When the sun sets in Cancun it’s time to get the party started (or continued)

The nightlife in Mexico is one of the biggest draws – the drinking age is 18, so if you’re under 21 you’ll still have no trouble partying the night away, drink in hand. Wondering about the best place to party in Cancun? Here’s our guide to the most popular nightclubs and whether they make Cancun for spring break worth it.


Playing a mixture of top 40 hits and house music, Mandala is the perfect place if you’re looking for the best music to party your night away. You’ll also get to enjoy fabulous drinks at the open bar 7 days a week, and the club boasts one of the most luxurious VIP rooms in Cancun. Mandala is a must-visit for true partyholics.

Coco Bongo

Coco Bongo markets itself as putting ‘Vegas nightlife to shame’, and honestly they’re no wrong! The club has cemented itself as one of the city’s most legendary nightclubs, and a must visit for all spring breakers. You’ll find nightly shows of dancing, live music, and even the odd circus performance. The electric atmosphere at the club makes it one of the best places to party in Cancun. Booking our Bongo Tour Party Hopper means you’ll be able to experience everything the nightclub has to offer and a night to remember for years to come. Coco Bongo alone is one fantastic reason to visit Cancun for spring break.

A night out at Dady’O is guaranteed to be a night to remember. It’s the perfect place for spring breakers as it puts on a variety of themed nights and has regular celebrity guest hosts. It also holds beach body contests for you to show off your stuff. If you want a night of dancing, incredible drinks, and all round good fun, Dady’O is one of the best places to go for a night out in Cancun.


If you find yourself wanting a change from the usual spring break nightclubs, here are our picks for the best additional activities to indulge in while on your vacation.

Dancer Party Boat

Okay, so technically this one is still in a similar vein to your regular spring break activities. But, if you want a party experience that is a little different to the norm, this party boat is just the thing for you. The full day excursion can even includes a visit to the Maya Meco ruins and a snorkeling stop.



Tulum is located quite a way outside of Cancun, but if you get the opportunity it’s well worth a visit. It was one of the last civilizations built by the Mayans and offers a fascinating day out for a group of friends. It was also voted one of the world’s top destinations on the rise in 2016, so make sure it’s on your list of places to visit.
