Basic Spanish phrases for a Cancun nightclub
If you come to Cancun this summer break you will be surprised at how many people can speak English, and not only at the hotels, but also at the convenience stores and small flea markets. However, there is always a chance to generate some empathy, either in the merchant that may have a bit of room for discount for that craft you are interested in, or maybe to connect with a waiter at the nightclub or even who knows, that latina girl at the pool that could become a summer break love. And that empathy is made, by speaking one of the most romantic tongues ever: Spanish. No wonder Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria and Sofia Vergara speak it, if its not romantic, at least is hot.
First, some phrases to connect with other people:
“Hola, me llamo ()” = Hello, my name is (), where you should insert your name in the parenthesis – its pronounced “Hoh lah, meh jee am oh" (). You usually accompany this with your
“¿Cómo estás?” = How are you?, which is pronounced “Come-oh hez tahs”, it’s a nice phrase to start a conversation at a nightclub even if you are not going to keep on speaking in Spanish.
“Me gustas” = I fancy you, which is pronounced “Meh goose tass”. This is already a declaration of a serious interest in the girl or the guy, so its not a phrase everyone would take seriously if you just get to them and tell them so (although, we know this is a nightclub, so people come to know new people and are ready to jump at a possible hook up if it arises). It is usually said after you talked for a few minutes and you are enjoying the other ones company, and your new acquaintance seems to be doing the same.
Now, we share with you some fresh phrases to use at the nightclub:
“Te doy más al final” = “I will give you more when I leave”. The pronunciation is “The dewey mass alfie nahl”, and essentially you have to pronounce it when you give a first tip to a waiter when you arrive at the nightclub and start asking for drinks, telling him that more tip awaits him if he gives him a good service. This is useful specially in all inclusive nightclubs where waiters will prefer to serve drinks to good mannered people that seem to be willing to leave a good tip at the end.
“Me siento mal” = “I don’t feel ok”. This is an important one, especially if you are in a nightclub and you can´t find your friends, or if you went to the nightclub by yourself. It is pronounced “Meh see ent ohmall” and you can use it if you really feel wrong, perhaps due to having low pressure, being unable to breath, or other symptoms.
“Dame otra” = “Another one”, this is essential if you really liked a drink and have to make yourself heard between a crowd. You pronounce it “Dah-meh autrah”and it essentially is used to have another drink like the one the waiter just picked up
