The Best Cheap Bars in Playa del Carmen

by | Jan 31, 2018

I’m always on the hunt for the best cheap bars in any city, and Playa del Carmen is no different. This town is super touristy (like most beach towns are) and there’s nothing worse than wasting money and time on totally inadequate or overpriced drinks. That’s why I drank my way through the city (just for you guys of course) and created this list of the best cheap bars in Playa del Carmen.


La Camelia’s

Location: 5th Ave. Between Calle 12 and 14
More Info Here

I can’t speak for their food because I didn’t try it, but their happy hour was amazing. From 11am to 6pm every day, you can get two mixed drinks for 90 pesos. Not bad for one of the most touristy places in town! The list of cocktails has over 20 options on happy hour, and the mojitos were delicious. I’ve also seen this sign out at various different hours of the evening, so I think their happy hour times are pretty flexible… walk by and take a look!



La Pechita

Location: 5th Ave Between Calle 34 and Calle 38
More Info Here

La Pechita is one of the best cheap bars in Playa del Carmen because they offer a good deal on mojitos and beers all the time, no happy hour needed. The price for two mojitos is 140 pesos, or you can check out the beer deal, two for 60 pesos. This place is on the more relaxed end of 5th Avenue and the tables spill out onto the street, perfect for people watching.


Manne’s Biergarten

Location: Calle 4 Between Avenida 10 and 15
More Info Here

Ok, this place was such a great find, and probably my favorite of the cheap bars in Playa del Carmen. The delicious blended margaritas and other mixed drinks are only 60 pesos each, and 1 liter margs for only 120 pesos! That’s a great deal considering on 5th avenue they usually cost way more. The best part about Manne’s is that it’s totally chill, the waiter we had was SO friendly and nice, and this is the permanent price… no need to hit them up for happy hour because you’ll get the same great deal no matter how late it is. Also, did I mention the tequila shots are only 25 pesos each? Dangerous…




Location: 5th Ave. between Calle 8 and Calle 10
More Info Here

This restaurant often has a sign out front advertising 2 cocktails for 100 pesos total. I noticed it at such random times that I stopped to ask, and the waiter told me they just put it out when it’s not crowded, and pull it in when it’s busy haha. So, def walk by and take a look, and you may just be able to snag this deal. The restaurant spills out onto 5th Ave. and has a great location.


Palm at the Playa Rooftop Pool

Location: Calle 8 between 5th Avenue and 10th Avenue
More Info Here 

FREE DRINKS for ladies on Friday night between 8pm and 11pm. Did I mention it’s a gorgeous rooftop pool with a view of the ocean? During the days, you can also get pretty good deals because it’s a 300 peso entrance fee on Mon – Wed (and 500 on Thurs – Sun) but that all goes towards food and drink at the bar and restaurant. If you’re sick of the sandy beaches, this is a great place to chill. And definitely hit it up for free drinks on Friday night!

Club de la Cerveza

Location: 5th Avenue between Calle 34 and Calle 38
More Info Here

I love craft beer, so I just have to include this one! The drinks aren’t that cheap (around 50 to 90 pesos per beer) BUT they do have a meal of three fried chicken tacos for 45 pesos, which is a crazy good deal. They also have a huge selection of different craft beers from Mexico and around the world, and an awesome ambiance. If you’re looking for craft beer in Playa del Carmen (or cheap tacos) this is definitely the place.

La Verbena

Location: Calle 34 between 5th and 10th Ave.
More Info Here 

Another ladies night! This bar has free drinks for women from 8pm to 10pm on Wednesday nights. It also has an awesome ambiance with a jungle like atmosphere. Greenery hangs from the ceiling and nice lighting make this place romantic an relaxed. It’s also right by the Club de La Cerveza, so hit this up first, save a few bucks, then splurge on some Mexican craft beer afterwards.
