Have you ever thought about using the SEARCH button? It's located at the top of the screen, to the right of FAQ and the left of Memberlist. :?

Calle 11 between Avenidas 8 and 10. Right across the street from Idem, next door to Eros.

The CRT VIP Map has the location of our favorite venues in a PDF/JPG format you can print and carry with you. The map is found on the first page after you login, in the list of links in the left hand side frame.

Oh and welcome to CRT!

I believe he asked where it was, not what you did when you found it.

The directions above are correct. Typically a taxi will not know it by name. The taxi will know Bar Idem, directly across the street. Write bar idem down and show it to the driver. Our pronunciation of Idem is difficult for them. One of my recent customers ended up at Motel Eden on the other side of town and had no idea where he was.

The taxis also know Tin Jo restaurant which is one block north of Idem/Relax.

If you are walking, go out the front door of Del Ray (facing Monkey Bar)
make a left, walk past the Colonial Casino and make the first right. Walk about five blocks and you are there. You will pass La Esquina de Buenos Aries and Tin Jo befoe you get there. There is no sign, only a glass door with some neon. Ring the buzzer. If you walk past Eros and Idem you have gone too far.

Walking in daytime is fine, I would not walk there at night.

If taking a taxi, easiest thing is to ask the taxi driver, "Do you know where Pucho's (*) is"? :twisted:

For some reason (sure :D) they ALL know Pucho's, yet many have no clue where Bar Idem, Eros or Manos Traviesas (what the ticos call Relax) is.

Relax is on the same block as Pucho's, almost next door in fact.

(*) gay bar

MH had me worry there for a second... :D

It's true, on my first trip I found HLH, but didn;t read the part about ringing the bell, so I thought it was closed. Walked back to the SL, and then decided to flag a cab and take me to relax. The map I had was the old version and didn't have relax, bit had Idem and Eros, cab driver said Eros?? ok I know, drove just a couple of blocks, actually the other end of the block where HLH is, I think it was Muses, but I don't really know cus there was no sign. I have seen the pictures of Relax and knew I was in the wrong place. Wonder if it would be easier just giving out the streets intersections, make it to the corner that you can locate on the map and just walt the rest of the way.

Can't help thinking why the cab drivers wouldn't know the location of a MP, but are familiar with Pucho's?

2 reasons:
Puchos is a old establishment, and an oddity so to speak! have you never noticed that everywhere even the very straight people always seem to know where the gay places are located.

the taxistas know where the MPs are, especially the one(s) they want to take you to where they get a propina. As for as i know, Diego (owner of Relax) does not tip the taxistas thus they do not know where it is!!

By the way I got an offer at Relax the other day that I have got to go back for-- Carolina, Alison (Carolina's 18 yo little sister), and their 18 yo cute as she can be (and new) cousin, ALL 3 TOGETHER!!! DON'T SEND FLOWERS!!!--"DONATE" TO THE "HELP THE POOR PUTAS" FUND :lol: :lol: :lol: :twisted: :wink:
