Where to go in Mexico

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Where to go in Mexico

Post by Reefer2 »

I would like to go to Mexico sometime in July/August for 1 week.

Where should we go?

Cancun vs. Puerto Vallarta vs. Los Cabo

Mostly just sitting in the sun and doing some walking around.

I am a pretty boy so don't want to end up someone's "best friend" so want a safe place.

Been to Cancun and Vallarta. Prefer the latter.

Cancun is party central, its only reason for being is to cater to tourists.
.
Cancun has much nicer beaches, Vallarta is a better town (The Malecon is a nice stroll). Both will offer the traditional touristy shit.

If you do Vallarta, check out Las Caletas.

Why is PV so much cheaper?

Almost $600 per person cheaper.

Merida or Oaxaca

Skip the beaches and enjoy.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Maybe Disneyland so you can just hang out with the other princesses?

Cannot believe the "pretty boy" comment went unaddressed until now!

:lol:

You would figure that Reef would be more interested in snorkeling and seeing fish in their natural habitat - but he's more worried about getting 'stuck' in Mexican jail.

If he really is the pretty boy he claims to be I think his only concern should be that his new bestie starts with the taquitos instead of the burritos!

We've been trying to be kind to Reef ever since we found out about his... handicap.

Yo Reef, booba: ACAPULCO BABY!!!

Long known as "The Hollywood Gang Hideaway" you can hob-nob with the jet-set!

Ever seen Elvis in "Fun in Acapulco"?

Trust me good buddy!!

Most of the locals are fluent in English, but appreciate when you throw a little Spanish back their way.

And hey, instead of just using the standard si/gracias/Buenos-días/por-favor senior

... try mixing it up with some si/gracias/Buenos-días/por-favor culero/comemierda/pendejo etc.

Here's a good ice-breaker if things ever seem a little tense in a bar, smile, lift your glass and say:

"Me cago en tu madre!!"

They'll love you for it!

Anyhoo, have fun my friend, it's a great country, and here's a tip:

Wear a "Make America Great Again" t-shirt and remember to raise your hand 90 degrees as a salute!

Que te folle un pez... hijo de las mil putas!!

Such a beautiful language...

Tu madre es mi punta is always a great ice breaker.

The Cancun side during July/Aug is just starting into the hurricane season, so you may not get that great sunny weather (usually a day or two of short torrential downpour then clouds the rest of a 7 day stay).

South of Cancun is Playa del Carmen - good restaurants, still has the great Caribbean side beach (though with the hurricanes there has been some erosion), much more laid back than Cancun.

PV is good, just doesn't have as nice a beach as Cancun side.

Only been in Cabo for 7 hours, but the beach is nice and there is always Cabo Wabo.
