    Welcome fellow Floridian.

    Every Friday lots of ex pats hang out at La Taberna on Yaxchilan. Big corner table inside the door. Look left before you get all the way inside. English is the primary language spoken but spanish too. Scott is usually the first one there, around 7 pm and people come and go till well after midnight.

    I would not take a cab to the Hotel Zone. It's about $50 Mxn and you can take the bus for $6.5. If you can't easily get from your house to an R-1 or R-2 or R-15 route, take a cab to Tulum for $20 and then catch the bus.

    Most new residents, in my opinion, at first think the Hotel Zone is the place to be. But it takes time and money to get there and prices are crazy. Downtown, Yaxchilan is the primary area. At La Taberna drinks are always 2x1 and a mixed drink is $42 per round of 2 drinks. Not bad at all.

    Across the street is Los Arcos and El Asador, both hopping places.

    Across from Walmart, upstairs in the Hong Kong plaza is Sabor Latino if you are a dancing fool. Better to go with others and then mingle around, than to go in and work the room alone.

    These are good suggestions to start.

    I found out today the Friday night group might change locations. The new law in Cancun is no smoking in enclosed places and Lataberna is enclosed. Doug (The owner) is obiviously upset. but hell man, welcome to Cancun and LaTaberna is a great place.
