I’ve been in Playa del Carmen the past week on holiday and I stayed at an amazing resort – Sandos Caracol, everything was All Inclusive and each night cost me just under $90 USD. Today I am in transit returning from Cancun to Seattle and I’m publishing some of the trip report ‘live’. I arrived at Cancun airport well ahead of schedule since I ordered a shuttle from my hotel and it picked me up at 07:20 and we made it to the airport at 08:00 and the flight left at 11:00. Economy check-in was packed while Premier Access check-in was relatively short and only about five minutes of waiting.
After checking in and clearing security, I headed to the Mera Business Lounge in Terminal 3. I was able to access the lounge using my Priority Pass card which I got along with my American Express Platinum Card. I don’t know if flying Business class on United gets access or not, so I just used the card.
The lounge is relatively small, however each of the seating areas are super comfortable and there is a good selection of beverages and snacks.
There are around six kinds of juices, different kinds of water, alcohol, coffee and tea. Snacks are a bit better than what you would find in a domestic U.S. lounge and there are also finger sandwiches as well as fruit.
There is a mini business section with a TV and there is also a section in front of the lounge which has computer stations and a printer.
Most of the lounge consists of couches and they are super comfortable.
The men’s bathroom is super clean and modern with a very nice design.
Overall the lounge is quite small but super comfortable and there is a good variety of drinks and snacks. The only real downside to the lounge is that it is super cold and you have to wear at least a nice thick jacket (if not more).
