La Zebra Cantina Caribbean beach barTulum, Mexico
Nothing says beach bliss like a straw hut sitting beneath palm trees and overlooking one of the Caribbean’s white-sand beaches. La Zebra Cantina is part of a hotel, but you're welcome to come and enjoy the setting, even if you're not a hotel guest. Every day the bartenders press sugarcane juice to use in the bar’s full range of cocktails, and they go oh-so-well with dishes prepared using freshly caught seafood, local vegetables and homegrown herbs from the hotel’s garden.
Make your way through the cocktail list developed by award-winning mixologist Jasper Soffer and take a run at the extensive range of tequilas available, or order a cucumber mojito and watch the sunset. A salsa band gets busy after dark on Sundays, with staff leading impromptu dance lessons. The vibe is laid back, the staff are friendly and the view of the Caribbean Sea is picture perfect.
