It's supposedly 18 years old but underage drinking can occur. Many of the resorts are not very strict and "tourist laws" can be somewhat flexible.

Under 18's get a specific type is wristband since it is illegal to serve alcohol to minors under 18. However, you will find that bartenders may often slip some booze to the kiddies anyway, especially to females they find attractive.

Hey ................ I have meet families that have had under 18's with them (15/16 yr olds) and because they have paid adult prices then they were given adult bracelets at check in .....the parents had to tell the reception / check in staff to change them to kids ones...... Bar staff are meant to know the different colours...(adults or child) and go by wot colour bracelet the person has on ......

so it could be that the decision of whether or not u allow any one under 18 with you to get an adult bracelet and therefore be able to be served alcohol could be with u :-)

Just returned from Gran bahia principe Esmerelda and my two 17 1/2 yr old lads were asked their age and asked for proof with their passports and then gave them the kids bands (not impressed under statment)

They still got served alcahol and got into the night club most nights
