Mass tourism, we are being sold a culture in a way that is too theatrical. No interest screens if you are looking for the authentic.

Very nice implementation. The only thing that was determined at some point was the compulsive turning on of things. Sometimes you had the feeling that they wanted to get the last pesos out of everything. Otherwise the trip is very worthwhile. Impressive!
