Sunday Funday Pool Crawl in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua
I stayed in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, for eight nights. That was, maybe, seven nights longer than I needed to but, in that time, I went to some beaches, went to some bars, had a little fun. Really, though, the only reason I stayed in San Juan del Sur for as long as I did was because I wanted to stay for Sunday, and, therefore, stay for the infamous, debaucherous, weekly event backpackers drool over: the Sunday Funday Pool Crawl.
Sunday. Funday. Pool. Crawl.
Sunday Funday in San Juan del Sur is kind of like a bar crawl in that you spend the day going to different locations and getting really drunk. And by really drunk I mean really drunk. But, unlike your typical bar crawl, you spend the day soaking wet. Because, instead of visiting different bars, you visit three different pools. And that’s pretty awesome.
Basically the day went like this: go to pool, drink (a lot), get thrown into the pool by one of my friends. Repeat.
We started out the day at Hotel Ana Mar, a hotel that was a bit out from town’s the main strip but had a large, winding, clear pool, a DJ, and, of course, beer for purchase. After who knows how long there soaking our feet in the pool, wading in the water, and drinking, the party then progressed to Naked Tiger Hostel. Naked Tiger has a reputation for being the most party hostel of the party hostels in San Juan del Sur. And, being well into the afternoon, it was where the pool crawl started turning from chill to crazy.
We ended our Sunday Funday in Nicaragua with a giant party at Hostel Pachamama. Luckily, this was where I was staying so I was able to sneak away at one point, when I’d had a bit more than enough, to take a nap.
Of course, that nap ended when a guy I don’t know crawled into my bunk bed and tried to make out with me and then dumped his drink on me and my sheets.
And then, over the nap, the night ended with me going to a bar without any pants on.
Because, sometimes, that’s how I roll…
