Why Cancun’s Nightlife Is Just as Awesome as Its Beaches
Cancun is already known for its bright-blue beaches, but what you might not know is how much there is to do when the sun sets over the water. This Mexican city is packed with top-class nightclubs, and most of them offer free alcohol with admission. If you’re planning a trip to Cancun, make sure you hit up one of these hot spots after you towel off.
1. Coco Bongo
This nightclub is for partiers! A ticket to get in includes an open bar from 10:30 p.m. to 3:30 a.m., and there is never a dull moment: Throughout the night, performers break out in song, dance, acrobatics and more. Think Las Vegas’ Circus Circus cranked up to 11. At any moment, your bartender could pick up a mic and start singing, a big act could take the stage, or women could hang on silks above you.
2. Mandala Disco
Don’t let the name fool you; this is not the disco your parents went to. Mandala Disco is an Indian-inspired club, which means it is full of bright colors, classy fabrics and party animals. This open-air club is all about richness — you’ll feel like you’re in a five-star lounge rather than a club; but don’t worry… The open bar from 10:30 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. still applies!

This three-story club is probably Cancun’s largest, with room for more than 5,000 people. And for good reason: The City books big American names such as Ludacris, Snoop Dog and 50 Cent, as well as popular DJs like DJ Snake, Diplo, and Steve Aoki, just to name a few. If you’re looking for a place to dance your heart out in a sea of people, this is the place.
4. Señor Frog’s
Two words: Foam party! Every Wednesday, people at Señor Frog’s get to go crazy in bubbles, and most ticket packages also include free alcohol until closing time, dinner and a T-shirt. Señor Frog’s restaurants are located all over the world, but the people who visit the Cancun location always come home with stories to tell. Dance, sing, eat, hang out and have a good time when the foam starts falling. Don’t forget to take pictures and show off to your friends back home.
