Welcome 2 Ibiza is an American action comedy film about a young American girl who inherits a rundown bar and then gets involved in a hostage rescue drama. Gary Busey headlines the film, which was shot on location on the Spanish island of Ibiza in 2002 by David Winters. The film was released in Spain and Thailand.


Lauren (Athena Cansino), a young woman from America, learns that her Uncle Sam (director David Winters) has been missing at sea, and that as a result she inherits his beach bar on the Mediterranean island of Ibiza. When she arrives, she meets Angelito, a young handsome artist. They go to the bar, only to find it in terrible shape.

Depressed, Lauren returns to town where she meets two more Americans, (Beth and Marilyn) and Crazy Larry. Beth was currently working in a bar, and Marilyn, is a passionate young dancer who was fired after an altercation with a group of drunk buffoons. Crazy Larry, a wacky British DJ was also recently fired for accidentally throwing up on his boss.

Together, the four decide to renovate the bar and get the business running again. Meanwhile, Beth's ex, Nick, has come from the United States to try to get back together with her. They later discover that Angelito's father is being held captive by Cortez, a local gangster (Busey).
