Underground Disco Cantina. An eclectic tropical intimate atmosphere La Santanera is nightlife in Playa Del Carmen and all around the world with both an outdoor terrace lounge and an indoor sexy disco.

In addition in the first floor featured inside the club there is Botanero Santanera a restaurant with Free Food, yeah, for free, you just pay the drinks and we give away the food.

You either can stay at the "Botanero" having some drinks and food, or go upstairs to the club or to the terrace to dance, great musical selection!

This place is amazing. We found our selves coming back to this spot at night. We tried other night spots but this place is the best. It was so comfortable and the elevated outdoor environment was great. By far the best music in town.

Worth the trip. Right off of the main street (12th) and off the tourist street of 5th Ave. It has a 3rd floor roof/patio and is a nice place to look out.

Before the wedding at Tulum I'd take to my friends to the place I love the most in Playa to have a good time, La Santanera it's a combination of music, people, atmosphere, drinks and the best night scene in Playa de Carmen. 100% recommended

If you are a Househead and looking for great place to dance to deep house music, this is your spot! It's a little bit grungy but the music is off the charts!

Quite nice relaxed vibe, not much fency! Building is nice, for elettronic music followers the music is average nothing special.. Of course years behind europe, but it doesn t matter... More

I have to say first "it is not everyone's cup of tea" but if you like a cool party after 2 pm in Playa del Carmen it is the place to be. They don't have all ways the best DJs but they give a chance to locals to preform there music. Check it out and you will love or hate... More
