We recently visited Playa del Carmen as a group of 12 (6 couples) and signed up for the Friday night pub crawl. No one besides me really knew what to expect, but everyone had a great time and was extremely impressed by the nightlife. Our guide, Ivan, met us promptly at our designated meeting spot and got everyone amped up for the night. Our clubs for the night were Karta Bar, Mandala and Palazzo. We had 2 of the best tables in the house at Karta and Mandala, but Palazzo was packed by the time we arrived, so we chose to go to a less crowded location where we could get some good real estate. Ivan was cool with our request and had no problem accommodating our needs!
I also did this same trip Memorial Day Weekend with a group of 13 guys for a Bachelor Party. We went to the same 3 bars on a Thursday night and had hands down the best tables at all 3 clubs. That night we got the balcony overlooking the dance floor at Palazzo which was awesome.
I highly recommend doing the crawl at least one night during your stay in Playa. The guides are great, and it is nice having everything besides a little tip money prepaid and taken care of ahead of time!
