A relatively low-key bar during the day and early evening hours, La Cantina is a local hangout for Mexicans and expats alike. Things can get pretty rowdy later in the evening, with people dancing (sometimes on the tables) and occasionally fighting as well. If you stop by during the traditional happy hours (1-5pm) you'll get little plates of botanas
, or snack to accompany your beer or tequila. In the evening, you'll hear traditional Mexican music, either recorded or live. Cash only.
