I'm going next week and it's my first time down there so I don't know what to expect. Has anyone ever been there?

Just flash your tits a lot and sleep with every third guy you see. You should fit in fine, then.

You should expect dirty gulf water, sun, and plenty of dudes ogling your back bruises. They'll assume you're kinky so take some mace.

I can tell you one thing. Don't get drunk and get inked. Couple of guys I know came back with tats that they severely regretted. Sure I mean, getting Poon-Master on your back sounds like a good idea at the time...

Its kind of a trashy beach but can be a good place to party.

Might have some problems with tropical storm Emily though.

I spent several spring breaks down there and had a hell of a time. Unfortinately, outside of spring break, I think it's a pretty boring town. Maybe things have changed since I was there, but most the locals said it was lame if it wasn't March.

sounds like pretty good advice.

So so beaches, with lots of sea weed. The water is actually cleaner than at any other beach I have been to along the Gulf Coast.

And Mexico is near by.....

Does SPI still have all those damn jellyfish in the surf? IIRC, they were Man-O-Wars; big suckers too.

Be sure to do the obligatory "woo hoo" when taking your shirt off, or announcing to the crowd that you're drinking, or doing shots.

Does anyone have a "Girls Gone Wild" travelogue for her to review?

Used to live about an hour away when I was younger. From what I could tell, the beach we went to wasn't much of a fun place. It was fun because I was a kid, but I doubt it would be fun now. I still remember the beauty of the offshore oil rigs standing firm in the distance. Stepping on the occasional lump of congealed oil, and poking the huge dead man-o-wars that washed ashore.

Of course that was 13 years ago.

It is, considering it's Texas after all. Could be worse; it could have been Galveston.

I lived in Edinburg TX for a year, and it was like 1 1/2 hours from Padre. i went there every weekend, and its pretty boring but the beach isnt that bad.
heres a secret, when on the beach, go out in the water like 40-50 yard and theres a sand bar thats like waist deep. the waves are huge out there and great for boogie boarding. the population there is like 2000 until spring break, then its like 40,000.
ive never heard of a direct hit from a hurricane down there though, nice beach town, kinda like pensacola.
Have Fun!!

I've been there. Its not bad for a 2-3 day get-away. Less expensive midwest beach. Grainy sand. We just hung out at the Sheraton pool/Tiki bar when we wanted sun. Theres a few bars located close by thats not too bad. I thought driving down to Matamoros was cool. Park on the U.S. side and walk across the border into Mexico. There is some cheap stuff located in the shops. Most you can bargain for at a good price. Don't give them what they ask for unless its liquers and prescription drugs.
Also go there during the day. You want to leave Mexico before the sun goes down. So leave ample time for yourself to check stuff out when you go there.

Cool...thanks for the info. I'm staying with a friend in Mission, so we'll only be on the Island for 3 nights. Should be fun, it'll be something new.
