Guide To Cancun
Cancun 's nightlife is legendary. After the sun goes down, the resort pulses with music and tourists swarm the bars, clubs and performance venues around town. Whether you're looking for an all-night party or an evening theater performance, Cancun offers something to please everyone.

Lobby-bar-hopping is a popular way to start off the night. Several of the larger hotels, like the Crown Paradise Club Cancun and the Avalon Grand Cancun , schedule live music in their bars and offer drink specials through dinner time. The Camino Real Cancun 's Azucar bar is a great place to practice your dance moves and sip tequila before heading out into the clubs.

Dancing is by far one of the most popular nighttime activities in Cancun . Clubbing, (or, “discoing,” as the locals call it) regularly goes on until the sun comes up. Cover charges often apply at clubs; expect to pay up to $25 to get into some of the most popular discos.

Near the Hyatt Cancun Caribe is Coco Bongo, one of the hottest nightspots in town. The venue is huge, packing in up to 3000 people on weekends and during the tourist season. Young people who love to dance flock to Coco Bongo – there's no designated dance floor, so partygoers show off their moves on tables, on the bar, and even on stage with the live band. 1970s and ‘80s dance music alternates with Caribbean , salsa and techno beats to give the club an international appeal.

La Boom, down the road from the Gran Costa Real Hotel & Spa , is known for its theme nights geared towards the spring-break crowd. Nightly deals include no cover charge, ladies' drink specials and free open bar. A weekly bikini night showcases some of the best looking women in Cancun . Be sure to catch the sound and laser light show that begins every night at 11:30 .

Go crazy at Senor Frog's to get the ultimate experience in Cancun clubbing. Located close to the Riu Caribe , the party at Senor Frog's can be seen and heard throughout the Zona Hotelera. From dinner time onwards, the club is packed with tourists of all ages drinking, dancing, and singing along with the live band. Forget beer mugs – here, the brew is served in yard-long beakers. Those who get too tipsy are dumped down long plastic chutes into a lagoon at the center of the club, where they're often rewarded with another drink. Conga lines of whistle girls keep the crowd going late into the night.

Many of the larger Zona Hotelera restaurants turn into hot spots after dark, offering much of the same raucous fun as the discos for a cheaper price. Most of these places are located within blocks of one another , making it easy to hop from place to place until you find a scene that you like. The Hard Rock Café next to the Miramar Mision Cancun features a live rock band every weekend night. From the nearby Beach Palace , you can hear (and sometimes feel) dance music pumping at Planet Hollywood. At the Dady Rock Bar and Grill, a twist on the Dady'O club next door, people come for the food (huge entrees and a buffet from 7PM) but stay for the nightlife (open bar, a DJ and dancing). Carlos ‘n' Charlie's, near the Gran Melia Cancun , also starts out serving good food and adds in live music around 8:30 . Within an hour, the place morphs from a restaurant into a packed frat-house style party.

Not keen on revisiting the romps of your college days? Visit one of Cancun 's many upscale clubs for fine dining, drinks and quality music. The Hyatt Cancun Caribe is home to the Blue Bayou Jazz Club, a restaurant and bar that features a live jazz band every night. Savor a candlelit dinner of Cajun and Creole specialties while admiring the Blue Bayou's tropical garden and waterfall. If you're downtown, head to the Roots Bar to enjoy jazz, flamenco, blues, and modern Brazilian music.

Check out Cancun 's cantinas to get a feel for traditional Mexican nightlife. Once crude, hole-in-the-wall joints where men met to drink and gamble, today, Cancun 's cantinas are charming restaurant-bars that entertain tourists and locals. Local bands provide the soundtrack to a night of drinking, eating, and socializing. On Wednesday nights, after Cancun 's weekly bullfight at the Plaza de Toros, join spectators for a drink at La Faena or La Guadalupana, near the Park Royal Piramides Cancun .

If you're looking to combine some sightseeing and adventure in a night out, hop aboard one of Cancun 's dinner cruises. As the stars come out, the Columbus Lobster Dinner Cruise sets sail on the Nichupte Lagoon. Gaze at the lights of Cancun while enjoying a gourmet lobster dinner and an open bar. The Caribbean Carnival Cruise journeys to nearby Isla Mujeres and starts off the party with an on-board open bar that lasts all night long. After docking on the island, feast on a moonlight calypso cookout and a dinner buffet. Caribbean carnival shows, music and dancing will keep you entertained until dawn.

Those looking to take in an evening of Mexican culture should check out Cancun 's dance and theater performances. The Zona Hotelera is home to a few popular productions. The Teatro de Cancun, near the Blue Bay Getaway & Spa Cancun , presents two shows every weeknight. Caribbean Traditions spotlights the music and dance of Cuba and Puerto Rico ; Voices and Dances of Mexico showcases popular songs and dances from cities throughout Mexico . The Cancun Convention Center , close to the Omni Cancun Hotel & Villas , plays host to a nightly dinner and dance show. The Ballet Folklorico is a colorful dance troupe that performs a variety of dances showcasing Mexico 's regional cultures. Discuss the show over a dinner of Mexican specialties and an open bar featuring national drinks. Mango Tango, a lagoon-side restaurant near the Hilton Cancun Beach Resort , hosts nightly salsa shows. Follow the steps of the couples on stage and you'll be able to move like a pro when the dance floor opens up to everyone.

Cancun nights are as fun as Cancun days. Mexican traditions come together with no-holds-barred partying in this resort town. Whether you want to go wild on the dance floor or kick back at a local bar, in Cancun , you'll always find a reason to stay up late.
