    Hi we will be ariving in februrary,our first trip to cancun,after 5trips to st.marten we figured we would try someplace else. my question is what kind of tap beer do they serve at the golden parn, and is the alchohol top shelf. Can I get budweiser anywhere in cancun. We can deal with subpar
    food for a week but not subpar booze.Also which booze cruse would anyone recomend and where does it sail out from. Thanks all !!:aktion060:

    haha well we start our kids up here on Bud so they don't get overwhelmed. More of a Kokanee or Rickards Red fan myself.

    Thinking you should tell us what you consider top shelf lol. I stayed at the Golden in January. They had Dos Equis on tap I believe. Sol and Tecate in my fridge. Tequila: El Jimador and Cuervo if you ask for it. If not, you'll get an off brand. Rum: Saw some bacardi. Honestly, didn't recognize most of the brands so def not top shelf. Drinks were hit or miss for me even margaritas. My 2 cents

    For anyone who has recently been there or will be coming back soon, can you let me know what kind of beer that they had on tap at the GP bars? Thanks!

    I have heard that you can pick yourself up some top shelf in town and the bartenders will hold it behind the bar for you to mix with. Not sure how true, but you can get almost anything done for you if you don't mind tipping. My wife loves Crown so I will have to get some for her after I get there, and I'm a big red bull and vodka guy so I will be heading into town to stock up. Red Bull at resorts are usually $4 or more per can although you can easily get 3 drinks out of one can still it adds up day after day. You can pick them up in town for less than $2 per can.

    Dos XX is the only on tap beer. They used to have Corona on tap, but changed back to Dos XX anout 2 years ago. There is a small shop across the street from the hotel that sells all kinds of beer, you can buy it there and the bartenders will keep it cold for you

    well, that defeats the whole purpose of buying all-inclusive if you have to go out and buy your own drinks!! LOL ..... hubby will just have to deal with what they have, or drink the mixed drinks like me!
