But the infrastructure is going down, traffic chaos, children have to walk a long distance on dangerous unpaved roads, no public hospital, no traffic police, tours of quantity but lack on quality, drugs, undocumented migrants. No respect for covid rules even by the tourist who get out of the hotel

If you are scared to drive, you need a driver, or you are not an experienced driver also. DEFENSE driving is the secret

I see that our Minister of Tourism is very poor at math. No frigging way resorts are at 97%. Not even close. I am in these “almost full” resorts a few times a week. I am on the beaches a few times a week. I am on the streets 7 days a week. No way the resorts are close to full.
