    So we are going to have a good amount of people that will want be going out at night off the resort - instead of googling it, I thought you ladies could help hopefully help me out.

    I am very familiar with Cancun, but wondering if there are any bars/clubs in Riviera Maya or if it is closer to head to playa del carmen. Any info will be GREATLY appreciated

      Hey! I just googled and saw your resort is in Puerto Morelos. My resort is as well, and I've been doing some preliminary research on a night out. I've found that it is closer to go to Cancun than to PDC from Puerto Morelos. I'm thinking of getting a bus to take us all to and from Cancun one night... so that may be an option for you?

          Hey MexBride - is there anything to do near Puerto Morelos that you have found? Yeah we stayed in Cancun in January and it was $35.00 each way for a cab ride to our resort. Guess I will have to look into renting a bus which sounds like a great idea! :)

            Ok I also found this:

            It's night time and people go to sleep! This statement would probably be the best description for night life in Puerto Morelos. For those who are in search of discoth¨ques and all night dancing, there are two very good choices -- Cancun or Playa del Carmen. The beauty and splendor of Puerto Morelos is that we are so close to these two popular destinations, we can choose to go party in either and then come home to the peace and quiet and sleep your night off with a relaxing day at the beach.



            For those that wish to have a drink close to home and enjoy a quiet conversation with their new friends, Puerto Morelos has several options such as Johnny Cairo's where you can sit at the bar and listen to John's roaring Irish tales or Palapa Pizza where you sit and watch the people at the town park. For the hipper crowd, stroll down to La Caverna where local musicians gather to jam on bongos and play Latin influenced jazz. Occasionally some of these bars bring in live bands for the enjoyment of the locals. These parties are usually no miss occasions as all the town comes out to enjoys the music and dance. On the Full Moon, you might hear some drumming from your room, follow the beat and it will generally lead you to a beach campfire and some of the best drumming and singing that you have heard since you arrived in town excluding yourself in the shower.

              Lauren - thanks, we may need to check those places out! I haven't found anything for Puerto Morelos, so this is very helpful.

                Hi! My resort is also in PM and I can attest that the town is pretty sleepy. However, there are a few cute bars and restaurants that are good alternative if you just want to drink and hang out. By walking around the town square, you'll realize pretty quickly which place is happening that night. However, if you want loud music and dancing, I would lean toward PDC - just seems more manageable w/ a crowd and the "club" strip is very small so it's hard for anyone to get lost!

                    PDC is about 30 mins south and Cancun is about 20-25 mins north depending on where in the city you go. Maybe you can contract a van or two for your night out so you dont have to worry about everyone getting cabs! I am not so far along in my planning yet but am contemplating doing this a few days before the wedding (for the "early birds" who get there earlier in the week).

                      Where/how does someone go about getting a bus?
