With the time change and new location the sun sets earlier in Cancun than in DC so it was quite dark as we made our way back to the hotel. The hotels are all very large in this area. Most of them were impressively lit up and very expensive looking. We saw the Hilton, Ritz, ME, Flamingo, Riu, Marriott. There was a good deal of traffic as we made our way to the hotel.
As we arrived to the hotel it was fairly late 930ish or so. The hotel was a few blocks off the main strip and was immediately likable. Our room was cool and clean; with a modern/contemporary design. The hotel was on the water, but with no beach area, only sharp rocks. But our view was stunning and the balcony large.
After we had thoroughly checked out our room we decided to dress, find some dinner, and go out for a night of partying (since we arrived on a Saturday) Since we were within walking distance we strolled down to the main strip (which from here out i'll just call the strip) and after looking around decided to try an open air taqueria which is perfect for people watching.
After eating several tacos, we decided to try to find a place for partying. A slightly overwehlming situation (promoters will haggle, follow, and grab at you) to chose a place. We all finally decided to try Dady Rock and paid about $40 usd for entry and open bar. The music was mostly house/trace mixed in with a few hip hop songs and what my friends called "?lancheros?" The crowd had a lot of tourists and some locals. There was no real dance floor to speak of; there were tables everywhere for table service for no fee.
