For Sundowners

Cancun Restaurants

Cancun sunsets are spectacular. One thing to consider though is that in the Hotel Zone the ocean faces east which means you will see the sun rise but not set. We recommend finding somewhere that looks towards the lagoon if you’re after a drink and a sunset. 

Surfin’ Burrito

Cancun Restaurants

If you are looking for a laid-back place, we recommend Surfin’ Burrito, a combination of a Mexican and American bar in the middle of Cancun. If you fancy a mojito in a casual atmosphere bar, try Blue Gecko Cantina. While most travelers are into margaritas, mojitos, tequilas, and beers, if you’re into wine try El Rincón del Vino, the first bar in Cancún to only serve wine. To keep the party going late into the night, try The City Discotheque (the biggest nightclub in Latin America).
