On the most beautiful avenue in Playa, 38th street, this place makes great cocktails made with local Mezcal, Tequilas and more. You will likely enjoy the feel of this jungle bar as it seems to have sprung up amongst the millenial trees still present in this part of town.

Cool little bar and restaurant, this place specializes in Oxacan cuisine and Mezcals. Often showcases live entertainment. Authentic feel. Also check out the place directly next door called La Selva. Both are great

Best Italian restaurant around Playa, actually, it's the best restaurant in Playa period I think!- Every thing is made on the spot, fresh ingredients, good quality-price. It's a small, unpretencious and authentic place. Great wine selection. Only problem is that all of Playa knows this so be prepared to wait for a table, better yet, make a reservation.

Tacos, tacos, tacos... well enough said. there are a few Fogons around town. The one I prefer is across the street from Mega grocery store. Hits the spot, cheap, open late everyday of the week

Arts & Culture

Walk around Playa and check out all the street art!- some is really great (some is done by me Laounika:) it's a free museum you can enjoy by simply walking or taking a bike ride...

find out through the web or by asking around if anything interesting is happening in the theatre, you'll be surprised to find they host many fascinating, often free or very cheap cultural events!

Sightseeing

Not as popular as Tulum or Chicheitza but wow, I think it's a treasure... If you go, keep going and visit the town of Valladolid

Everything Else

Because Tulum has great beaches, snorkeling, a special atmosphere. Take note that it can be pricy and somewhat hippy-chic pretencious

don't tell anyone else, but Valladolid is a special little colonial town, about 2hrs drive from Playa, with hidden treasures (such as Cenotes right downtown) a nice authentic atmosphere, food and drink, a few museums, and awesome architecture. It is comparable to Merida, however, I prefer the feel of Valladolid

Beaches, great sunsets (and sunrises, it's an island) well preserved. Great for a day trip. From Cancun, a ferry takes you there in about 30 mins.

Entertainment & Activities

just in case it's a rainy day, cinemas are as good as in Canada or the US BUT- they are way cheaper (about $3 ) movies are usually in original language with subs
