Chiquita Banana

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant

Quote:
The Chiquita Banana is an Oceanside restaurant located on the beach just footsteps from the breaking surf of the Caribbean Sea. A proper dress code is required and reservations are necessary. The atmosphere was romantic to luxurious with the wait-staff in tuxedo shirts, bowties and slacks. The host showed us to our table sitting on the open deck overlooking the ocean with an incredible nighttime view of the "Golden Mile" of Cancun beaches. The sounds of the crashing surf accompanied our table as we overlooked an elegant menu of select seafoods. Service was impressive and comparative to a four or five star restaurant complete with Maitre’d and full service bar. The waiter suggested a M...Read More

Although we stayed in an all inclusive resort, we wanted to see what the rest of the strip had to offer.

On previous vacations we have visited RAINFOREST CAFE's and wanted to add the Cancun restaurant to our list of visited locations.

We stopped in after a morning of shopping and caught some lunch. The atmosphere was incredable as are all RAINFOREST CAFE's with robotic animals surrounding the dining area and a thunderstorm brewing overhead.

We spent on average $30 USD for a couple Corronas and an enjoyable lunch. It was a nice addition to our list of chain locations.

Bull Dog Cafe

Attraction

Quote:
The resort got a group of guests together each night and introduced a different nightclub each and every night. They offered a special admission price with an all you can drink offer. We went to the Bull Dog Cafe. The club was in walking distance from the resort, however there was one-way transportation provided with your special admission. We got there around 11pm and were greeted with a friendly pat down before entering. Once inside there was a big open dance floor and current dance music was pumping through the sound system. The group had a reserved section and two private waiters to get our drink orders. For me the most impressive part of the evening was the full bottle of Jose Cu...Read More

Last-Minute Vacation Planning

Story/Tip

I have done a lot of traveling and have been to many wonderful places, some of which I get to write journals about. I have had okay trips, really good trips, and "I can’t wait to do it again" trips. However, if there is one thing I have learned in my travels, it is that you make your own experiences and vacation what it is. You can make an okay experience one to remember by proper planning. We have found that the best two way to plan a memorable vacation are to spend hours researching and trying to find the lowest fares when booking on the Internet or giving all of your vacation likes and dislikes to ...Read More
