My mom is coming on the cruise, I happened to mention I was considering parasailing and she wrote me this email...interesting stuff.
"I was alone in Cancun, which meant I watched a lot and talked very little. Relaxing on the beach. Saw at least 1 body every day (dead) hauled out of the water. there is a rapid drop-off in Cancun and a wicked rip. I assume people did not respect the ocean, and also consumed ++ alcohol. I, on the other hand, watched the shore, how the waves broke, and entered the water in a safe zone.
Re the parasail death I witnessed, the boat operator went out, had the rope taut, which was fine. But then he veered towards shore, creating lots of slack. The slack rope actually went behind a building. This, of course, whipped the parasailer SMACK into the building, killing him instantly. But of course, he has the experience of knowing he was going to hit the hotel. Sickening to see.
In one week, I believe I saw 10 dead tourist bodies."
Something to consider, anyways.
