Just thought I would warn anyone miti young girls or boys and thinking of letting them out to roam the strip!
We did a wonder up the strip last night (9 women all 30-48) did the usual Irish bars and others along the front. We thought we would try a few in central atlantico as the music was booming and seemed like we would find something fun!
When we went over we were hounded straight away, and I mean pounced on by loads of men, mainly young, mixture of Spanish and English, trying to get us into their bars. We just laughed and said we would make our own minds up. Then went into the middle, as soon as we went outside one bar, a load of Spanish boys tried dragging us around, come in bla bla but right up lo our faces and to close for our liking, there was about 9 of them in total.
Then they grabbed my arm and started pulling us into a bar which was really smoky and horrible looking. I said no, pulled him off and said to the girls lets just leave and get out of here.
I was then basically chased (yes I ran) along the inside of the complex by 3 of them still trying to pull us in.
We are all old enough and ugly enough to look after ourselves, but when we got outside we thought any young girls or boys would feel very intimidated.
Its not the fun place everyone talks about. And the bar owners should be ashamed of themselves doing that to people. Defo not a good experience. I will never wonder back in their!
Stick to main strip.
Also watch out for gangs of young Spanish boys in titos karaoke bar. They sit on different tables around you, staring and smiling, one had his eye on my friends bag, only when we moved seats and put our bags over our shoulders did they move!
Not good and very different from our last visit here!
Just be careful.
