Late 40's gay couple visiting playa for the first time late february

Hi! We are a gay couple in our late 40's from San Francisco who are visiting Playa Del Carmen for the first time (have been to PV and Mexico City) Feb. 26 - March 5th. Looking for any tips or other gay people/couples who may be there while we are there to hook up for cocktails. One is a research manager and one a graphic designer. We are looking forward to our first trip to Playa Del Carmen. PS: Does anyone know a place to watch the Oscars in PDC?

We are not a gay couple, but one of us is a research evaluation coordinator and the other is a publication designer

There is a gay bar, Playa 69. I went by there once, but it was not open yet. It is a past my bedtime place, I guess.

We will not be there when you are, but we will be living in Merida the next year and have gay and lesbian friends there. If you like the Yucatan enough to return, get in touch for future trips

Yay for you! My first trip was last year and loved it. So glad to hear there are folks looking for Oscar watching parties rather than ball games *yawn* I would just ask the merchants around when you're down there. and some places don't even have tv's. (of course stay away from sports related places, like EZ) Or you could always get some booze, go back to your hotel and watch in your room...naked!
;-) Have fun. Can I stay at your place in SF while you're gone? :p

A place to watch the Oscars is tough! I watch from home--I'll try to find out if anyone's planning to broadcast them and I'll come back and post here.

Thanks Heather! We can always watch in our hotel room but would be fun to find someplace having an Oscars Party. I appreciate your response!
