Playa Norte Beach Club

Playa Norte

Although it caters mostly to guests of the Privilege Aluxes hotel, you can also visit this architecturally modern bar that plays chill-out music by day and has live music at night, just make sure to book a table (or a palapa) in advance via email. The fish tacos are a perfect cerveza accompaniment. Try to stop by for the gorgeous sunset.
