tourist trap in Cozmuel this time.

Unless you are a dive-jockey, may I suggest the cheaper tourist trap of Playa del Carmen? Cozumel has nothing to offer you can’t get for 2/3 the price in PdC.
Even a ferry-supplied island economy is still an island economy. I love visiting Cozumel, but the cheaper ferry from the mainland way.
I see you, too, have seen you just can’t tramp in Mexico anymore.
Damn sad. Maybe the new President can do something. The last 2 failed MISERABLY on controlling the gangs control outside of populated areas (and Mexico City and Monterrey are fighting to hang in there).
The new guy is PRI — maybe he can just buy them off like the last PRItista did...
If you get a few minutes can you please post here (if appropriate since we have hijacked this to “Travel in Mexico and Central America!” thread) or PM me about Belize? Mrs. FD and I are planning that for next year and have been talking about it for years.
I haven't been in over 20 years.
