CitySurfing Orlando’s Picks For Cinco De Mayo 2021 In Central Florida .. #CincoDeMayo #OrlandoRestaurants

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.

If you’re looking for a place to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in the Orlando area, or some party packages to take home, here are our picks:
