Yaxchilan Avenue

Does anyone have any suggestions for nightlife in downtown Cancun? Open air bars, music and dancing to good music would be a blast. Going Jan. 2 to Riu Americas... *S*

1. Re: Yaxchilan Avenue

Yaxchilan is hopping! We hit La Taberna, Los Arcos, La Parilla and Los Cuatro Elementos last night. First two are kind of "cantina style" or sports bars, sit around with beers and people watch or watch soccer. La Parilla is a great restaurant with strolling mariachis. Los Cuatro Elementos is a laid back place, more on the romantic side. We went past La Buena Onda but didn't go in, sounded like they were having a good party though, same with Canta Bar. For really great salsa music and dancing, try Melao. You just have to walk down the strip and you can find something fun.

Not on Yaxchilan, but downtown nonetheless, Over 30's, Roots for jazz, Sabor Latino for salsa or just walk down Tulum Avenue near Coba, a touristy area with some small cantinas. Have fun!
