If you're not invited to the "cool" house party then you're a nobody and may as well not have gone to the beach. They apparently change outfits three times a day there. Reminds me of parts of LA. The town is a bit odd because it is entirely sponsored by Citibank and Fiat. Everrrrrrything there is sponsored. The second beach was Punta del Diablo and it was much ...
