Caguameria Restaurant and Bar
Update: August 2018 The Caguameria is not closed but is open as a Mexican beer/restaurant.
We have always liked the cool design of this bar and restaurant in Playa Del Carmen. Caguameria has always been more of local place to go and many tourist did not know it has great Mexican food and drinks. We wanted to show you just what this place is all about.
Located just a block off 5th Avenue and the center of town, this cool open air restaurant and bar will give you an authentic feel for being in Mexico. You can get great modern Mexican cuisine and drinks here. This place makes for a great night out in Playa Del Carmen.
The name Caguameria comes from the large bottles of Mexican beer called caguamas. So this bar and restaurant is the place for beer. This holds true because they have a wide selection of Mexican beers and also are adding craft beers to the menu.
