Did You Get Travel Insurance Yet?
The Insurance companies I recommend are Hey Mondo and Safety Wing
Hey Mondo is great if you are looking for a great value flexible policy. They offer single-trip cover, annual multi-trip cover, and long-term travel cover. Safety Wing is great value, with monthly coverage starting at $39. It’s super easy to use, and it just renews each month. I currently use them as they offer me free cover for my son as part of my policy.

Best Beach Club Playa del Carmen
One of the best beach clubs in Playa del Carmen for partying is Coralina Daylite Club. Playa Coralina is the go-to beach club in Playa del Carmen for those wanting to party on the beach in Playa. If you have a larger group, it’s best to reserve your space in advance here as it’s a famous Playa del Carmen beach club for bachelor and bachelorette parties.

Quick Tip: I highly recommend booking all of your Mexico transportation with GottoGo. You can search for buses, shuttles, ferries, and Flights on their website. What I love most about them is their customer service. I know these guys personally from living in Guatemala, and they look after their customers.
If anything happens and you get delayed and miss your bus, you can just call them, and they are always there to help. If you book through them, you will pay a little more than booking in person at the bus station. But it’s worth it for the ease and security. Click here to search for transportation in Mexico.
Corasol Beach Club (Grand Coral Beach Club)
Among the best beach clubs in Playa del Carmen, Corasol is my favorite because it’s further from the central beach area. This Playa del Carmen beach club is reasonably priced and has a pool. It’s not the largest beach club Playa del Carmen is home to, so arrive early to get a bed by the pool. The last time I visited, the minimum spend was just 250 pesos, which typically works out to be a meal and an alcoholic drink or two soft drinks.

Another strong contender for the best beach club Playa del Carmen is home to is Encanto, located outside the main tourist area. Encanto Beach Club Playa del Carmen is unique in the frequency of events and activities. On weekends, you’ll find artisan markets—there are always fitness activities and volleyball games going on, too.
There’s a minimum spend to use a sun lounger (typically 300 pesos), which can increase if you want a four-poster bed. There’s no pool here, but there is a spa where you can get a great massage!

QUICK TIP: Book your tours, rental cars, and transfers through my local contacts
I’ve been working with Living Dreams Mexico for years and they are who I send all my family and friends to when they visit the Riviera Maya. I really can recommend them enough for private tours and experiences. They have solid 5* reviews on Trip Advisor and Google from almost 4000 reviewers! You can view all their tours here.

While I haven’t spent a full day at INTI Beach Club, it’s often considered the best beach club in Playa del Carmen. I enjoy brunch at INTI as the food is excellent, but this beach area is typically busy. This is the best beach club Playa del Carmen offers, centrally located near top sights.
Address: Zona Federal Maritima, Centro, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico
Hours: 9 a.m. to 12:00 a.m.
Phone: +52 984 803 1109
Lido Beach Club Playa del Carmen is about fantastic food, music, and good vibes. I’ve visited Lido many times during my travels to Playa. The food here is delicious, and it’s the perfect spot for breakfast on the beach—there are also plenty of sunbeds to relax for the day.
There’s no need to book a spot at Lido Beach Club unless it’s peak season, when mornings can be busy.
Address: Av. 1era. Norte Bis, Mz. 22, Lote 3, Centro, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

Indigo Beach Club Playa del Carmen
A roundup of the best beach clubs Playa del Carmen is home to would be incomplete without Indigo Beach Club, one of my top brunch spots in Playa. Indigo serves buffet-style breakfast until 12:00 p.m. daily for a fixed cost of 169 pesos. After filling up, sleep the day away on a beachfront bed.
Address: Calle 14 y La Playa, Centro, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico
Hours: 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Phone: +52 984 803 2599
One of the best beach clubs in Playa del Carmen is Kool, which offers day passes rather than requiring a minimum spend. Simply pay a fixed price, and (almost) all drinks and a meal are included. The cost is typically 750 pesos, which is well worth it if you plan on drinking alcohol since you can easily spend double this at other clubs. There’s a pool here, and Kool is located on an excellent section of the beach.
Address: Calle 28 y Zona Federal Marítima s/n, Centro, 77720 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico
Hours: 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Despite being hailed as the best beach club in Playa del Carmen, I’m not a fan of Mamita’s. The food is average and overpriced, and the staff has been rude to me during every visit. Last time I went alone, Mamita’s charged me a solo person fee because they only accommodate couples, what?!
I added Mamita’s Beach Club to this list because many rank it among the best beach clubs Playa del Carmen offers, but I suggest visiting elsewhere.
Address: Mza 10, Lote 8, Calle 28 Nte., Centro, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico
Hours: 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

For a gorgeous, Instagram-worthy Playa del Carmen beach club, visit Madrarino. The club offers many Instagramable spots, and the pool is picture-perfect. Mandarino is also located in a friendly and quiet area on the beach. This is one of my go-to Playa del Carmen beach clubs when I want to feel fancy and pretend I’m rich and important, haha!
Address: Avenida CTM, Albatros y, Zazil-ha, 77720 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico
Hours: 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Phone: +52 984 110 7752
Playa Martina is my top choice if I want a lowkey beach club to chill out for the day. I love the Martina Beach Club Playa del Carmen because the prices are reasonable and typically quiet and laid-back. I enjoy renting a bed and kicking my feet up with a book for the day.
You’ll pay around 100 pesos for a bed rental, and the staff is charming and not pushy. The food at Playa Martina is good, and the prices are reasonable. There is a pool here, but there’s an extra fee.
Address: Albatros, Zazil-ha, 77720 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

I’ve never been to Senor Frog’s Playa del Carmen, and I probably never will. It’s not my scene, and the location near Cozumel Ferry isn’t ideal. That said, it’s not a bad place if you’re visiting Playa del Carmen and looking for a fun, super touristy beach bar.
Playa del Carmen Beach Bars
I have to highlight the Carmen Hotel, which has the vibe of a rooftop bar. Located directly on the beach, you can chill on the hotel’s deck, grab a sunbed, or venture up to Deck Five, the rooftop pool bar.
Address: Calle 8 Nte No 876, Centro, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico
Phone: +52 984 803 2409
Zenzi Beach Club Playa del Carmen
Zenzi Playa del Carmen is the best beach bar in Playa del Carmen, in my opinion. I spend a lot of nights there listening to the live salsa band. Zenzi hosts unique events most nights of the week, so check their Facebook for the latest information.
During the day, you can lounge on the beach club’s beds, and as long as you order food, there isn’t an official minimum spend. There’s no swimming pool here, but the food is tasty and reasonably priced.
Address: Calle 10 y la Playa, Centro, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico
