Since this is Mexico, you’ll find margaritas at every turn. But Tulum’s cocktail scene is well-developed (and well-priced), so venture beyond the typical lime-and-tequila concoction and order the expertly made cocktails at Casa Jaguar and Gitano. Mezcal is another favorite here—you’ll see it on every cocktail menu, as is Mexican gin, which is growing in popularity. And if you’re in downtown, don’t miss Batey, which specializes in mojitos made with local fruit and sugarcane that’s pressed right in front of you. The nightlife scene gets rowdy during the holidays—perhaps the most renowned is the full-moon party at the Papaya Playa Beach Club.
