Cancun Travel Guide

Cancun Nightlife

Cancun''s nightlife is among the world''s best. Dozens of bars and nightclubs welcome tourists with the promise of cheap tequila and lively music.

Most parties aimed at tourists take place in the Hotel Zone. Popular bars like Dady''O, Congo Bar and CoCo Bongo host top deejays, opening from 10pm until the sun rises. Many restaurants like the Señor Frog''s, Hard Rock Cafe and TGI Friday''s double as bars, which is often cheaper than many of the clubs. A great way to sample the nightlife of the Hotel Zone is on a Bar Hopper Tour, which provides entry and transportation to several popular hotspots.

In downtown Cancun, the clubs aren''t as shiny or filled with tourists, but the drinks are significantly cheaper. The nightlife in downtown Cancun is concentrated on Yaxchilan Avenue, and you''ll find the local residents patronising bars like Los 4 Elementos and La Taberna.

Several hotels in Cancun host Mexican fiesta nights, with folk dancing performances and dinner. These nights make a great alternative to the bars and clubs, which can be rowdy and filled with young people, especially during the Spring Break period.
