Best Bars in Cancun

The Surfin’ Burrito

The Surfin’ Burrito

This is one of my absolute favorite places in Cancun! I’m in love with the laid-back atmosphere and the social scene at Surfin’ Burrito. Locals and tourists alike stop by this tiny outdoor bar for drinks, tacos, and burritos. Since it’s open 24 hours a day and has a great location right by Party Center, it’s the perfect spot for an after-hours snack after a night at the club.

Las de Guanatos

Las de Guanatos

Located at the bullring, Guanatos is the most iconic bar in downtown Cancun. On Fridays and Saturdays, this indoor-outdoor bar fills up with locals looking for a casual night out. They have great live music on weekends, along with a menu of mouthwatering Mexican food like its famous tortas ahogadas, sandwiches smothered in sauce. I love their mojitos, but most people go for the one-liter micheladas, or spiced beer.

Chuchito Perez

Chuchito Perez

Chuchito Perez is a newcomer to the Cancun scene, but an incredible location looking out over the Party Center makes this Mexican-style bar and restaurant a top choice for drinks. Enjoy a menu of beers and cocktails out on the palapa terrace, where you’ll discover amazing lagoon views—especially at sunset.

Rose Bar

Rose Bar

Rose Bar becomes one of Cancun’s top late-night spots on weekends, especially on Fridays, thanks to a weekly Ladies Night promotion. Located within the stylish ME Cancun resort, this bar has the atmosphere of a small nightclub. A sexy but tame burlesque show on the bar adds to the scene.

Blue Gecko

Blue Gecko

Whenever I go to Blue Gecko, I always see tourists of all ages having a great time, from college students to retirees. This bar is known for its awesome food (if you get there early enough), and at night they have a casual, fun and social atmosphere. This is the perfect place to have a few drinks and meet other Cancun travelers during your vacation.
