Subject: Iguala Mex. Recently I was on a business trip buying silver in Taxco Mex. There are a couple of boring spots in Taxco "Cupa de champagne" and a unnamed place next door. Cupa is a small take out place with a couple of 8s and a few 5s. The place next door is eat in but the menu was very lacking but got a bit better on the weekend. (prices were 300 pesos $35 plus 20 pesos $2.30 for the room) Since taking them to the hotel was out of the question and I got the feeling the 8s at Cupa were looking for Mexico City prices (1000-1500 pesos $115-$170) I decided to hire a cab for a few hours. For 200 pesos ($23) a cab will take you round trip to the red lite areas of Iguala and wait for you or acompany you into the bars. (if you speak spanish some of the cabbies are cool) It's a bit of an adventure getting to Iguala which is about 30-45 mins. strait down the hill on a very windy road with lots of animals, tell the driver to be tranquilo if he's pushing it. There are 2 places in Iguala, and I found them to be quite representative of the duality that is now occurring in the mexican bar girl scene. The first one was a "strip club" which always seem to have this Egyptian motif going on and are sort of a poor man's version of a U.S. Gentleman club. (except for the prices) Most of the girls were 5s at best with a continuous strip show on stage. The waiters were hot to bring one of these "girls" to our table so they could ply us for expensive drinks ($2-$5) with which I politely but firmly told them ."No!" After 20 mins. of looking, I found the best one out of the lot, an 8 1/2 , (it seems that at all these sort of places I noticed the girls, especially the finer ones, are hanging out hustling their local regular suckers for drinks and dances and hence it is difficult to even get a dance out of them) and bought some private dance tickets off her (50 pesos $6 a song) . We then proceeded into this dark and somewhat dirty booth where she did some hot n sweaty and quite tasty dances (fully nude...eventually) But for what in the end cost $24 it wasn't what I really was looking for! I asked her what some dancing in the sheets cost and she gave me a laughable price of 1400 pesos ($161! remember this was Iguala not Acapulco) I decided that these girls were more interested in bleeding the suckers than fuckin for a buck. (So seems to be the case I ran into in all these new wanabe gringo (st)rip off joints, lets hope this doesn't spread to far to fast in ol mexico!) So off to the next place we went, this seemed to be a compound with about 5or6 bars and definitely more of what I was looking for ! We sniffed around a bit and settled on a large dance hall style cantina with a fairly large choice of girls, sitting in a line of chairs, at one end of the room. (in looking around the bars the doormen/waiters were trying their best to hustle us to a table, probably since I was the only gringo for miles, again I suggest you just politely but firmly ignore them, like a pesky fly, and have a good look before you make a commitment since, for me at least, the meter was running) After we got our drinks I realized the girls were self service so I eyed one curvatious 7 (most of the women at this compound were 4s-7s with maybe a few 8s but most had good attitudes, probably because a gringo means real money to them) and took her to our table for a drink (10-20 pesos $1.15-$2.30) after a few drinks and dances I asked her how much (the girls in these places rarely hustled you for sex and usually were surprised that I was not put off by the price of 300 pesos $35, a lot of money for a local I guess but to me a lot better than $161!) she said 300pesos + 50 pesos for the room. The room was at best somewhat clean but the bed was alright and it had a fan. She was fun, though professional, but did not seem to be in too much of a hurry, though someone did knock on the door after about 45 mins. I went back a week later and found myself one of those 8s she was also big fun at the same price. Remember this was on a week night so quality may go up on the weekend, Definitely recommended especially if you speak a little spanish and/or are in a group. have fun & Viva Mexico!
