Thousands of miles off the shores of Ireland’s emerald coast, Cancun’s tropical paradise will be brimming with Irish fever on St. Patrick’s Day this year. While an obvious correlation between these two seemingly different destinations is not at first apparent, Mexico and Ireland’s love for celebrating unite them in a bond that is undeniable.
Club Caribe members visiting Cancun for St. Patrick’s Day will be able to tip back their glasses and toast to the Irish at one or all of Cancun’s most iconic locales. Here are some great activities for you to enjoy on St. Patrick’s Day in Cancun.
Dinner at Caprichos – Irish Themed Buffet and Show
Enjoy fun, Irish-themed revelry at the brand new Caprichos restaurant at Villa del Palmar Cancun. Indulge in a carefully selected menu in honor of St. Patrick’s Day and delight in the entertainment and live music planned for you enjoyment on this special day.
Bar-Hop Cancun’s Hotel Zone
If you have owned your Club Caribe membership for a while, then you will know that the Hotel Zone is the place to go for a lively night out on the town. The various nightclubs, bars and restaurants located in the “party center” of Cancun offer the perfect mix for any type of celebration. Make sure to stop by the Irish Pub Restaurant & Bar, where Guinness and Jameson whiskey are sure to be the drinks of choice. Celebrating the Irish on this side of town will be a memory you’ll never forget.
Pirate Show Cancun
Walk the plank with a band of pirates that have taken Cancun by storm. The Jolly Roger Pirate Ship Show is a tour you won’t want to miss. On this action-packed adventure, you’ll stand witness to incredible sword fights, cannon explosions, a bilingual pirate show, and of course, an unlimited flow of drinks from the open bar on board. There is a reason the Jolly Roger has entertained more than 3,000,000 guests! Don’t miss out on your opportunity to experience the best of Cancun.
Tequila Tasting around Town
While it is far from an Irish tradition, what would a trip to Mexico be without sipping on some authentic Mexican tequila? Stop by the Tequila Herradura Museo Sensorial in the heart of the Hotel Zone for a quick lesson on the history and process of tequila making. While you are there, take advantage of the chance to try a variety of different flavors and types of tequila that will leave you wishing you could take them all home. Dare to find a green tequila!

For those who wish to avoid St. Patrick’s Day fever, take a break from the buzzing Cancun lifestyle to visit one of the most beautiful places on earth, whose lights you can see glistening upon the horizon from your balcony at Villa del Palmar Cancun. Whether you choose to sit back and relax on the beach overlooking the pristine waters of the Caribbean or head out exploring, you won’t regret spending a day or two on this little slice of heaven.
