    For anyone who has been there recently, are there ways to play tunes from your phone through the television via blue tooth or auxiliary inputs?

    If they are smart TVs then just use a lightning adaptor from your phone Ipad etc to the TV HDMI and change the source on the TV to HDMI .

    Yep pretty much 99.9% sure that will work.

    There also is a stand-alone alarm clock/speaker type unit that is like an I-home (or something similar). Your phone should be able to hook to that directly, or via USB, to play your music. Also, remember I believe streaming internet radio content is a little bit different in Mexico. So I would recommend loaded a few of your favorite party playlist ahead of your trip.

    Jango radio APP works in Mexico. Also Anker sells a bluetooth speaker that is reasonable in price that works really good. It is almost as good as my Bose mini sound link but a fraction of the price.

    Anker 20W Premium Stereo Portable Bluetooth Speaker with Dual 10W Drivers.

    Any chance that is the infamous Alicia from the November 2017 Facebook Group? Yes, she seems like a riot! Look forward to meeting you all.

    Yup. US Pandora will not run in Mexico (at least it's not done so for me). It gives up a "This service is not available in Mexico." message. Oddly, Serius satellite radio does work, so if you've got that app on your device, you can crank up the Ozzie's Boneyard, or Serius XM Fly, or the 90's channel or whatever.

    We bought a little stand-alone speaker, about as tall as an Amazon Echo (basically a very stripped down version of that frame), which we can link via bolue tooth from my iPhone to play whatever is playing ont he phone. I, being an idiot, forgot to put MY music on the phone before our last trip, so Serius radio it was the entire time at Pearl. I've fixed that now, and have about 12Gb of tunes in the memory.

    FYI that speaker gets pretty dang loud, and it only cost about ~$30 USD. Nice thing about it is we'll be able to take it out onto the balcony for music while we're... uh... resting int he hot tub. Yeah, that's it.

    They are Bluetooth enabled but I’m sure that’s a pain in the ass to get working. We bring our own and download play lists ahead of time. As John said pandora doesn’t work there.
