Cancun Clubs and Nightlife

Cancun has really made a name for itself for being one of the top party destinations in the world for Spring Break and beyond; for good reason. New York is known as the city that never sleeps, but Cancun is truly the city where you can party until the sun comes up!

You can choose from a wide selection of nightlife options. The ambiance ranges from laid-back pub style, elegant VIP scene, all the way to multi-level dance floors with 5000 fellow partyers!

If you're a party-aholic looking to cut loose and dance the night away to some of the best international beats, Cancun has massive clubs to fill that need. With go-go dancers and jaw-dropping special effects, you can get lost in the lights and the music. This huge party scene draws some of the best DJs in the world.

Cancun provides a lot of fun-loving establishments like Carlos 'n Charlie's, Senor Frog's and Hard Rock Cafe. The mood here is casual, celebratory and fun; with regular live-music performances as well.

Various other sports bars, pubs and local cafes offer food, drink and entertainment late into the night. Most of these are located in the central part of the hotel zone (kms 7-10 on the strip).


Transportation is fairly easy along the Cancun hotel strip, with options for every budget. Ask your hotel concierge for current bus and shuttle schedules, or to hail you a cab. There are plenty of taxis available to take you wherever you need. It's a good idea to decide on a price before you get inside for the ride. (Just a note: If you're staying at the north end of the hotel zone, you're within walking distance of the party scene!)

"CunCrawl" is one of several services that provide transportation to multiple clubs. You can party the night away like a superstar! For one fee, your entry to 3 clubs and all your drinks are included. It starts at around $75 USD per person.

Searching Availability...


The local government recognizes that tourism is the financial mainstay. They put forth a lot of effort to make sure tourists are safe and any trouble is minimized. A regular police presence exists throughout the hotel zone and especially in the club district. In addition to that, the clubs have their own security.

However, because it's such a huge party scene, by the end of the night there tend to be people who aren't thinking clearly. Caution is needed here just like in any big city! Keep a close eye on your personal belongings, since petty theft is probably the most frequent problem.

Ladies--be aware of your personal space! If you're a clubber, you already know the way alcohol affects inhibitions…and the ability to take No for an answer! As is the case anywhere, it's smart to keep your drink with you and exercise caution when mingling with people you don't know.

If suntanning all day and dancing all night sounds good to you--Cancun is the place to be!
