Whilst on vacation in Mexico again this year – we found our happy place.

Before we left we had looked at some pictures on our Hotel website (the cool and happy Hotelito Swiss Oasis) and saw what looked like the perfect bar. A palapa covered double horseshoe type bar – steps from our hotel and right on Zicatela beach.

When we arrived we went right there – and it was as advertised. The Papalita Bar – Friendly people, quality drinks and funky music (not always the case in Mexico).It is owned by a young couple (Aroura & her boyfriend). She is from France and he from Mexico City. They came to visit PE and stayed. After the big waves of last year wrecked a lot of the beach bars – this perfect spot was open – so they dove in.

They serve quality drinks and specialize in an amazing Piña Colada which is served in a pineapple and made only of pineapple, coconut cream and rum – awesome! Happy hour has a 20 peso refill of said Piña Colada.
They have a house DJ that plays some nights and have bands on others.

Stop by and make it your bar – like we did. Tell them “Hi from Cam & Karen from Canada!”
