Rob, your Spanish is certainly much better than mine will ever be.

But I think the article mentions "cuartos piratas" as a phrase. I read the article as a general reporting of the (legitimate, but I'm not sure about practically enforceable..) problem of rental facilities, of which condos are just one part, not paying the appropriate taxes---while legitimate hotels etc must pay.

Secondly, I'm not seeing the specific mention of "foreigners" (in the non Mexican sense)...but rather "tourists" in the general sense.

Can you help me parse the article, and maybe help improve a canucks grasp of the language?
