Cancun has become quite the destination for visitors that want a taste of the nightlife. If bright lights and loud music are beckoning you to this part of the world, get ready for the party of a lifetime. Cancun is one of the best party destinations worldwide. With a wide variety of popular shows, bars, restaurants, and clubs the party never stops.
Enjoy Fun Shows
Cancun offers an array of fun shows for all night entertainment. Dance to live music, sing along with the mariachi band, and play games all night long. For a traditional Mexican fiesta, book a trip to Xoximilco. This night time cruise on trajineras, Mexican boats originally used to carry flowers, will take you through scenic canals as you enjoy a tasty dinner along with live music and games.
If you prefer to hang with the pirates, climb aboard Captain Hook’s ship and join the rest of his motley crew. But get ready for sword fighting, pirate escapades, and a whole lot of dancing as you sail the Caribbean Sea in this 17th century Spanish Galleon replica.
If you’re looking for a Las Vegas type show, look no further than Coco Bongo. This incredible show has it all: performances by acrobats, circus acts, conga lines, colorful bright lights, and even features confetti explosions and foam parties. So if you’re in for a wild night, get your tickets early.
Go Bar Hopping
No night is complete without checking out the bar scene. With live music and an inviting atmosphere, The Black Pub, an English style bar, is easily a favorite spot for both tourists and locals alike. And if you like beer, you’re in for a treat. This pub has a wide variety of international beers that you won’t find anywhere else.
Want to kick the heels and wing tips and slip into your sandals? Then check out The Surfin’ Burrito. The bar sits right on the beach, so you can have your toes in the sand and a cold brew in your hand as you sit back and enjoy the sunset. Along with a long list of drinks, this 24-hour bar has everything from tacos, burritos, and nachos to chicken wings and hamburgers.
One of the most well known and loved bar-restaurants in Cancun, Senor Frog, is an experience in and of itself. It’s a quiet, laid-back restaurant by day, serving everything from quesadillas to hamburgers. But once the sunsets, the place turns into a nightclub full of singing and dancing. If you’re feeling really fun, the restaurant has a slide you can go down that leads into the Nichupte Lagoon.
Party It Up at the Nightclubs
One of Cancun's most popular clubs, Dady'O, hosts some of the best acts in Cancun. Join in the bikini and wet t-shirt contests and open bar promos, or dance the night away to themed 80s and 90s music. This multi-level club hosts popular DJs and celebrities, so let loose on the dance floor to some of the best hits in town.
Get ready for a crazy night of Salsa, Cumbia, and Merengue dancing at one of the best nightclubs in Cancun--Grand Mambo Cafe. With live music featuring bands from all over the Caribbean and South America, a fully stocked open bar, and a low cover charge of about five dollars--there’s nothing about this place you wont love.
Go big at The City. This is by far the biggest nightclub not only in Cancun, but across Latin America. Spread over three floors, the nightclub features nine bars and can hold a crowd of up to 5000 people. And with huge flat screens, everyone can enjoy the show. Paul Van Dyk, Tiesto, Ludacris, and Fergie are just some of the A-list artists who performed at this place.
