damiike has indicated that this thread is about Mexico


A nice easy question. I am backpacking with 2 mates (guys) and staying in the Cancun area from Dec 19 - Jan 2.

Can anyone tell me what the atmosphere is like during the day and partying at night. Is there any particular clubs people would recommend etc at this time.

We are all 22.

All help is much appreciated as we are novices from down under :P.

Hey Mike!
Cancun is a party town. You three blokes will probably be "raped" the first nite! Lots of pretty girls & lovely beaches. Senor Frog is one of the most popular hang outs. A sign hanging just inside the door said "If the music's too loud, you're too old"...that's it!
The temp there is quite tropical. The ocean is beautiful & should be warm. Easiest & cheapest way to get around is by bus. Be sure to see old ruins at Chichen Itza & Tulum. Nr Tulum is Escaret - underwater caves that are wonderful to explore. Cozumel is one of the best scuba diving areas in the world. You might take along your own gear, which can be rented but it's scratched.
If you have time to get to the west coast, go to PV. It's a great city too. That's where I'll be around the time you're in Cancun.
Good luck!
