El Lucero del Alba Cantina

The Cantina El Lucero del Alba offers a cozy ambience, here you will find no sophisticated design, but a classic cantina. The name El Lucero means "dawn star".

The Botanero bar with daily live music performances is just half a block east of Remate de Paseo de Montejo, the start of Paseo de Montejo downtown.

The place is popular especially with locals. You get so-called botanas, which are small snacks served free of charge with drinks (El Luccero offers typical Yucatecan snacks). But you can also order something to eat in addition.

Like the Dzalbay Cantina, El Lucero is open a little longer than most cantinas - until 10:00 or even 12:00 at night, depending on the day of the week, and it can get quite loud and crowded.

El Lucero (like Negrita Cantina and Dzalbay Cantina) is a corner building and, like the other two, has a courtyard (which at El Lucero looks like a giant straw hut on a beach).

In addition to Facebook you can also find El Lucero del Alba on Instagram.

The Restaurant Row

El Lucero del Alba Cantina is located on the so-called Restaurant Row (Corredor Gastronómico) that extends about four blocks east on Calle 47 from the south traffic circle of Paseo de Montejo. The whole street was renovated in 2023 and there are some of the best restaurants and trendiest cafes in the city.
