I have a precious tiny Chihuahua called Mati, my family and me travel by plane at least four times at the year, we always take her with us. Is hard to find pet friendly hotels specially in Cancun. In some airlines we can't fly in cabin with her and get a lot of stress in Mati, also some people are disagree in share the cabin plane with "a dog". The flights prices are expensive and the pet friendly hotels have high fees for dogs. But at the end we are happy to travel the all family
