Our recommendations

This restaurant and bar is a nice local place with stylish design vibe. Caguameria is a good place for a casual evening. It is close to 5th Avenue but you don’t get the busy, packed or tourist feel that you do on 5th Avenue sometimes.

We recommend this place if you are looking for somewhere different in Playa Del Carmen, for those looking for modern and authentic Mexican food and a place to discover the great drinks of Mexico. These include beers, mezcal and tequilas.

This is also a good place for a group. Contact them to reserve a section.
