This was our 2nd visit to Pez Vela and the food does not disappoint. We went on a Monday and wanted to watch Monday night football. We were seated right by a TV so no complaints there. When you go please get the nachos for an appetizer. They are delicious!! We had steak tacos and they were fantastic. You can... More

First time to Mexico and went to Playa Del Carmen and a great time at this Bar! The swings are awesome! Bartender was very friendly. I would definitely recommend.

Very cool little bar and a nice stop when we first hit 5th street. Fun staff, and friendly. Would definitely stop in there again when in the area.

I can't even begin to tell you how much I dislike this place. It was a decent place 15 years ago, but today, it is a breeding ground for dishonest, corrupt, and deceitful liars. It's been going on for years, the owner knows it, and has done NOTHING to stop it. READ all of the negative reviews and you'll understand.... More

Loved the swings at the bar, spent a fair share of time gently swaying and drinking while watching the olympics. Staff is friendly and chatty and prices aren't too bad for PDC and being on 5th. Didn't try the food but it looked good.

On my travels a couple times a year to Cancun to make it a point to spend a day or two in Playa Del Carmen and hang out on 5th ave. Pez Vela is a must stop to enjoy people watching and a meal you won't finish. Service is phenomenal presentation fantastic and food always great !!

We stopped here for a quick drink and light lunch. The staff were really friendly and the food was good. We were serenaded by the mariachi guys. The swings at the bar were pretty cool. Would go back again.

Stayed in playa del carmen in august this year, each time we came into the town we stopped here for a drink, loved the swings at the bar though i can imagine they become more difficult to sit on after a few more beers! The servers were excellent and their English was great.
