    I hear it's really boring at night here at this resort, did anyone try to go over to the Riu at night and enjoy there shows?

    I am not a partier so this place suited me fine. There is a beach party every Thursday that plays loud dancing music. Some of the evening shows were very entertaining. Bucerias is only a short cab ride away with lots of bars.
    Do they charge your credit upon check-in?

    There is no casino at the resort. There is a large casino down the road, probably a 20 minute cab ride away.
