CitySurfing Orlando’s Picks For Cinco De Mayo 2020 In Central Florida .. #CincoDeMayo #OrlandoToGo

In the Orlando-area, there are several bars and restaurants that participate in Cinco de Mayo with parties and drink specials. Here are some of the best options we've found.

Cinco de Mayo is an annual holiday in Mexico, which commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over the French forces of Napoleon III on May 5, 1862, at the Battle of Puebla.

American’s celebrate Cinco de Mayo, too, but let’s be honest…it’s mostly an opportunity to celebrate Mexican culture, and enjoy adult Mexican beverages.

But in 2020, Cinco de Mayo will be celebrated for the most part at home due to COVID-19.

Thankfully several Orlando-area restaurants are stepping up with take-out meals and beverage kits for you to purchase for your own celebration.

Here are some of the best options I’ve found (some offerings are available on more than May 5, and are noted as such):
