We took a day trip to Cozumel from Playa Del Carmen and were hungry and thirsty, but didn't want a super crowded place right by the ferry dock. Viva Mexico is close but down the street enough to be away from super crowds. Its upstairs and the view is awesome. I wanted a cold beer and got it! Lunch for... More

This bar is on the upper floor of a store. We had great drinks and was fun to be able to look out over the main strip and people watch. Was fairly quiet when we were there...but I think it could be quite a rocking place later in the evening. It worth popping into to check out!

Six of us stopped by Viva Mexico while having a self-guided tour of Cozumel for the day while on a cruise. The beers were reasonably priced and ice cold. Bought a bucket for a special price. We just wanted snacks so we ordered guacamole and pico de gallo and a large beef and chicken nachos plate. DELICIOUS! The guacamole was... More

Stopped by here for a quick snack and drinks while visiting Cozumel for the day on a cruise. Had a great view from the second floor, looking out onto the beach and our cruise ship.

Nice location in downtown for a drink or quick lunch. Portions are not large, but the food qualit was pretty good. Nice spot for some good pictures with the cruise ships in the background.

The upstairs location on the main drag is a great location for taking a break, enjoying some drinks and a light snack. The prices are reasonable and the wifi is free. The menu is not very impressive, but the service is good.

Stopped in while waiting out the rain one night. Ended up closing the place down while drinking the night away. Had a blast. The service is good and the staff is friendly. They have a DJ that makes sure the music is always playing. Will definitely be returning.

Visited Cozumel and had lunch here yesterday. Beautiful weather and fabulous spot to sit and eat while watching the boats and people moving about. Fajitas were excellent, beer was lovely and cold and the service could not have been better. Free wi-fi was a bonus.
