Cancun Nightlife- Clubs, Bars & Nightlife Tips

Cancun Nightlife

Cancun is a city in Mexico and a popular destination for travelers from around the world. Located on the Yucatan Peninsula and bordering the Caribbean Sea, Cancun offers plenty to do, day and night.


If you want to dance, drink, and stay up until the early hours of the morning, checkout Cancun’s nightclubs. Senor Frogs and Carlos n Charlie’s are the most famous stops in Cancun. Senor Frogs is a popular hangout for Spring Breakers and is a huge party scene throughout the year. Carlos n Charlie’s is a restaurant and bar, but also hosts live music, dancing, and performances. Fat Tuesday’s, The City, çare a few others, but there are many more in the area worth checking out, too. When you get to town, walk downtown, near the beaches, and you’ll find several places to stop, have a drink, and let loose.

Restaurants and Bars

While in Cancun, you’ll have more than a few dining options. You can grab a table at the more commercialized spots, like Margaritaville, Bubba Gump, or Hard Rock Cafe, or search for less well-known restaurants, frequented by locals. Talk to your travel agent and your hotel staff and ask them where to eat while you’re in town.

If you want a drink, but don’t want to fight the line at Senor Frogs, head to Grand Mambo Cafe, Tequila’s, Baja Beach Club Bar, or Slices, a lively outdoor bar in the heart of Cancun. The drinks are expensive, but there’s no cover and they have an extensive cocktail menu.
