Places To Drink
A great man loves great beer, am I right? I thought so.
1. Carmen Beer Company
For all men that love beer and craft beer head on over to the Carmen Beer Company. It’s the only brewery here in Playa del Carmen, The beers great, the foods awesome, and the view into the brewery with the stainless steel tanks is pretty special.
Caiman is a popular, lively, cheap bar just off 5th avenue.
The atmosphere is super chilled, and they often have great music playing or live events.
Prices are cheap, the waitresses are lovely and the service is perfect.
This particular bar is perfect for first dates or meeting new people. Every night of the week you are guaranteed to see people sitting outside, laughing, joking, and generally just having a great time!
Women In Playa Del Carmen
As we’ve already discussed the women in Playa are the creme de la creme from all over the world.
If you are looking for a relationship, or to simply hook up and have fun, or even just meet new people, my advice would be to try and meet them in the day. It’s super easy in the day to get chatting to lots of people. You can meet them in quirky coffee shops, bars, or at the beach.
At night time women may get a little extra cautious especially if you’re in a club and there are lots of creepy guys around, they are a lot less likely to give you their number.
So, try to meet them in the day and head out at night together. That way you get to know each other a little bit first before hitting 12th, or somewhere a little more low-key if clubbing isn’t your thing.
You won’t be short on nightlife in Playa del Carmen. Every night is a Friday night here.
If you want to party, a good place to start would be on 12th. This particular street is filled with all the best clubs and bars.
Coco Bongo is a must while you are here. You have got to experience the show that everyone raves about at least once.
It is more than just your average nightclub – it is a Las Vegas style show in a disco-like environment. Prepare for extravagant visuals on giant screens, the latest music, as well as the favorites from the 60’s, 70’s and more.
