Bachelor Party - Super Bowl - RIU Cancun
Save

Hello.. I’m planning a bachelor party for my buddy for February in Cancun this 2022. We are staying at RIU Cancun 5 days 4 nights decent size group of guys 10 or 12 at this point. Does anyone know if the RIU Cancun hosts a Super Bowl party? If so any details? If not is there a place in the hotel zone you would recommend to watch the game or that is hosting a party? Any info would be much appreciated..

No idea if the RIU will have a party but there's a Hooters (actually two of them...one on Plazas La Isla and the other down in Party Central) in the hotel zone that will obviously show the game.

I guess Hooters will be our fall back plan as of now. I can’t find much online for Super Bowl Cancun events. I’m guessing the sports bar at RIU will have the game on TV , snacks, drinks and maybe their entertainment team will have some activities prior or at halftime.

If you're willing to venture outside the hotel zone there are several casinos downtown with Sports Books where they always show the game. I've been several times. It's a good time and easily accommodates bigger groups.

There's also La Taberna. Two locations (bigger one in Malecon Américas and a smaller one on Avenida de Sol.... it's my go to every Saturday for college football) that will definitely have the game on their many many tvs. Very good sports bar food too.

I have been to Riu Cancun for the NFL playoffs a few times and they always set up the games on a big screen projector in the Sports Bar with rows of seating. It’s usually pretty fun and all the football fans hang out. The Super Bowl I’m sure they would do this at a minimum and probably a bigger party.

if you don’t love the vibe then hooters is an option as mentioned but is a lot of smaller screens. I think you will have fun at Riu for the game.

I assume you are aware of the shading issue at the Riu Cancun that time of year?

I’ve stayed at RIU Cancun about 3 times before but never been in February. How bad is the sun blocked back by the pools ? How long ?

It is pretty bad that time of year. Obviously the worst is December 21 and it slowly gets better. It will still be bad in Feb. The quiet pool never get sun. The pool deck is spotty in the morning with the entire pool deck in shade by 1 and the beach completely shaded by 3. The sun isn’t real strong that time of year so shade gets cool real quick.

So I want to take the bachelor party out a night or two. Does anybody know if they still do the party hopper to Senor Frogs , Coco Bongo etc. ? If so are they still doing sign up at the resort ?

Also if anybody has ate before at Lorenzillo’s Seafood is it worth it?

Tony,

I have to tell you our Lorenzillo’s story. So at the very back of the restaurant is an outside patio. (Not the one to the left side when you get there, but it’s behind the main dining room). So we eat late. Make reservations for about 8:00 pm. So at the end of the night about 9:30 or 10:00 the waiter will call for the crocodile that lives in the lagoon out back. It’s a female they named Lorenzina. The waiters will call her up and feed her lobster. All the kids were squealing and half the indoor restaurant was outside. This is the 3rd or 4th time we have seen this. Years ago they had a big male that disappeared and they never knew what happened,

We think the food is really good. We can’t ever decide if Puerto Madero or Lorenzillo’s has the best Cesar salad. They really have good lobster and it’s prepared at least a dozen ways there. The crocodile doesn’t come out during the daylight hours but sometimes right after dark she swims around out back.

Tony,

I forgot to mention that the Cancun Marriott on the stem of the “7” has an actual sports bar. It’s called Champions. They DO allow people not staying at the Marriott to come inside via taxis or transportation. It’s definitely the vibe you are looking for. Huge one wall big screen, prob the biggest I’ve ever seen and then other tv’s everywhere showing all different sports. The food is good there as well. It’s in a building all it’s own so it isn’t on the water. Set up better than Hooters but it is a taxis ride mid way down the “7”. So if the ride is a concern Hooters would be best.
