While discussing CUN in a separate thread, several comments were made with reference to the possibility of a new airport in Playa del Carmen. I know for sure this project is being looked at by several groups of investors, and has even been mentioned in the official state government discourse:
Someone mentioned that this new airport (and the contents of the above-linked article seem to confirm it) favors the risk of turning the Mayan Riviera into something similar to Southeastern Florida. Interesting thought... and scary. If it develops that much, I don't think they will end up looking remotely alike... Just look at the other Cancun... Not a slum, but most certainly not nice, and far away from most neighbourhoods of the SE Floridian coast...
On that thread, some fellow a.net members expressed building this new airport is a bad idea (controversy!! Yesss!!). Therefore there is room for discussion... Is there anyone who has more information or opinions to share with this community?
