We went here once and will try again now that they have moved. The old place was creepy. It was Friday night at 6pm which I figured would be packed house. We pulled in looking for good mexican food and drink and there wasnt a soul in the parking lot. We were barely sure they were open. We walked in... More

Spent a night at the Super 8 nearby. We like to eat Mexican when traveling and this place didn't disappoint us. It looked like a popular local place from the number of patrons. The menu was extensive and the portions were more than enough, and the prices were reasonable.

As close to authentic as possible in Bloomsburg, PA, Playa Cancun is our go-to restaurant when we want a quick, delicious meal (with left-overs) after a day of grading assignments or doing lesson plans. We are grateful to have such a great restaurant within a short drive from our home. Muchos gracias!

If you would like a touch of authentic Mexican, try Playa Cancun. Casual & relaxed atmosphere, it is also a BYOB so a money-saver. Great place for Fajitas (chicken, shrimp, beef or all three), Chimichangas, burritos. Reasonable priced.

Playa Cancun is one of our regular stops when dining out. First, it's byob, so you can bring your own wine to enjoy with your meal. Second, they have the FRESHEST seafood I've ever tasted. The service is sometimes spotty but we always have excellent food and plenty of it! I go for lunch sometimes, and the lunch portions are... More

Having lived in the Sacramento valley for almost 20 years, I was used to having a lot of good Mexican restaurants around. In Bloomsburg, the choices are considerably less. I've tried Mexican restaurants in Bloomsburg, Hazleton, and Wilkes-Barre and have been generally disappointed. However, Playa Cancun is a good choice for the area. Since the restaurant opened, we have visited... More

during a recent trip to the Bloomburg area, my husband and I took a late day nap at the hotel and were afraid we were too late to find anything but a fast food burger meal for dinner. We were happy to find that Playa Cancun was open until 10 pm. The food was fabulous, the service excellent, the prices... More

I recently moved to the area, and have been really craving good Mexican food. Well, this place didn't help matters. I came out of the restaurant still longing for authentic Mexican cuisine. After reading the reviews on tripadvisor, it is very clear that the reviewers have never experienced real, authentic, Mexican fare. I'll be sticking to my own kitchen from... More
