Before the new place!

I was at Captain Dan's when it was still located at the pier for the ferry to Cozumel. Met Captain Dan and found out he and a fellow bar owner out of Okc (Whiskey Chicks) are friends and that we know the guy from Okc. We talked for a few hours and had a blast. Can't wait to see the... More

I've been to Playa many times, and there are a lot of bars. Many owned by Americans and many missing the mark because they seem to be the toy of the rich guy and not an actual cared for, well run establishment. Dan's is the opposite. The staff is friendly, the drinks are strong, and the proprietor seems to really... More

Ran across Dan's when I was staying at a hotel next door. Not only does the have great drinks and service, he is often there and is great to talk to about the areas attractions and ways to get there. Even though my hotel was all inclusive, I spent a couple days hanging out and watching football. He was kind... More

Dan's is a great spot to have a drink you can watch the ocean from the swings. Also, there's a great tv setup for watching World Cup games

We made a special trip down to Captains Dan's for the Kiwi Marg's, and the cool look of the place. It was all we hoped for with the best Margarita we had the entire week we were in Playa, and there was no lack of data collecting!! We met Dan and had a great time with him, and received great...

The wife & I had experienced a heck of a travel day (thanks to a cancelled flight) when we made it to the ferry stop across from Cozumel, our destination. We had some time to kill, so we sat down for margaritas at Captain Dan's. A cool little beach bar. The margaritas were like music to our lips. The view... More

Captain Dan's Bar is super fun!! It's shaped like a pirate ship and you'll find near ferry docks to Cozumel. But it's not just a place to grab a drink while waiting for the ferry...it's fun anytime! And Dan's a fun-loving guy who knows how to make a MEAN Kiwi Margarita! SOOO GOOD. A must stop on your visit to... More
