Diabllitos Cha Cha Chas has always been one of our favorite places for dinner, located just off of 5th Avenue in Playa Del Carmen. This place is still a top shelf restaurant.

it;s a nice restaurant and the food was really good. I'm not so much into electronic music and the style was 'dance'. It was nice for the people who enjoyed that type of music. Maybe some variation here and there would have been appreciated but I'm assuming it's not their style.

Sushi and Mexican appetizers are out of this World. This is in my opinion the most delicious restaurant in the area.

Here you can get the pre game started and still be able to talk and here yourself. The set up is beachy meets the 50's. The layout is cool and there is also a small bar to watch from while you people watch.
