    I hope it really was a gas leak. If it was some kind of attack then what will the people who say the Cartels' never attack the resorts start saying now?

  2. From Cancun, Mexico

    I live in Cancun since 1988 very close to the Riviera Maya. Please get the facts right, it was an accident in the kitchen because a gas problem. We are very far from the border with the U.S. where all the problems with the narcos are.

    ChangoMango you too have a hardened heart. Pray with me Cnn readers that this poor sinner finds the love of the Lord.

    Lord, grant changomango the wisdom to walk this world with a tender heart. On this sabbath day, lord, we beg that you forgive changomango for his wicked malfeasance and guide his sinning heart down the path of love and righteousness. Blessed in your name our lord. Praise be upon you. Praise upon all good Christians who walk your path of light. Heal the demons that tear changomango asunder. In jesus' name.Amen.

    I've never heard 517 talk like this. He must be a born again Christian or something.

    This beautiful resort is approx 6 miles north of Playa Del Carmen. A gas tank exploded and unfortunately some tourists and hotel workers have died. This is a tragic accident and my heart goes out to those who perished and their families.
    Cancun and the Riviera Maya are safe places for a holiday – this is a tragic accident that could have happened anywhere in the world

    My daughter & I just got back from Jamaica 4 days ago. On our FIRST day in Jamaica, we too had an explosion in our hotel's kitchen area. My daughter & I just so happened to be talking to the security guard when it happened. He took off running to the kitchen, as we watched...the whole dining area cleared out. The employees ran out w/their faces covered. We had to leave out to the drive (front of hotel) to get away from the strong odor of gases. When we asked later about the explosion....we got NO explanation. Everyone acted as though it didn't happen :/
