What are your plans for Cinco de Mayo? Here in Panama City Beach, we're serving up a beautiful beach day, which is always a great way to celebrate... just about anything! If you're looking for your perfect margarita in paradise, Panama City Beach has tons of great options. There's one thing for sure, if you're going to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, you definitely want to do it at the Real. Fun. Beach.

Diego's Burrito Factory

Diego's is a favorite among locals. They serve authentic Mexican eats and margaritas that make you feel like you've landed on a beach in Mexico. They have the original margarita or other delicious options like their skinny margarita or jalapeño pineapple margarita.

Los Rancheros

Los Rancheros is a great spot for Mexican food that tastes like it came straight from someone's kitchen. They have margaritas of all sizes from a small cup to a full-on fishbowl. These are sure to leave you having a great time at the Real. Fun. Beach.

Runaway Island

Runaway Island is located right on the beach, so you can grab lunch and a margarita there and then walk directly onto the beach for a perfect day. Their frozen margaritas are delicious and great for a hot day in the sun. If you want to go at night, we highly recommend getting there in time to see the sunset while sipping on a margarita. 

Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville 

Margaritaville has delicious Caribbean options on their menu that make for a great dinner after the beach. They have some amazing margarita flavors like a blueberry pomegranate margarita or the last mango in paradise.

The nice folks at Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville have passed on the recipe for one of their signature drinks, dressed up with a little South of the Border flair. If you can't celebrate Cinco de Mayo with us at the Real. FUN. Beach, we have the perfect way for you to have a beach day at home with a margarita in your hand.
