Yeah, I've heard about the cruise ship robbing at port too, Ginny! Yikes!
In Cancun, he went to some Mayan pyramids (UHHH AWESOME!) and did a zip line that went through caves and stuff and dumps you in the water at the end. I love zip lines so much. The timeshare is on the narrow strip where all the resorts are. He said they didn't feel unsafe even once.
