Hi All,

Ive been nominated to be best man and organise a stag do for a friend, We have come down to 2 choices

1 Fuengirola - cheaper but will there be anything going on in early december?
2 Marbella - will be more expensive but probably better located with more going on

So there you see my problem.

There will be 5 of us going but I don't know what the night life is like in fuengirola or how much it is going to cost in taxis if we get there and its dead and end up going into marbella/puerto banus every night anyway.

I pretty much know what you get in Marbella/Banus so i suppose the question is, is fuengirola any good for a stag do in december ? One other thing is a couple of the party are on a limited budget and I dont want to be buying rounds all night at 8+ Euros a drink

Any help would be much appreciated

Yeah im sure it is, Shame its a **** hole
Well, thats not actually true at the time of year you are talking about. Granted you dont want to be there in July & August, but in fact apart from maybe the British end, it can be quite a pleasant place in the old town down by the South Beach ... and anyway, you're going on a stag do!!! :D

Anyway ... it was just a suggestion

stag do

don't know your age group or preferences. we went to Alicante had a great time but we were oldish - 40's as a group and were happy to drink all day (in moderation) and then go out till about 4am.

Alicante proved to be a fantastic city and great weekend.

No brits/drunken yobs. The local bars and people were fantastic and looked after us well. we were all a bit drunk but that just makes us loud and laugh a lot. And pour sherry everywhere when trying to drink out of the jar thingy - mind you the bloke in the bar was just as bad when we asked for a demo.

It helps to have a couple of people happy to order and arrange stuff in Spanish coz that is what they all speak there (funnily enough).

top spot and good memories.

Don't go there however, if all you want to do is get largered up and unnecessary.

I have friends here who organise these "events" PM if you want details

If all you want is beer, golf and s.x all will be readily available in both locations.

Can't you persuade him about the error of his ways! At 51 he definitely should know better
