During our stay in Playa (4 months) we rarely missed a day at this Beach Bar! The owners, JJ and Kim were friendly and helpful (Kim also very good looking!) The Bar (Daniela, Sharleen, Mike, Abe...) served exceptionally good drinks (Margaritas and pina coladas were delicious, and dangerous!) The service was friendly and casual, as we like it, and Ernesto Tamayo and Crispin Nava Casarrubias with their assistants Eric(Correcaminos) and Edgar (my Maya teacher) were really nice guys dedicated to please and be of service to us. The place offer FREE Beach umbrellas and chairs and all they ask is for you to consume some drinks or/and food. The food is very good and very reasonably priced. Good music after 2 PM.although after 4 months became a bit repetitious (include some new songs! No more "Ring of Fire"!!!!)
Be sure that you go indeed to Wah Wah as there are others to claim to be them just to attract the clientele. Nothing in the beach is to compare in service, price and friendliness!!!
Best regards to John, Charlie and so many others and our gratitude for the great times shared!
And, last but not least,a big hug to my friend Roberto Santana (Bobby), the "protector" of Wah Wah , who is becoming a "legend" in Canada. If in Playa del Carmen DO NOT MISS THIS PLACE! Very likely, like we did, you will be going back just about every day!

Wah Wah's has an incredible Sunday Pig Roast! Complete with an incredible variety of additional food on the buffet. Always great music, drink specials and it is located right on the beach in Playa.

We heard about Wah Wah quite by accident and so glad that we did and decided to stop in during our trip. It was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon ... enjoyed a fabulous view, met some awesome people, ate some great tasting food (the prime rib sandwich was highly recommended and did not disappoint my bf), and sipped on some very refreshing margaritas (thanks Fernando!!!!).

We even brought the rest of our group a few days later while on our shopping trip to town for some drinks and food and came back another evening to listen to the band ... nothing like listening to some great music with your toes in the sand and dancing with no shoes!!!

Thanks to Kim, JJ, Fernando and the rest of the staff for making us feel so welcome... you have a great and very special place ... can't wait to stop in again very soon but in the mean time we will be letting everyone we know heading your way to stop in!!!

P.S. To all the Canadians out there they also have Clamato so order up those Caesars if you have a craving while on vacation!!!

I could sit here all day in the cool ocean breeze and a cold drink drink. It is great. Everyone on staff is friendly. The live music is wonderful.
