When traveling, we often let our fitness routines slide. Especially in Playa del Carmen, where international restaurants, bars, and an exciting nightlife are tempting. But it doesn’t have to be like that! It’s actually very easy to exercise and stay fit on your vacation in Playa del Carmen. There are many activities to indulge in, and they are great ways to meet new people too.
Major League Baseball, UEFA Champions League, UFC fight nights… A lot is going on in the world of sports and of course you don’t want to miss it. We care a lot about our guests and understand the importance of supporting and cheering on your favorite team wherever you are. This is why we do not only provide you with the most delicious margaritas and ice-cold beers in our beach club, but also with a list of Playa del Carmen’s best sports bars. Here we go:
If you want to watch your game enjoying a tasty burger in a fun atmosphere, this is your place to be. In the outside seating area it’s more about the party. But inside you can watch just about anything that can be called sport, with main focus on US events, and even bet on the sports that are shown. Tequila Barrel is only a few walking minutes from Hotel Playa Palms, right on the 5th Avenue, between 10th and 12th street.
Legends Sport Bar & Grill
This is probably one of the local’s favorite sports bar. They have, believe it or not, 13 TVs and one giant screen where you can watch your game of choice. You can check out online which sporting events they are screening and they also have a billiard table. The bar is located on the 16th street, between the Avenues 10 and 15.
End Zone Sports Bar
Just around the corner of Hotel Playa Palms, on the 5th Avenue between the streets 12 and 14, you find this popular sports bar. They show a different game on each TV and if you’re Canadian you might feel especially happy here since they screen a lot of Canadian games.
Abolengo is in fact a nightclub, but they have a few screens where they show the most important sports games. This makes it the perfect compromise if your (girl)friends want to go party, but you really don’t want to miss your game. You find it among the other clubs on the 12th street, at the corner with 1st Avenue – just a few steps from Hotel Playa Palms.
Enjoy the game and comment below if you have any other favorite sports bar in Playa del Carmen!
Are you wrapped up in a thick winter jacket and still freezing? Do you need summer? Why not escape the cold weather to Playa del Carmen where it’s summer time all year!
Sure, some people love winter – short days, snow, skiing… But others aren’t big fans of shoveling snow and scraping ice, and can’t wait for summer to be back already. To each their own. But for all the sun lovers out there, why wait, if you could as well get on a plane with destination to Cancun? Come to Playa del Carmen, where white sandy beaches await you, the crystal clear Caribbean Sea, delicious Mexican food, and of course all of us at Hotel Playa Palms.
The vitamin D deprived among you might just want to relax at our beach club, being spoiled with drinks and snacks by our waiters Daniel and Francisco. But there is more to do in Playa del Carmen than just getting a tan and sipping Margaritas.
Of course there are plenty of excursions to explore the Mayan world and get your amount of Mexican culture. Chichen Itza, Xcaret, Tulúm, cenotes… to only mention a few. But we don’t want to bore you with the same suggestions again and again.
How about a real adventure that gets your adrenalin pumping? Every winter, between November and March, bull sharks are returning to the shallow waters in front of Playa del Carmen’s coast, attracting dauntless divers from all over the world. Arrange your tete-a-tete with a bull shark with the famous Phantom Divers, or ask Carlos, our concierge, for more information.
Maybe diving with formidable creatures isn’t your thing. Is running in a fun environment? If so, we suggest participating in the Paint & Run 5k Playa del Carmen. The 5 kilometer run is less about winning or performance, but more about having a great time. Each kilometer the runners are doused into a different color, with a cloud of colors awaiting you on the finish line and a big party. The Paint & Run 5k Playa del Carmen is held on Sunday, March 6, 2016, starting at 8 am at the Plaza 28 de Julio.
However you like to enjoy your winter escape, we are waiting or you at Hotel Playa Palms.
