For some, a nice night out might be simply straying away from the hotel for a nice dinner and dose of people-watching along Playa del Carmen’s Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue).
If that’s your plan, don’t just expect to find great Mexican food. The influx of people from all over the world means that many Playa del Carmen restaurants boast some incredible international cuisine.
There’s always something magical about seeing a live show. The raw talent, the energy of the crowd, the flow of inebriating drinks and the electric atmosphere. And in the case of Playa del Carmen, of course, you’ll have to add in a dose of palm trees, thatched roofs and the tropical surroundings to those rhythmic beats.
While there is more than enough to keep you busy and entertained in downtown Playa del Carmen, there are also a few nearby attractions that are great alternatives for a night out for the entire family.
There’s no two ways about this one: Playa del Carmen’s nightclubs rock. If you’re looking for a wild night of loud music, top tunes from Latin America, Europe, and the United States, plus some beautiful people showing off their fancy dance moves, don’t miss a night out to check out some of Playa’s many great nightclubs.
From a spectacular display of Mexico’s finest folklore to experiencing the breathtaking beauty of a Cirque du Soleil show or the majestic history of the Maya projected on the walls of the great Kukulkan Pyramid in Chichen Itza.
