Playboy Casino Opens in Cancun, Mexico

14 December 2010 by admin

playboy logoI now have another reason to visit Cancun once it is safe enough for tourists. Even if no one is ever able to make the area safe from the drug wars, I still might risk the trip. Playboy has opened a new casino resort in the city, with a grand opening last weekend that involved lots of fun and no murders.

playboy-CancunCome to think of it, there are new Playboy casinos coming to Macau and London, so I might wait and go to those so I don’t have to risk my life. Anyway, on Saturday, December 11, Playboy Casino opened its doors for a private party. Among the VIPs in attendance for this red carpet event was former Playboy model Carmen Electra, who is best known for – actually, I’m not sure what she’s best known for, but she is famous.

The new $7.5 million casino resort opened to the general public on Sunday and did not have a problem finding customers. Scantily clad beautiful women and casino games have always gone together well, and you feel a little better when you lose a hand if you get to watch a Playboy Bunny take your money. In truth, most of the men there would gratefully give the Bunnies their money for a chance to hang out with them, so the opportunity to do that and still have a chance to win money only increases the casino’s appeal.

playboy-dealerFox News Latino reported that Playboy Enterprises expects to hire 255 direct jobs and 650 indirect jobs for the new Caribbean casino resort. Among the first jobs to be filled were the new Bunnies and there was some stiff competition. Reuters reported that more than 1,500 women applied for the positions and those applications came from all over the world. Never in my dreams did I think people from other countries would try to get a job in Mexico, but that is the power of the Playboy brand. Of the 1,500 applicants, Playboy chose only the best 25. The beautiful Bunnies will serve as dealers, hostesses, cocktail waitresses and more.

College students who head to Cancun for Spring Break next year will be faced with a new sight, and I’m not just talking about car bombs, cross-street shootouts and other gang-related violence. They will also be greeted with a new 12,000 square-foot casino resort with the recognizable Playboy brand.

The casino expansion is all part of a new strategy for Playboy Enterprises, which is phasing out the magazine, videos and television as a source of revenue and is focusing on other aspects of the brand. In the Internet age, the company that started as a gentleman’s magazine needs to adapt to stay in business and expanding their position in the casino industry is a good start.

    I live in Cancun for over 25 years, managing to form a successful family. It is sad that people with the wrong standard, without having had direct contact with this beautiful resort, spread a completely false message of Cancun.

    After the murder of two employees of the U.S. Consulate in the border city of Ciudad Juárez, many have written me asking if it is safe to travel to Mexico. The answer is: If you are brave enough to travel to Washington, DC, you can safely visit most of Mexico.

    Data you consider the most violent countries in Latin America: Honduras has a homicide rate of 61 deaths per 100 000 inhabitants, with 60 still Jamaica, Venezuela and El Salvador, 52 each; Guatemala, 47; Trinidad and Tobago , 40, Colombia 39, Brazil 22, Dominican Republic 21, Panama 19, Ecuador 18, Nicaragua 13, Paraguay 12, Mexico and Costa Rica to about 11.5 each; Bolivia with 10.5 and Uruguay, Argentina, Peru and Chile under 10.
    Comparatively, while the U.S. homicide rate is lower than that of Mexico, Washington, DC, has a homicide rate of 31 persons per 100 thousand inhabitants, and New Orleans has 74.
    Casas-Zamora said in an interview that “violence in Mexico is concentrated in a few cities, mainly in the states of Sinaloa, Chihuahua and Baja California, or in cities like Ciudad Juarez, which is out of control. But in the country as a whole, not come even close to Washington, DC.
    Recognizes that the murder rate in Mexico may have increased in recent months as a result of crossfire between Mexican security forces and drug cartels, or between drug cartels. But he added they are still well below what they were 10 years ago.
    Largely for demographic reasons: the birth rates in Mexico are falling while a large number of Mexicans have been migrating to the United States in recent decades. Homicide rates in Mexico have been declining steadily for decades. They may have increased only marginally over the past year, he said.
    The latest travel alert to Mexico, issued by the U.S. State Department, after the death of two employees of the consular service in Ciudad Juarez, says it has temporarily authorized the departure of family members of U.S. consulates in border cities Northern Mexico: Tijuana, Nogales, Ciudad Juarez, Nuevo Laredo, Monterrey and Matamoros, and advises U.S. citizens “to delay unnecessary travel to Durango, Coahuila and Chihuahua.”
    For Mexico as a whole, it is said that “visitors are encouraged U.S. citizens to remain in the well known tourist areas.
    Beware
    My opinion: Mexico faces a dangerous increase in violence, and I would not advise you to spend your next vacation in Ciudad Juarez, or anywhere else where drug violence are occurring.
    However, Mexico is a huge country. Say it is unsafe to travel to Mexico City, Puerto Vallarta or Cancun, or not allow their children to spend spring break there, as he said last year the socket on the right of Fox News, Bill O ‘Reilly, is so irresponsible as to say that it is unsafe to travel to some of the largest U.S. cities.
    The State Department travel alert correctly noted that the violence is concentrated in some Mexican states, and should have been Mexico’s national figures in perspective. Not a bad idea that from now on, were compared with homicide rates in other countries, and that of his hometown, Washington, DC

    Can you please tell me if the Playboy Casino has opened yet.

    Many thanks.

    I have been in Cancun for a week now and we have even traveled two hours south driving a rental car and I must tell you it is VERY safe. No problems at all and the locals are friendly. Your worring about murders are misleading. I would come back anytime there is way more to do here than any one could do in a month.

  4. James says:

    For just one example, there were less than 500 homicides in New York City in 2010 (which was a bad year for the city, a 23% increase from 2009). In Ciudad Juarez, there were 3,075 homicides.

  5. James says:

    Thanks for your input. Your incorrect statistics are always welcome.

    your comentaries about mexico safety problems shows your lack knowlege, you only have CNN knowlege,because even in the most dangerous city in mexico they dont kill as many people as NY, New Orleans or Washington DC. So why dont you make a good research before posting stupid comentaries about a country because at least in mexico kids dont go to schools to start killing classmates.
