Okay, so maybe I am an addict... but I don't smoke! Does that count too???

I've used 3 PAY internet places while we were in Playa. I won't go to one that charges more than 30 pesos per hour. There's generally a sliding scale ~ the longer you stay on, the better deal you get. The computers at Tropical Casablanca on 1st Avenue between Calle 10 y 12 ran 10 pesos for 20 minutes. I think it was the same at the Eclipse Hotel between 12 y 14. Both these places had sort of slow connections compared to what I am used to, but they were OK.

In November we went to a place just off Ave 5 at about...hmmm...Calle 22 or 24 (towards the ocean) that had FAST connections and ran about 20 pesos an hour.

The best deal was at Villas Sacbe, where we got to use their computer for free....I suspect that other hotels MAY offer this.

The price one block off 5th in the places I have checked is mx$15 per hour, or mx$4 for 15 min. with wide band connections. If you pay more check that you get some advantages over those prices, like free coffe or nicer chairs and newer keyboards.
