If you are looking to party, Playa del Carmen is a great place to go. The 5th avenue “strip” is alive at night and clubs and bars are dotted all along this strip. There is a bar that caters to every taste here so we don’t particularly recommend any single club cafe or bar. It does not take long to walk up and down fifth and the many side streets so you can cover a lot of distance in an afternoon doing recognizance, picking the place you would like to visit at night.
You can also easily walk from club to club in the course of a night starting at one end of 5th avenue and ending up at the other end. If you are staying a week that is more than ample time to check out every bar in Playa if you so desire.
Drinking on the street is prohibited, however the police will not harass you if you are under control. You can sit on the curb and drink a beer, casually walk around and most convenient stores sell beer.
Dress for clubs is anything from casual to full-tilt.
The main headquarters for entertainment. This large high-level club is the place to go for big shows, non stop drinks and of course, a good dose of fun. Just like Cancun’s Coco Bongo, it features a variety of acrobatic and entertainment shows that will amaze clubgoers.
Catch a slice of modern Mexican urban scene. Themed around wrestling and subculture, this club has some of the hottest dj’s and a great terrace environment. Enjoy the low fi ambience and laid back atmosphere.
Recently renovated and rebranded, the Dubai Club (formerly Bali) has one of the best sound and lighting system, as well as a bunch of crazy effects and a wild atmosphere.
This longtime favorite is still one of the most fun spots in the Playa scene. Located right on the beach, the place is sure to provide one of the most unforgettable experiences during your stay.
