I have to warn you…
From the moment you arrive in Cancun, until the moment you leave, every person whose path you cross, wants one thing… Your money. And trust me, they will get it if you’re not prepared.
They take advantage of people just like you everyday. These guys are experts at separating you from your money. We all underestimate them and it is a critical mistake.
This one of a kind book prepares you… Educates you… And saves you tons of money.
This is why, if you are coming to Cancun on vacation, you must read every word of this letter. Don’t be another naive victim of the “Cancun Connection”.
Inside, I reveal dozens of secrets “they” do not want you to know. I shine a spotlight on things like…
|The only way to get from the airport to your hotel for about $5 per person. Forget the $45/person shuttles and $60 cab rides. This ONE tip covers your entire investment in this guide!|
|How to save hundreds on tours, excursions and souvenirs. This alone is worth the investment in the guide|
|How I stayed in a water front hotel for $40 a day… and you can too… And I enjoyed dirt cheap drinks at the tiki bar|
|The one question you MUST ask before you ever get into a cab. (I was actually threatened for publishing this)|
|5 restaurants with delicious food where you can eat on the water for about $5-6 per person (And yes, they are in the Hotel Zone)|
|The rental car “secret” Expedia won’t tell you that will double your bill. And what to do about it.|
|And that is only a fraction of what is inside this 56 page “insider’s guide” to Cancun|
From: Juan Doe
Location: The Beaches of Cancun, Mexico
Dear Cancun Visitor,
Are you ready for the truth about Cancun?
Cancun is one of the most beautiful places in the world, right? Unfortunately, it has a dirty, seedy underground which few tourists know about.
I call it the “Cancun Connection”.
This group conspires to make Cancun one of the biggest, most efficient tourist traps in the world.
For starters, 4 million people travel to Cancun every year. The reason why is as clear as the Caribbean.
Cancun has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It is warm enough all year long to enjoy the beach everyday.
And it is close enough to the USA and Canada that air tickets are relatively inexpensive.
But for those that don’t have this book…
Getting to Cancun cheap is the last cheap thing you will do your entire vacation.
Let me tell you something you may not already know…
“Cancun is not cheap!”
Many visitors are surprised to discover this. They think of Mexico as being a relatively poor country with a low cost of living.
It’s true for many parts of Mexico. But it is most definitely not true of Cancun or any part of the Riviera Maya.
All these destinations (Cancun, Cozumel, Playa Del Carmen) lie in the most expensive state in Mexico, Quintana Roo.
Soon after you arrive, you will discover…
|Airport Taxis||Taxis in the hotel zone are outrageous. It will cost you more to drive 3-10 miles from the airport to your hotel than it would in New York City; around $60 USD. And just to go a few blocks… $8 minimum!|
|Airport Shuttles||The shuttle, where they pack 10-15 of you in a hot van will cost you $45-60 per person. And you’ll have to stop at every other passenger’s hotel unless you are lucky enough to be staying at the first stop.|
|Restaurants||The tourist restaurants in the hotel zone cost as much and even more than in any major city in the world. But there are a few exceptions which I’ll tell you all about.|
|Drinks||Drink prices at your hotel, restaurants and bars will rival or exceed drink prices in a nice bar in a major American city. For example, a large piña colada at Señor Frogs in the Hotel Zone will cost you about $15!|
|Souvenirs||Souvenirs like t-shirts, caps and trinkets can be very expensive in Cancun if you don’t know where and how to buy them. You will save 300% or more after reading this book.|
|Shopping||Cancun has some of the finest stores in the world selling designer jewelry and clothing. And the prices match or exceed prices in Los Angeles or London. Do not come here looking for a bargain on those type of items|
|Tourist Attractions||Almost every tourist attraction is going to be more expensive than what a normal person thinks it should be. To get into some of the major parks like Xcaret costs more than it does to get into Disney World, around $125 per person for 1 day.|
The plan and purpose of every part of the tourist industry in Cancun is to squeeze every dollar they can out of you, at every point in your journey.
But it does not have to be that way.
“Ok Juan, Who Are You Guys?”
It’s a great question because you need to know we know what we’re talking about.
You don’t want to take advice from some travel agent who spent a week here. They would have no clue how it really works. And you sure don’t want to take advice from your hotel concierge. (Hint: He’s paid for everything he recommends)
And please don’t take any advice from the free guides, maps and pamphlets they pass out at your hotel, rental car stands and area restaurants! Because everything in them is paid advertising.
Everything we recommend is unsolicited, tried and true advice.
Ok, so who are we?
This book was written by two people with two very different but equally valuable points of view.
The first, Juan Doe is a Mexican national, born and raised in Mexico. He has spent the last 28 years living and working in Cancun, very close to the tourist industry.
Juan is providing the “inside” information only a local knows.
This guy knows everyone who is anyone in Cancun. Walking down the street with him is an adventure and also an exercise in patience. He can’t take 10 steps without someone saying hello to him.
He’s worked in or with all the tourist businesses and hotels in Cancun and the Riviera Maya. He knows all the scams, tricks and their operating tactics.
The second guy is me, John Doe.
I’m an American living and operating a business in Cancun for the past year. I love it here and I’ve learned so much more living here than I ever knew as a 3-time tourist.
I am providing the American point of view on Juan’s suggestions. As well as throwing in a lot of my own.
Let’s face it, Americans, Canadians and UK citizens have different views about what is acceptable, appropriate or even entertaining.
I bring the non-Latin perspective.
For example, some of the places Juan likes to eat… I’m sorry but I won’t eat there and neither would you.
I mean, how many people like to eat tacos made with cow eyes, tongue or cheek?
So, those suggestions were left out and all the good stuff was left in. But the important thing is…
Between the two of us, we know Cancun inside and out.
By the way, you may be wondering why we are using anonymous names.
The truth is, there are many people in Cancun who would be very interested in knowing who is providing this information.
And they would do almost anything to stop it from getting out. We have to protect our identities in order to live happily and safely and operate our businesses here.
Yes, it is that serious.
But we are committed to helping visitors to Cancun. Personally, I am sick and tired of seeing all the “sheep” getting sheared by the locals. That is my motivation. In this book…
“We Expose ALL the Tricks the Cancun Connection Uses to Empty Your Wallet!”
And naturally, we show you how to:
- Not be a victim of the “Cancun Connection”
- Save a lot of money on everything you do
- Eat, drink and shop like a local (and learn a lot about the real Cancun)
- And still have an amazing, fun and more adventurous vacation
Cancun is such a beautiful place with so many fun things to do. It is why I moved here. I highly recommend you visit Cancun. But before you do, you must…
Read “Cancun on The Cheap”.
“Cancun On The Cheap”
The only Cancun guide which really saves you money.
It was written by locals, for tourists.
We pull back the curtain on the scams, tricks and techniques the “Cancun Connection” uses to empty your wallet. There is nothing else like “Cancun On The Cheap” available anywhere.
Take a look at the table of contents:
Cancun On The Cheap Chapter 1: The Mexican Connection Chapter 6: Eating Cheap But Good Chapter 2: Where to Stay Cheap Chapter 7: Drinking For Less Chapter 3: Start Saving Before You Come Chapter 8: The Night Life On A Budget Chapter 4: How To Get To and From The Airport For $5 Chapter 9: Tours and Excursion Deals Chapter 5: How To Get Everywhere Else for Peanuts Chapter 10: Shopping For Bargains Chapter 6: Beach Bargains Chapter 11: Montezuma’s Revenge & Other Mishaps
As you can see, everything is covered from arrival to departure. And even before you arrive. Each chapter has moneysaving tips which can save you any amount from $1 to $50,000!
No, I’m not kidding about saving $50,000.
You’ll know what I mean when you read Chapter 1. It is easily the most important chapter and almost every other chapter builds upon what you discover there.
But that’s just the beginning. Let me give you some juicy details about the rest of the book…
The concierge is there to help you, right? Wrong. Find out why on page 10 This one word: ███████ can cost you $50,000 if you don’t know what to do when you hear it. (Page 9) The one thing you MUST remember, even if you forget every other word in the book. (pg 10) The dirty little secret your bell boy, bus driver and taxi driver all know.

(pg 13) The last place you should EVER stay… Unless you plan to follow every word of advice in this guide. (pg 14)
“Wow! I’m Saving In More Ways Than I Can Imagine”
Exactly! That’s the whole idea.
And it is necessary because the “Cancun Connection” has more ways to take your money than you ever imagined. You have to be on your guard at all times. Everyone wants your money.
But I’m not through yet. Let’s look at some more ways to save.
Save $20 or more by bringing these 2 simple things. Everyone forgets the first one yet everyone must have it. (pg 15) 3 Things you must NOT do in Cancun until you know the right way to do them.

“So I Save Before I Even Leave Home?”
Yes you do.
And as soon as you land, you continue saving. You need this information so you don’t walk off the plane like an innocent lamb to slaughter. You have to be prepared because these guys are experts.
And you will be prepared. Here’s some more inside information only you will get:
The 2 times you should NOT ride the bus. For several reasons. (pg 21) My own little “trick” for choosing the best bus to ride. They are not all the same, even on the same route. (pg 21) The secret “skim” every bus driver takes but you do not have to contribute if you know this rule.

But, it’s right under their noses (pg 25) How to get treated like a millionaire on a beautiful beach for about $15 a day. Showers, umbrellas, tropical drinks, the works. (pg 25)
“You Get the REAL Inside Scoop”
Believe me, this stuff is simple but very effective.
When you think like a local, you spend like a local. And with an average salary of about $5/day, these people have to know how to do things cheap.
So will you.
Here are a few more tidbits from the guide:
8 places to eat excellent food in the Hotel Zone for under $10 per person. Most are $5 or less. (pg 27-38) Where to eat a great cheeseburger in the shade with a beautiful view of the setting sun over the lagoon. And spend less than $6 per person. (pg 27) A dirt-cheap, hidden seafood restaurant in the heart of the Hotel Zone with tables on the beach and palms wrapped with Christmas lights. If you don’t read about it here, you’ll never find it. (pg 28) A local Italian restaurant with amazing pasta and smoothies. About $10/plate but servings so big you can share and both be full. (pg 29) Where to get a massive burrito and michelada for about $7, 24 hours a day. Its Canadian operated and its near the bars. A neat little trick for saving $5-10/person on an “all you can drink” bracelet in the bar area. (pg 31) The single best place to buy a bottle of booze. If you drink bourbon, you MUST read this. (pg 32) The restaurant/bar in the bar area which is 2 for 1 all day, every day. (pg 32) Where to buy tours and excursions to save $10/person or more. And the little white lie your hotel will tell you about this place. (pg 33) The popular souvenir shop you shouldn’t touch with a 10′ pole. And the misleading advertising on their sign. (pg 34)
“I Get Great Restaurants at McDonalds Prices?”
Yes you do.
The pasta at the Italian restaurant rivals any other. And the others… excellent seafood caught the same day… authentic Mexican food. You can’t be here without this information.
Do you really want to eat at Outback while you’re in Cancun?
And the souvenir savings are huge. Everyone has to bring something back to their friends and family right?
Well now, you can be the hero when you come home because your suitcase will be jammed with souvenirs. When you see how cheap you can REALLY get them, you’ll buy something for everyone.
But that’s not all. You haven’t seen half of what you get:
The secret souvenir shop with amazing prices, sitting right in the middle of some of the most expensive shops in the Hotel Zone. (pg 34) The little market where locals go which you must visit for authentic Mexican crafts at a great price. (pg 35) 3 places to go if you forgot your camera memory card (haven’t we all?) If you buy one near your hotel, you’ll be taken to the cleaners. (pg 35) How to properly shop a massive market like Mercado 28. And then how to buy for 3X less than the asking price. (pg 36) The amazing doctor who will come to your room for about $30. Even if it is 3 am! (pg 38) A great dentist, very close, who can do emergency repairs on any dental issues you have. And she’s cheap! (pg 38) The contact information for an excellent optometrist when you lose your glasses snorkeling (pg 42) And if you are thinking of getting a tattoo, the best damn tattoo artist in Cancun is on page 39.
“I Hope I Don’t Need a Doctor or Dentist…”
I do too but things can happen, right?
People lose their glasses. Crowns fall off. We all get a stomach ache.
If one of these things happen, I don’t want you to be at the mercy of the doctor the hotel calls. Because if you are, you’re going to pay like an American. And that means hundreds of dollars.
This information is like cheap insurance.
“Let’s Wrap It Up”
As you can see, there are dozens of ways this guide will save you money.
I doubt you will use them all but you don’t have to. If you just use a few of the money-saving ideas in this guide, you will save significant money.
And if you use them all… Wow! Let’s take a look at the possibilities. Here are some average numbers for a couple on a 4 day trip.
I’m not including hotel costs because they are so variable but the savings can be significant. And I’m not including a rental car because most don’t rent but if you do, you’ll save at least $20/day with the advice in the guide.
This is not the worst case.
|Item||Without Guide||With Guide||Savings|
|Meals (assuming all-inclusive for most meals)||
See what I mean?
The average couple can save $450 dollars just by reading this guide before they go. For you, it may be a little less or a whole lot more. It depends on your preferences and decisions. But no matter which advice you choose to take, you will save a significant amount of money.
If that table doesn’t convince you, this guide is something you must have before you go to Cancun, let me make it a little easier.

And that is the point, right?
When you know your enemies move, you know how to counter it. Imagine, when you know that…
- You can eat a great meal, Mexican or American, for less than $5-6 a person, you’re not going to aimlessly wander into Señor Frogs and get fleeced.
- You can get to your hotel for less than $6 per person, you’re not going to get in the $60 cab
- You can get souvenirs for everyone back home at the same prices locals pay instead of 300-1000% more, you’ll be able to make everyone happy back home
“OK, Juan, How Much Is Cancun On The Cheap?”
We’re putting the information out there to inform as many people as we can. And there’s no way we could do that if we charged some ridiculous amount for it.
You can be sure of one more thing…
We are well aware of how hypocritical it would be to write a book about saving money in Cancun and charge a fortune for it. We want everyone coming to Cancun to have a copy of this guide with them at all times.
And there is only one way to ensure that happens… Price it low!
So, that is exactly what we did. We know you have probably already shelled out $1,500 to $2,500 or more for air and hotel (or you’re going to). And we know the average tourist in Cancun, not the ones reading this guide, spend $100/day per person. Even IF they’re in an all-inclusive resort!
So obviously you need a break, right?
That’s why we’re only asking about 1/2 of what you’ll save when you take our advice traveling from the Airport to your hotel… only $27.
You know what?
As I write this, I’m changing my mind. High season in Cancun is very close. A lot of people are coming to Cancun. I want to make this a no-brainer for every traveler. For the rest of high season, your investment will be only $27! After that, I may raise the price at any time, so get your guide today.
