Me and the family will be in Cancun next week and we'll be staying at the Moon Palace. This is my our first trip to Cancun and it appears the Moon Palace is very close to MMUN. So I have a couple of questions.
1. Is this a good hotel for plane spotting?
2. Will I encounter any problems with airport security or customs if I bring along a scanner?
Believe me mate,this Hotel is absolutely fantastic!!!!
You might just forget about the aircraft spotting!
Anyway,the aircraft pass to the left of the hotel,as you look out to the sea.
Have a great holiday,i stopped here 4 years ago,and you won't want to go home.

Listen to what the others above have stated. Go out to the beach, meet some girls, drink margaritias and have a good time.
If you do insist on spotting in Cancun, make sure you go when Cubana comes in and out with their IL-62 or Yak-42D.
They have a daily arrival time of 1:20PM and depart at 2:20PM.
Sometimes they use leased A320s which is very boring to see as you can see those at any airport.

I am sure my wife might have an issue with the meeting girls part. But the beach, the pools, and the drinks are firmly on the schedule. And thanks for the Cubana tip....I will be watching out for that one.

Hey Folks, the Moon Palace is in the Riviera Maya area and is south of Cancun about 45 minutes by a shuttle bus...So getting back up to the airport might be a problem....for a day trip.....Just thought you'd like to know....
