Cancun's oldest gay bar
Every night seems like a celebration at Picante, but for holidays Picante throws wild parties complete with costumes and elaborate performances that reflect the culture of Mexico. Picante has great drink specials, drag shows and strippers. Thursday is Tequila night with free shots.

      Cheap drinks, fun times
      Picante is a little hole in the wall bar with a small dance floor just off downtown Cancun's main street, Tulum Avenue. It is the oldest gay bar in the city but the owners keep in refreshed. There are frequent 2 for 1 drink specials and it draws a lively late night (don't arrive before 11 p.m.) mixed crowd of locals and tourists . . . young and old . . . men and women. It also has a history of attracting local guys seeking a "generous" visitors (think a few beers and "taxi" fare). Many folks will often start at Picante before heading to Karamba, which is only a few blocks away. I have visited many times over the past several years and have always felt safe and had a fun time.

      Boring...
      I was in Cancun from Jul 3 to 10, I went to this bar around 11.30Pm and there was literally 3 people there. The beers are cheap, but the atmosphere is dead. It's in a really crappy neighborhood and hard to find. At 12 I ended up leaving to another nearby gay bar, which was 10x's better.

      Happy in Picante
      After spending too much time on the beach two weekends ago, it was wonderful to find Picante. One of the waiters is kind of fat but the others are quite handsome and they treated me great. I wanted to get into their underpants, but I met a great guy from Mexico City and went back to his hotel with him. Picante is an amazing place for cruising but you have to go on the weekends ... and quite late, say about midnight, because they are open till 5:00 in the morning and the two nights I was there it was crowded. Picante is kind of unusual because it is clean, even the toilets are clean.

    • BAD PLACE FOR FUN,
      HELLO EVERYBODY, I DON´T RECOMMEND THIS PLACE, IT´S A SMALL AND HORRIBLE; YOU MUST ASKING YOURSELF WHY? BECAUSE IT IS. I GO THERE(IT WAS THE FIRST AND THE LAST TIME) AND WHEN I LEFT, THREE GUYS ASSAULT ME. THERE´S NO SECURITY, EVEN THERE AREN´T CAM´S OF VIGILANCE.IF YOU DECIDE TO GO THERE, GO WITH A FRIEND NEVER, NEVER ALONE, BECUASE MAYBE YOU´LL BE THE NEXT.YOU´RE IN ADVICE. NO RECOMIENDO ESTE LUGAR, YA QUE ES PEQUEÑO Y FEO. TE PREGUNTARAS POR QUE, POR ASI ES. (ES LA PRIMERA Y ULTIMA VEZ QUE VOY A ESE LUGAR)LA VEZ QUE FUI AL SALIR ME ASALTARON TRES TIPOS. NO HAY VIGILANCIA, Y TAMPOCO CAMARAS DE SEGURIDAD.SI DECIDES IR, VE CON UN AMIGO, NUNCA, NUNCA SOLO, PORQUE QUIZAS TU SEAS EL PROXIMO. ESTAS SOBREAVISO.

      Picante not so hot
      Visited this past weekend with friends. We got there around 1130 and were the only people in the bar. The bar staff were more interested in the soccer game on tv than serving.
