Request = Visiting family near Cancun.

Is it safe to ride my bike from the airport to downtown Cancun?

My flight arrives late morning on December 23, 2004.

I have ridden about 5000 km so far this year, so I like to have my bike with me. I am staying at cheap hotels downtown- not sure where, yet- and would like to have my bike to visit my folks on the strip, and tour around some.

If there are any recommended resources for checking out areas for biking- offroad or minimal traffic areas, I am all ears-

Thanks,

Rob A

Also- any downtown budget hotel recommendations are appreciated. There seems to be plenty of options through the booking section of this site- Thanks in advance.

If I recall correctly, the road from the airport to Cancun is a highway. Lots of speedy cars and buses ply the route. You may find it a bit dangerous that way due to the traffic.

The distance is 16 kilometers (9 miles).

I would not! Speedy cars on freeway and jungles don't mix!
