I just got back from PCB. Let me tell you it was the time of my life.
Some things you might want to know to make sure you have as much fun as I did:
First of all get the Panamaniac card! Yes, it is true that you can get in to most of the clubs for $5 from 5-7. Yet this is a very difficult task. First of all it is very difficult to leave the beach with all the hot bodies walking arround. Most people spend the entire day on the beach drinking and having fun. Second the $5 cover only lasts from 5-7. So even if you are in line once it hits 7 no more $5 cover. The lines for $5 cover are very long, (in general the line to everything is long). The Panamaniac allows you to get into clubs for free throughout the evening. It also gets you a few free hours of drinking. So buy the card!
Second, those of you staying at the Summit they are very strict about a few things. 1. NO GUESTS!!!! I MEAN NO GUESTS!!!! You have a wrist band they check it every time you come back in through the front or come in from the beach. So it makes it very difficult to bring back anyone. 2. DO NOT THROW anything off the balcony! They will catch you and kick you out. Example (throw a beer can off the balcony they will pick it up go to the room they think it came from and compare it to the rest of the cans. The last 4 digits on the bottom of the can match the rest of the case!)
Third, the Summit is still a great place to stay. They will let you stay up and party as loud as you want all night. The rooms are very nice. The beach behind the Summit always has the most people haning out. Right by the Summit is a stage where they give all sorts of free stuff away. Don't worry about not being able to bring people back. Most of the other places will let you right in. For those of you who are worried the other place that looked like a good one to stay at is called the Howard Johnston.
So one day make sure you get to the beach behind La Vela it is a great time. They have all sorts of contests and free stuff. Also, stop in at the HP tent and check your email and find our how to win the $2500 it is really easy!
Next be pacient all the lines are long to get into the clubs. My suggestion is that since PCB is ok with open containers take some beer and wait in line. Drinks cost a lot of money inside so you might as well drink all the way up to the door.
If your under 21 be careful. The police are out in full force. I was walking with a case back to my room at 12 one day and some undercover cop pulled me over and checked my ID.
Make sure you go to the Foam Party on Thursday night at Hammerhead Freds! It was the best night by far. By the end of the night very few people had clothes on! PS bring one waterproof camera for the Foam Party. I wish I did!
Well I hope this is some help for all of you who still get to look forward to going to PCB. I know you will have the time of your life! Feel free to reply to this thread with any questions. I will do my best to answer all of them.
