You're talking about the good 'ol days when gay nightlife was at its best. As a matter of  fact, Paul and I met at the beach bar an old gay guy who has been coming to P.R. for the past 40 years! Even he said that those were the best gay days of his life. We even talked about all of those sex related places that you mentioned. During the 80's all the clubs were moving well and "Bachelor's" was the best dance club in the Carribean. People would come from many parts of the world just to dance to the conga beats. Star's and Bachelor's were the best clubs of San Juan. Neither exist anymore.
 That pricey hotel  is in the town of Rincon (next to my town). A beautiful hotel appealing to European tourist's and the rich crowd. Many French tourist's go there and you have to speak this language if you want to work as a waiter. It has no phones, no TVs, no radio's permitted, and no kids are allowed. Only the sound of the wind and waves is what you will hear here. A great romantic place for couples.
  The drag queens in that decade WERE Fierce! Many made a living out of it in other countries, also. Wow! You really made me remember those days...too bad they are long gone. But we can always have fun else where...I don't go to these clubs in San Juan frequently because they are far from me, but when I do go, I have a ball like the one I just had with Paul! San Juan is always fun and exciting!

I'm glad I was traipsing yearly down to PR when it was fun.  I think I've stated previously to you that the last time I was there was in 1999.  Once I had a serious partner around that time for a few years my Caribbean jaunts were out of the question, and after the intense break up I never picked the habit up again.

I'd still go back at some point, hopefully with a new husband and we'll stay at that hotel in Rincon! :)  I stayed at an equally nice place in Vieques called Inn on the Blue Horizon back in '97.

Oh, and I *LOVE* the "no kids" policy.

OK, I'm home now, and freezing! I nearly died of frostbite getting to my car at JFK airport last nite! I stayed an extra night because I didn't want to come back in the horrible weather NY was having Thursday!!

Catman is a sweetie!! He and his BF picked me up at the airport and took me out to the local bars Sat night, and we got in late! Catman took me to Old San Juan on Sunday and we had a beautiful day touring the city~

Once they left me at the hotel Sunday night at 8pm, I needed a nap , desperately. Unfortunately I never made it down to the hotel bar's best nite as I slept thru til 7 am!! Catman wore me out~~  ;D

I had a great trip. I met some great people, and hope to go back same time each year like they do. The Atlantic Beach hotel rooms leave ALOT to be desired, but their location cannot be beat!

I didn't want to leave. I'm definitely staying longer next time. I love casinos, and there were plenty to choose from!  I think I broke even!!  Next time I'm going to side trip to see the side of the island where Catman lives!

Everything is right there, I didn't need to get a car. Great gym down the street from the hotel (only went once, of course, but OMG the guys in there were HOT!). The trip did make me remember I have to get in some serious gym time again.

I even finished a book while tanning on the beach!

Catman took lots of pics of me in OSJ.  I don't know if I'll leave it up here for too long. But just to show Richard how much I appreciate all he did for me, I will post one! (Mind you I hadn't been on the beach yet, so no tan~)

Men? lots of gay couples vacationing there. Monday night at Juniors -Harcore Stripper show- $3 cover!! Well worth it!!  ;)

This place has alot more to it than Ft Lauderdale or SoBe, though Florida does have a nude beach~ :-\



P.S. I was squinting as the sun was very bright!! I also had to resize the pic so it looks a little off~

EDITED-as I read on in the forums, something is going on around here with this CSi thing, so until I figure it out, I removed my pics

The first year I stayed at the Atlantic Beach Hotel they were a bit more relaxed than they later became about "guests" -- I swear, back then it was like a brothel.  So much scandal.  I think one Tea Dance I must have had four different guys in my room, one who insisted on pouring cocaine down his foreskin.  And another tied me with his belt to the bed's headboard and I yanked it out of the wall it was bolted to.  Thank goodness we were able to just shove it back in and I didn't get charged for room damage.

I think they used to have a hot tub up on the roof but I only recall that being opened one year.  Is that old man still running the place and walking around in an endless amount of colored espadrilles?
