Things That Go Bump in the Night: Clubbing in Cancun

Cancun. Nightlife. The words go together like tequila and lime. If you spend your vacation lounging on the beach all day and soaking in the hotel hot tub every evening, you’re missing a whole reason people go to Cancun, Mexico in the first place. Take a shot and head into town for some partying you’ll never forget!

Here are the top spots with the wildest parties, the hottest people, and the most daring drinks:

Papa Don’t Preach

Dady’O is one of Cancun’s most popular clubs, thanks to its combination of great music and titillating shows. From bikini contests to wet t-shirt battles, this joint is always hosting outrageous events encouraging women to flaunt everything they’ve got. The girls aren’t the only ones having fun showing off, though. Play your cards right and you could be in town to see the men of Dady’O attempting to win the best body prize, though you can be the judge of that yourself!

Whether you want to participate or just watch, it’s guaranteed to be a night of adults-only fun. Mix in top-rated DJs from all over the world playing the sexiest dance music, plenty of open bar promos, and theme nights to bring out the 80s go-go dancer in all of us, and you know you’re in for a heck of a night!

Loco in Coco

If you’re looking for less structured fun and just want to dance the night away with no thought of tomorrow, go to Coco Bongo. It’s far more than just your average club. With entertainers performing on the main stage all night long and a dance floor of wall-to-wall half-naked college kids, it’s easy to spend an entire night swaying, drinking, and losing all of your inhibitions.

For just a little extra moolah, you can book the VIP treatment and the Coco Bongo servers will make sure you always have a drink in hand. The atmosphere is electric and in no time at all you’ll be carried away with the crowd, having the best night of your life.

Sin in The City

The crew at The City Discotheque proudly proclaim their club to be the largest in all of Latin America, and you can feel it as soon as you walk in the door. You can fit 6000 people in the 3-storey building, and most nights it’s packed, making it one of the hottest spots for party addicts.

You won’t have to look very far to find dozens of sexy men and woman ready for a good time. After you pay the cover charge, drinks are free and brought to you frequently, so you don’t have to stop dancing to stand in a long line at the bar. When you need to take a break, you’ll be entertained with astonishing performances ranging from fire dances to live music. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a show from a big-name act like Lil Jon and Snoop Dogg, who frequently play at the venue. If you’re looking for a party truly crazy and out of control, this can be your first and last stop.

The fun is feverish in Cancun, so don’t waste your nights watching TV in your hotel. Until you’ve spent an hour drinking the best tequila in town and letting the rhythm of the music fully control your body, you don’t know how much you’ve been missing.
