Never had a problem buying Tortuga rum. They even sell it here in Miami.

I'm not much of a rum drinker but during one of our cruises I did purchase the Tortuga sipping rum and enjoyed it trememdously.
It was great as a sipping and made a fine mixed drink as well. I, also, miss the old location and going's on at Carlos and Charlies.

OK, I have never been to Senor Frog's or Carlos and Charlie's (don't point and laugh). Based upon the posts, it appears the primary draw is to get excrement faced and wear balloon hats. Besides the obvious fun in that, what other draw is there to Senor Frog's and Carlos and Charlies? Is it much like Papa's and Beer in Ensenada and Rosarito?

Typical experience at either of these bars (they are both owned by the same outfit)....screaming DJ and either recorded music or a band blasting at max volume. A woman in hot pants blowing a whistle as she wanders the bar dispensing shooters from a bottle of some concoction. Big margaritas and unremarkable food. And of course the clown who makes the balloon hats (my buddy!).

And don't forget the t-shirt shop. Oh, and if schools are out there will be several tables of 18-somethings getting blitzed and having speed drinking contests.

Getting off in Cozumel, you almost trip on it. But I don't see it as a destination, only a place to grab a couple dos equis beers.

Fairly similar to Papas and Beer, then. Except it's the guys walking around in hot pants dispensing shooters, blowing whistles, and playing it up big time for the gringos. (just kidding on the hot pants). I was surprised by the strength of this one guy who was able to hoist my frame dang near to his shoulder level. It was especially fun watching them turn the "stuffy, well dressed, I'm too sophisticated for this" women upside down only to expose certain types of undergarments, or lack thereof.

You had to walk up some stairs to get to the original Carlos and Charlies. That was always fun watching inebriated people going down them. They give you a lot of popcorn that was not to be consumed, it's intention was to be used as projectiles at other patrons. If more than one ship was in port, there was the inevitable drink-off between the ships. I was always a willing participant but only won once. Reward for winning... a free beer. Reward for losing... a free beer. I just miss the feel of the old place. Now it's like walking into a respectable restaurant. Alas, life goes on.
