If you’re off on holiday to Mexico and want to really party, chances are you’ll be heading to Cancun or Riviera Maya. There’s nowhere like these bustling beach resorts and the best thing about them is the fact that many of the places to sink a drink are set right beside the sea, the perfect place for a picturesque pint! Have a look at our list of the best beach bars to visit if you find yourself having a fiesta in this part of the world.
The Beach Club ME, Cancun
If you want a glamorous bar where you have the chance to rub shoulders with the stars then you need to get yourself to the Beach Club at the ME Hotel. It’s a flashy venue right on the water, with must-attend events including their famed adult-only weekend pool parties. But whatever night of the week you head there you’ll find great DJs, delicious drinks, and the chance to mix with some of the most beautiful people from around the world.
The Blue Parrot, Playa Del Carmen
For stylish bar shacks set on the sand, you need to head to The Blue Parrot Bar for an authentic Mexican experience with plenty of atmosphere. There are people performing with flaming poi in their fantastic fire shows, plenty of friendly faces and a truly vibrant feel all set under the swaying palm trees. It’s the perfect place to toast your island getaway.
Kukus Jacuzzi Beach Bar at the Omni Hotel, Cancun
An experience like no other. If simply relaxing on the beach isn’t enough for you and you want another level of luxury from your beach bar then head to Kukus where you can sit and sip cocktails all from the comfort of a Jacuzzi! Forget putting on your glad rags, all you need is your swimwear and you’re ready for a pre-night-out splash at this awesome establishment. But don’t expect to spend all evening there, it shuts at 7pm.
Zenzi Beach Bar & Restaurant, Playa Del Carmen
If you like live music then you should take a trip to the Zenzi Beach Bar for a night of tunes and booze, beach-side. As with many of the bars in Riviera Maya, it’s lined with light-strewn palms and offers entertainment alongside delicious local dishes and a menu full of fabulous drinks to keep you dancing until dawn.
Señor Frogs Bar and Party Boat, Cancun
Looking for a bar that offers food, drink and one hell of a party? Then Señor Frogs is the place to be! The bar itself is not strictly focussed on the beach, but if you want to take to the waves then you can hop aboard the Cancun Queen boat for a trip around the Nichupte Lagoon before you’re delivered to the bar for music guaranteed to keep you dancing until dawn.
Fusion, Playa Del Carmen
If you’re after a relaxed feel, plenty of delicious local fare (especially sumptuous seafood) and tables that sit right on the beach with a perfect view of the sunset, then Fusion bar is your best bet. Even better, Fusion is a great place to visit if you’re a drinks aficionado as they have an amazing offering of cocktails for you to sip under the stars!
So, if you’re off on a Mexican holiday, don’t be tricked into thinking the beaches are just for sunbathing. Head to one of the infamous beach bars for a boozy night to remember!
