    I've never been there in November. :( Maybe 808Sensation knows.

    Tequila volleyball is awesome! can't miss it!

    3 craziest things.... I'll name a few... I don't know about only three!! :)

    Well.... entertainment staff banging a guest. lol. a big no no but it doesn't bother me at all lol.

    there are always body shots on the bar.... but I've seen a few lower body shots. They were fun. :)

    I've seen people getting frisky DURING THE DAY lol, where the hammocks are.

    The oceanside jacuzzi has tons of fun in it, especially at night but during the day as well.

    I was told by a staff member that it may say "mens" but women can go into the mens side spa locker room. There is a jacuzzi in there and this can be very fun.

    I don't know if this still happens but I have heard a few stories of happy endings to the massages lol.

    Having fun on the balcony is my favorite. Any time of day! lol.

    and of course if you walk the beach at night chances are you will see people stirring the honey!

    I can't seem to think right now :( lol

    what percentage of the time is the water too rough for swimming. Can't imagine that great beach, but no swimming. That would be a deal breaker for us.

    Even if the water directly in font of the GP is too rough to swim, you can easily walk up and down the hotel zone beach in very little time.

    Unfortunately the water in Cancun is unpredictable. Even with a yellow or green flag there could still be strong undertows and currents for a good swimmer. If you are looking for the best beach to swim, my favorite is the beach in front of Dreams resort at the top of the "7". It has waves but is beautiful and calm. There aren't as many rocks to kick/step on (except for the ones on the tip of the "7") and it's just beautiful! The NH Krystal is there too.

    If you are going into the water at all I would highly recommend beach shoes. There tends to be rocks underwater that you don't know of until you kick. I know one year my toe was throbbing so I got out and it was bleeding like crazy.

    I usually stay at the Golden Parnassus..... and then go to Isla Mujeres(for the day) a few times during my stay. Playa Norte is beautiful. It may not be as bright blue as the Cancun beach colors but it is very peaceful and you can go out pretty far and still be shallow. They do have it roped off though. You don't wanna swim in the path of an UltraMar ferry, lol :)

    Although I have never been, I hear Cozumel has great swimming areas also! You would just drive/take a bus to the port and take the ultra mar ferry that goes there.

    I hope this helps!

    Over the years I have become more of a "pool" person anyway. I like the excitement. However this year I will be at GrP with my little one so I'm thinking of doing the beach. :) :huepfen013:

    We are going April 7th- 14th. Hoping that we will not miss ALL of the fun peeps! I am pretty outgoing. My FH not so much. He is very observant and once he gets to know you he opens up pretty well but he isnt the type to walk up and talk to random strangers like I am. So hoping for just a little of the spring break craziness but also a little of the relaxing ;) Anyone else traveled around that time and know if it is still pretty busy?
