Yeah, I was down there recently. Stayed in the Hotel Zone and went looking for some action. I had rented a car and armed with the mongering map provided by one of the members (thank you BTW) , headed into the old city of Cancun. The only area where these places appear to be.Originally Posted by Phillycat
First off, I got pulled over 3X and each time it required paying a bribe. Classic out of town shit like making an illegal left, school zone speed limit changes. The fuckers actually threatened to cuff me and take me in. It was despicable. Yeah yeah, they're just trying to survive. Screw that. Never going back again.
Secondly, the only viable place that I could find, where you didn't have to go rambling through alley's and what not, was Mary Cancun's. And their pricing was ludicrous. For that kind of money ($150) I decided to wait until I got back home where I know what I'm getting.
And lastly, Club Fantasy was a dive strip joint straight out of a Tarantino movie filled with what I thought were really sub quality chicks. So I was in and out of there in like 15 minutes. Maybe it was because I was there over Christmas or most probably it's the old adage "To each, his own".
Net net, if you speak the language or are familiar with the city or even better yet, are staying there, then you might find a workable solution. But if like myself, you're staying in the hotel zone, it can be a relatively costly cab ride to go there and back.
Either way, I clearly suggest taking a cab and letting the driver handle it. I already had a car and after the run in's with the Police, was in no mood to go back and try again. And to be honest, in my few interactions with the cabbies, they didn't seem to be in the best of spirits as I think their feeling the after shocks from the US's deteriorating economy. So buyer beware, it's rip off the gringo season all over that place. That part sucked too.
Best of luck to you.
