Bar Ranita-Playa Del Carmen’s friendly yellow bar

Bar Ranita Playa Del Carmen

Bar Ranita is a friendly and comfortable bar on 10th Street in the center of Playa Del Carmen. What makes it comfortable is the fact it has tables, sofas, and the bar to sit at. The ambience is nice because there is no loud music and there is a garden with soft lights to sit in.

This bar is nice to have a calm evening out or start your night here. It is close to many of restaurants like the food market, La Famiglia, Ula Gula, Babe’s Noodles, and Yala middle eastern food across the street. It is also close to some other bars and Santanera night club is just down the street if you want to stay out even later.

In the winter months you will notice more snowbirds (expats) that come to this bar. Other times of the year it is a mixed crowd with many divers and north Americans.

Prices are about 80 pesos for cocktails and 30 pesos for beers.

Bar Ranita does charitable work with the community. Each year they do a three legged race to different bars to raise money for the Playa Del Carmen Fire Department. Teams of two people have one leg duct taped together  and they have to go on a route to different bars to have a drink and get back to Bar Ranita. It is a fun way to raise money for a good cause. Below is a video of the event we made.


Open 1:00pm-2:00am Everyday.
