I can't believe we have been coming to Playa for over 25 years and this is the first time we have gone to the Wah Wah Beach Bar. When walking the beach one afternoon we heard music coming from here. We stopped and had a beer and listened to a great group. Our time to go out has changed over... More

We've stopped here for a few beers before, but never tried their food until this trip and it was fantastic! Unbelievable amount of food for the price! Listening to live music in the afternoon right on the beach is great.

Great location, usually great afternoon music. But the food is hit and miss for quality. Mainly TexMex style food. Very close to the ferry dock and just one block on the beach from the popular 5th Avenida. Definitely a want to do in Playa ..

We decided to hit the Tequila Barrel to put some bets down and... More

Location is great, service is average even for Mexico. It is low key and fun with a good beach area. The public beach area next to wah wah is heavily used by tourist and locals alike.

What can ya say about a great beach joint? If it is a great beach joint it says it all, right? Love Wah Wah as one of the last holdouts on Playa beach for the old time beach joint experience. They haven't changed a thing.... thankfully. Still good drinks, good reasonably priced grub and great crowd that includes gringos who... More

It was Friday night and we were looking for a place to grab dinner with our grown kids. My son pulled up a review for Wah Wah so we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. It happened to be 2-for-1 pizza night. That worked out great for the wallet. We took a table on the beach... More
