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. Handpicked International Dj's. Non Stop Music until midnight! 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. Where you can start the night fully belly to complete the experience of an unforgettable night or just relief the "munchies" in the middle of the night.

Really enjoyed the music here. It was a relief to find some Deep house vs. the harder/faster/more commercial music at the beach clubs and other bars on 5th Ave. We enjoyed checking out the upper levels when they opened, but since it was early, it was not very full... As we were leaving, we saw a line of people coming... More

This place offers you 3 different ambiances separated on 3 floors. Outdoors with live bands, pop/house/techno music on a closed area and the lounge on the top floor for socializing and smokers also. It becomes crowdy after 3h00am once the other bars start to close.

Amazing dance music on Saturdays, though it is empty week days. Athmosphere is quite good and people attending is friendly and easy going. They don't sell beer! despite of trying to send a message to customers, I think they should do so on a beach place of these temperatures!

Amazing place to go out and have a drink and dance all night. Good music, people and location. I had the best time dancing on the top floor with the wind in my hair.... Absolute freedom 🙌🏻

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!
