5 ways to take Cancun nightlife by storm

One tequila, two tequila, three tequila more

Whether you’re on Spring Break, celebrating a bachelorette weekend, or are simply enjoying some time off from work, one thing is undoubtedly clear—your trip to Cancun isn’t complete until you take advantage of its world-famous nightlife. From all-you-drink bar cards to VIP party passes, there’s no end to the things to do in Cancun to help you blow off some steam. Here are seis of our favorite ways to take the city’s nightlife by storm.
1. Señor Frog’s with Open Bar
Party until dawn at Señor Frog’s, a casual eatery that turns legendary nightclub once the sun goes down. Come early if you want to have dinner, and then stay past 9 when the bar opens with all-you-can-drink mojitos, margaritas, and the signature punch. As the hotspot says, there’s “no worrying about silly rules and regulations” when you’re at Señor Frog’s. Dance on tables and twirl around chairs as the DJ spins the hottest tracks. Though every night is a wild ride, Sundays and Wednesdays are especially fun. Come Sunday for an epic glow-in-the-dark paint party, or hit the club on Wednesday for a chance to dance in a room full of foam.

2. Chuchito Pérez Culinary or Cocktail Experience
Not every night out in Cancun is filled with a memory-busting amount of alcohol. (Though a lot of them are.) The city is also home countless amounts of eateries serving up mouthwatering cuisine, including Chuchito Pérez. Located between the beach and Nichupté Lagoon in the heart of Cancun, this picturesque restaurant offers unforgettable food with a side of stunning views. With this exclusive experience offered by Sofa Entertainment, linger over traditional Mexican dishes such as skirt steak and bone marrow tacos, Yucatecan fried tortillas with slow-roasted pork, and decadent flan topped with a caramel cream. If you want to turn things up a notch, you also have the option to share 5 margacheve cocktails—a beer turned upside-down into a margarita—or enjoy a tasting of some of the region’s top-quality tequila.

3. Coco Bongo Vegas-Style Show with Open Bar
Spring Break meets Sin City at Coco Bongo, one of the hottest clubs in the heart of Cancun. Skip the line and head straight into the party, where nightly stage shows combine live music, exhilarating salsa performances, and jaw-dropping aerial acrobatics. Hit up the bar for unlimited drinks all night long, from local spirits and beer to refreshing cocktails. When the mood strikes, head to the dance floor to join a conga line that sways to the sounds of a live DJ. Come the end of the night, keep an eye out for celebrations that can leave you covered in everything from soap bubbles to balloons.
