Cancun first became a popular tourist destination thanks to college students visiting for spring break in the mid-1990’s. Since then, due to high demand for fun and entertainment options, Cancun nightlife is world class and there are many bars and clubs where you can have a wild night out and about. Whatever kind of late night fun you are searching for, you are sure to find it in Cancun after dark.
Carlos n’ Charlie’s
A Cancun original nightlife legend is Carlos n’ Charlie’s. Its focus is on providing its guests with a carefree, fun environment and lots of good food and drinks. Live music and talented DJ’s keep the crowds energized from nightfall well into the early morning. The food and drinks menu is priced to please and tastes delicious, too! Try a refreshing, traditional margarita on the rocks with lime and salt! Viva Mexico!
The Grand Mambo Cafe
The best spot to dance Salsa, Merengue and Bachata in Cancun is called The Grand Mambo Cafe which is located in downtown Cancun. They have live music every night from Wednesday through Saturday, and if you come before 11 pm on Wednesdays you’ll get free cover and 2×1 beers all night. What a deal! Even better if you happen to be on vacation on your birthday, book a reservation as individuals celebrating their birthday get a free bottle of rum, tequila or vodka when you bring along 10 of your friends. Bottle service also gets you a premium table right next to the dance floor so you can enjoy your cocktails and dance all night!
A newer nightlife spot in Cancun is called La Vaquita which also has a location in Puerto Vallarta. It is a casual, open-air bar designed with the cow-print decor and you won’t be able to miss the sexy go-go dancers. Is beer your party drink of choice? If so, order yourself one of Cancun’s famous liters of beer. You certainly won’t go thirsty at La Vaquita!
The City is regarded as the largest nightclub in all of Latin America with a capacity for over 5,000 people. Despite its gigantic size, it is very popular and almost always packed with party goers enjoying its 3 stories with various stages and dance floors. Sometimes, acrobatic performers will entertain guests or you can watch music videos on one of their 650 square feet of video screens located throughout the club.
