With summer vacations just around the corner, it's hard not to dream about checking-in to a tropical resort, with a giant swimming pool and a fully stocked bar of strawberry daiquiri's and piña coladas.
Perhaps the only thing even more tantalizing is checking into a hotel which has a pool with a built-in bar, where you can swim right up to get your cocktail of choice.
Tantalizing as the idea sounds, however, you might want to think twice before partaking in a swim-up-bar.
In a video which has now received over four million views, TikToker Two food piggies (@twofoodpiggies) shared why future travelers might want to avoid spending too much time in a swim-up bar.
Accompanied by the overlay "pro tip: avoid the pool with the swim up bar", the 8-second video captured a number of patrons enjoying a drink or two at the swim-up bar at the resort Two food piggies were staying at in Baja, California.
But as they shared in the voice over, things were not quite as tranquil as they appeared to be.
"Vacation pro-tip, do not hang out in the pool where the swim-up bar is."
"There was literally intoxicated guests admitting that they were peeing in the pool here."They further expressed horror at the unsanitary situation in the video's caption.
"One girl didn't understand why some people were leaving the the pool to use the washroom."
Surprisingly, not many viewers of the video seemed fazed, with many sharing how they almost expect people to pee in the pool.
A few even freely admitted to doing so themselves.
Though not everyone felt that using the pool as an efficient way of avoiding the bathroom was a hygienic or thoughtful thing to do, and said as much in the comments.
Multiple surveys revealed the average pool is likely to contain as much as 20 gallons of urine.
And 19 percent of people participating in those surveys admitted to urinating in a pool at least once.
But as Two food piggies later shared in a follow up video, those statistics are not enough to ever convince them to use a swim-up bar ever again.
Splicing herself over a screenshot of the same resort pool, they began the video by admitting people peeing in the pool is, unfortunately, a fairly common occurrence.
But she went on to stress swim-up bars should be avoided, nonetheless.
"Well, for instance, there's people sitting there for like four to six hours without leaving and consuming alcoholic beverages."
"They don't really need to go anywhere, they just want to save their spot at that pool there, vs. another pool there on the Riu property, where people are going in for a couple minutes and leaving."
"So the example is, would you rather be in a pool where 20 to 30 are peeing in, or would you rather go to a pool where maybe two to five people are peeing in it?"
An interesting question indeed.
But based on the majority of the comments to her earlier video, it seems for most people, sitting in someone else's urine is a very small price to pay to enjoy a tropical rum drink.
