Hi there, Id like to start off by saying a big thanks to the forum, Ive gleaned so much info from here its enough im sure for 5 trips to Cancun! This is my first post and I dont want to make it too long so ill get straight to the point. We are 3 lads from London UK travelling to Cancun via Miami. We hit cancun on the 4th March and Leave on the 11th March. My question as you already know is about VIP Passes. Now before you mention it I did do a search in the forum however none of the posts I found seemed to answer our specific needs hence this post. Our query is quite simple, do we bother investing in a so called VIP bracelet, and if so who do we buy it from, should we bother buying it online or wait till we get to the resort. From my research I have found only 2 companies seemingly selling them online, one is STS and the other is student city. STS is priced at $199 while student city is slightly more expensive from what I can tell. The thing is, after reading this forum there seems to be 3 views, one is to simply by the bracelet and follow the huge crowds, the second is to wait till you get to the resort and then approach the entertainment officer for the hotel and go with them while the third is to go with the flow and to just buy tickets either at the door or just before the event. We are staying at the Oasis so im guessing we will be surrounded by spring breakers, Since this is likely to be our first and only spring break holiday you will appreciate that we want to have the best possible time. We are fairly independent travellers and intend to do the sightseeing tours during the day like the Mayan ruins etc. However we are also party animals by night so a good combo of bars and clubs is also a must! If someone could help put us on the right path of how to plan our nights to be above all fun and also economical that would be great. From what I understand, even if we buy a bracelet for $199 and only use it half the time that would be worth it. Of course we intend to tip once in any venue to get a good table and any waiter who is willing to serve us. Any help and comments would be hugely appreciated, and once again thanks for this informative and lively forum! Its a great way to get excited for what's going to be one amazing trip! And apologies for rambling on for so long, as the sole organiser of this trip you can see I'm anxious to make it all work well!
