Fire dancers on Hidalgo: Street entertainment in El Centro
Hidalgo is the main street in downtown Isla Mujeres where all the shops and restaurants are. You will find all sorts of entertainment there, from fire juggling to mariachi bands to dancers. It makes for a fun atmosphere! They perform for tips so if you like it give them a few pesos.

Hidalgo St: Street Performers on the Island
Eating dinner or getting a drink at one of the many restaurants and bars on Hidalgo St brings not only food and drink but also plenty of live entertainment. We were treated to guitar trios and soloists performing traditional Mexican songs. We also saw two drummers providing the beat for a fire-twirler/gymnast. Tips, of course, are appreciated by these performers, but it's well worth it!
Kokonuts: Coctail Bars
It was low season during our stay on Isla Mujeres so there was not much going on. But we did manage to find some nice places to go out in the evening. Hidalgo streets seem to be the party street. Higest density of bars was there. Places were not overcrowded but nicely filled up. Our bar, Kokonuts, had also live music that just rounded up the nice atmosphere.
Dress Code: No dress code. As long as you feel comfortable.

Buho's Swing Bar: Sunset Happy Hour
Buho's has a prime location on Playa Norte, with a busy sand volleyball court just a few feet from the bar. It is easy to join in a game, everyone here seems very friendly....or you can sit in one of Buho's swing seats and just watch the action.
Buho's also has great views of Isla Mujere's famous sunsets, and 2 for 1 Happy Hour drinks to go with it!
Jax Bar and Grill: Jax has tunes.....
Jax is a restaurant and also has music at night. It is close to the downtown area and all the other restaurant choices in town. The music is good depending on the night you go. It gets pretty loud and stays open pretty late. Our hotel was next door so I can speak on this. There are other music playing venues but this seemed to be a very popular stop for the young at heart.
Dress Code: Anything from bikinis and shorts to whatever you feel like.
