Gosh - so hard to say! Seriously, I can't say you will go wrong regardless of where you find yourself. Kinda embarrassing but true is that I don't remember the names to many of the places I found myself in. If you go to the upstairs part of Santaneras...which I HIGHLY recommend for a fun evening of chillin out and having some drinks...you'll find some great times there! Then I remember just walking down that same street towards the beach and blue parrot (you will find your way...I promise) there are a bunch of cute outdoor bars all within a few feet of eachother.
Soooo you just stop into each one, throw one back....and on to the next. :-) Sounds so "college-esque" (I know) and I'm 31! hahaha BUT, it's a blast!
OH and tell your girlfriend not to pack too many high heel strappy shoes. TRUST me on this one....you will get much more use of flip flops than anything else. (ok, suggest to her maybe just one high heel strappy shoe....I know how us girls think!) but the rest is totally cas. Which was what I loved about Playa. Have SO much fun!

JB,
Did you take Spanish in college? You seem very comfortable with it. Do you use it much? I'm taking it now and I really like it, but I wonder how much I'll end up using it here in the US. Hopefully lots!

I took spanish a long time ago in high school and I don't really (in fact, never) use it up here in the States. I've been lucky enough to go to Honduras/El Salvador often recently (Habitat for Humanity) so I pick it up quickly when I'm in Central America.

Tequila Barrel...25% off with the Playa Deal Card! The Tequila Barrel is around 10th street I believe....a small wander from the fantastic Luna Blue and their delightful owners.

Excellent!!! That means we'll just drink 25% more tequila!!!
I read on playa.info that if we booked a hotel through this site, we'll receive a free card. I booked through this site, that then linked to Luna Blue/Zanzibar website. How do I go about receiving this discount card???

Hey J-Ohio.....good to see another midwestern peep! I'm serious when I say I think we need a midwest peep meet. I nominate mowtown! (yes, bcz I'm from the burbs of detroit) I should start a new thread on that...
Anyways - hope you're getting a lot of your questions answered by searching and reading through a lot of the other posts? It really helps. That way, once you arrive, you don't have to waste too much time trying to figure things out. You'll know exactly what the great spots are and start your adventures!
