The City owns the night!

No matter what part of the world you are from, Fridays are always the most special day of the week and the Friday nights are the most expected. It is true that in a Paradise like Cancun is easy to forget the date and time because is a non-stop party, but even in this delightful destination the Fridays are obviously better than any other day.

Last Friday we visited the iconic nightclub: The City Cancun. Famous for being the largest one in Latin America and also notorious for being the place where the most important DJs around the world have made their beats sound until the sun appears in the horizon.

More than just a nightclub, The City is a full entertainment complex! Every Friday, this club offers the perfect blend of music, drinks and surprising moments like a fire dancers performance and much more that is just waiting for overtake your senses. After the fire dances, I was so concentrated trying to take a panoramic picture when suddenly noticed that everybody were looking to the roof so I looked up and discovered that on the top of me, into a jail cell,a sexy go-go was dancing like a goodness while the cage was flying across the complete venue.

Other of my preferred moments of the night was when the CO2 freshened to all the people. There is no better feeling than the cold CO2 making you feel like a garden-fresh after you are all sweaty for being dancing like a party animal. Good job The City!

What has set The City apart from other dancing clubs in Cancun is its commitment with their guest to enjoy the music and the night.  Also the lights effects are impeccable and the ambiance is unbeatable. We danced around the entire place –Yes! The three levels and even The City VIP areas– and everybody said they were having such a great night -just like us-.

Before we left I ordered for something sweet to the barman, he mixed some almond liqueur, cherries and something else, he told me he did not remember the name of the drink -I think he invented the mix at the moment- but it was the most amazing beverage I ever tried! So if you know the recipe or the name of a drink like this, please write it down in the comments.

For me, The City is one of the clubbing wonders of Cancun and the whole world. When The City is open, they own the night! Remember it only opens on Friday nights so make your dates work and don’t miss the chance to have a great night at The City Cancun.

 

Posadas: A Mexican tradition

Year 2015 is almost over and if you are in Mexico during December, than for sure you will be part of a Mexican posada party, it doesn’t matter if you organized it or just a guest… You will enjoy the posada!

For those who don’t have a clue about what a Posada is, explanation is simple: a big Mexican Christmas Party where everybody is invited. From December 16th to 24th nine parties are organized to commemorate Mary and Joseph’s searching for refuge in Bethlehem.

Nowadays, posadas are like theme parties and this year the most original is Mandala Cancun Galactic Posada, Party and Star Wars? I am in!

But talking about tradition, there are some basic elements for a real posada:

  1. Pastorela

A Pastorela is like a nativity play with Mary, Joseph, three Wise Men, shepherds and even the devil who tries to to prevent the arrival of all to see baby Jesus.

 

  1. Christmas carols

posada villancicos

Not the classic “we wish you a merry xmas” but a real conversation made song. You ask for posada (lodgment) and your host respond. After you beg for a while you finally get inside the house or venue and the party begins.

 

  1. Tamales y Fruit Punch (with alcohol included)

posada Ponche

The host will feed you with traditional fruit punch, atole (hot corn and masa based Mexican beverage), tamales, pozole and any other Mexican food the host wish to share.

 

  1. Piñata

Hitting a piñata star (the 7 peaks represent the 7 capital sins) while people are singing “Dale dale dale no pierdas el tino”, when the piñata is finally broken everybody try to pick up as many candies as possible.

 

  1. Aguinaldos

Posada Aguinaldo

An Aguinaldo is the posada’s souvenir and consists in a little bag full of candies, fruit and cookies. Perfect for the monchis-after-party!

Antro: Remedio para un corazón roto

Se nos está acabando el año y si el 2015 tu corazón supo lo que es ser partido por la mitad… Entonces es momento de dejar el dolor en el pasado y apresurarte a sanar las heridas -y el ego- para que el Año Nuevo 216 lo inicies lleno de ilusiones y buena vibra.

Desamor
El antro es un remedio efectivo contra el mal de amores ¡Pruébalo!

Mi remedio favorito para un mal de amores es con un 100% de actitud y 100% fiesta. ¿No estás seguro de que antrear sea la solución? Entonces chécate mis motivos de por qué superar a un ex al estilo partyholic:

 

  1. Evitarás quedarte en casa pensando una y otra vez en lo que fue y lo que no será.
  2. Salir de noche te obliga a arreglarte y eso ayuda a tu autoestima.
  3. Estar con amigos que se preocupan por ti te hará sentir valios@.
  4. Chic@s coqueteando contigo te hará sentir guap@ y también ayudará a tu autoestima.
  5. Bailar te ayudará a sentirte mejor, por aquello de las endorfinas que liberas.

 

¿Y el alcohol? Es verdad que el exceso de alcohol puede llevarte a cometer locuras como llamarle a tu ex, pero también es posible que después de fiesta finalmente logres dormir una noche entera –y sin llorar-.

 

Inténtalo, tal vez no l@ olvides definitivamente, pero seguro la pasarás ¡Increíble!
