In VIVA MEXICO Snackbar we go beyond tacos and "sombreros". We have a mouth-watering menu of appetizers, salads, burgers, quesadillas, guacamole and more... Our drinks are quite remarkable as well, our bar offers the traditional Margaritas, Mojitos, Daiquiris, Cocktails, Beers and pretty much anything you can drink... now, when it comes to dancing, we know just what you need with our ROCKIN FRIDAYS and SATURDAYS accompanied by The Red Eye Band and our SUNDAYS flavored by the versatile BAND "DEJAVU"... so Viva Mexico!!

We stopped in just to have a drink or two but the view was soo good we had some lunch also. I can't say for sure what we got but I remember it was good. The waiters were a friendly bunch and made us feel right at home. I would definitely go back again if I am in the area

Always obnoxiously blasting music. Don't expect to be able to have a conversation. Also i live in Cozumel and this place is notorious for not allowing local Mexicans to enter. It's called Viva Mexico for crying out loud! Very inauthentic. Tourists should look elsewhere for a real Mexican atmosphere.

I haven't eaten there, but I can't recommend more Rubben - singer and his band. They were singing live on Friday night (1am), the atmosphere was great, he's a real rockstar and the band was amazing they gave us a real show. It's also a great place to dance little bit and have a few drinks. Perfect spot to go... More

We popped in to this bar for some drinks after some diving and it was a really fun place with great music and nice cold beers and a fab view over the bay. The only small point is that we didn't get lime in our beers but the bar tenders were fun and good humoured and we had a really... More
