The crowds start to disperse the minute you clear customs in Cancun. The vast majority of the American’s head straight for the cabs that will whisk them a few minutes away to the mega resorts, all you can eat restaurants and swim up bars of Cancun. Another wave will hop into air conditioned vans speeding off to Playa Del Carmen, Mayakoba etc. By now the airport is thinning w/ the latest batch of tourists save for the intrepid few in car rental queues for a two hour drive to Tulum.
