NYE in Playa del Carmen

Every year we find ourselves listening to the same question from everyone who lives or travels to Playa del Carmen. What is there to do in Playa del Carmen for New Years Eve!

This is your go-to guide for the best parties along the Caribbean coast. You will have an Amazing time no matter what you choose!

For an exclusive NYE party: The new and exclusive Thompson Hotel is hosting the party of the year with panoramic rooftop views and live DJ performance by NAS. *Note: Steve Aoki will be playing here on Wed., December 30th.

For a Beach Party: Let’s not forget we are at the Beach! New Years with your toes in the sand at one of the hottest beach clubs in town, Mamitas Beach Club. Dance the night away to music by Les Vagabonds and Manufactured Superstars – choose from a range of options from a formal sit-down dinner to dance floor entry.

For a trendy but local club: La Santanera; On the corner of 5th & 10th streets, Santanera is a trendy local club relatively hidden from tourists; 3 floors of fantastic DJs, great atmosphere and an awesome terrace to dance the night away; bring in the New Year with music from Jeff Gold, Barbie Rush, Maus, Memo Insua, Slow Hands and Nick Monaco!

For a once in a lifetime NYE beach party/festival: Dance away 2015 with music from top class electronic music artists from all over the world at the Maya Hearts Festival in Tulum! Check details here

For the ultimate tourist party: Coco Bongo goes all out almost every night and NYE is definitely no exception; they’re having a NYE party with unlimited premium drinks from 10pm – 4am for $120 USD per person; package includes: entrance, shows and a special edition t-shirt; head here for a night full of all-out shows, drinks and endless entertainment; if you opt for this party I’d recommend booking tickets here ASAP.

To dance the night away: Mandala is one of the most popular dance clubs in Playa playing the top hits; it’s located right on the corner of 12th and 1st with an open venue downstairs to watch the massive NYE street party.

For a chill beach party lounge: Zenzi, a cool beach lounge, is holding a special NYE dinner including some delicious seafood and meat dishes, dessert and sparkling wine; bring in the New Year right on the beach with live music, party favors and a fun and less rowdy crowd ($1700 pesos per person), contact Zenzi at 984.803.5738 or email info@zenzi-playa.com to secure your reservation.

For a trendy beach party: Canibal Royal is a popular local beach club with a trendy European vibe; bring in the New Year in front of the water with music by Flying Circus, Carl Craig, Audiofly, Lake People and more. To reserve your spot, contact info@canibalroyal.com.

For a unique, masquerade yacht party: Join H2OH Cruises for a midnight masquerade at sea setting sail from Puerto Aventuras. Adults only! The evening includes an unlimited open bar, hors d’oeuvres, free wifi on board and more! For more information, click here.

For the best NYE fine-dining: If you’re looking for an exquisite NYE dinner, look no further than my fave three restaurants in town: Plank, Sur Steakhouse and Bovinos. *Note: Be sure to contact the restaurants directly ASAP to reserve your table.

Let’s start 2016 in the best way!
