When we lived in New York City, we often escaped for a long weekend to some far flung destination. This time it was Cancun. Guess you have to see it once to know what it's like. Not necessarily the kind of vacation we are always looking for, but for a weekend it was perfectly fine. The best of course was, that we were able to use our frequent guest points at the Hyatt Cancun Caribe Resort, so the nights were effectively free (keep in mind that for this perk I spent many many nights away from home on business). The hotel was right at the beach or whatever is left of it.
