Coco Bongo's: Partying in Puerto Plata
Well, as a young couple with no kids, me and my wife are still into clubbing. After having been to the Coco Bongo's in Cancun, and finding out there was also such a place in Puerto Plata we decided to pay a visit.
I have to say that this is not anything like the Coco Bongo's in Cancun. The only thing that is the same is their logo! The place is small and was packed on a Saturday night. Saw locals, but lots of tourists too. I didn't feel like I was getting ripped off with the prices on the drinks. The average well drinks are about US$4.50 and a beer costing US$3.00. A bargain coming from Miami.
Perhaps the place is a little too wild. This place is a place to come and get down on the floor! People get wasted and it gets to a point where the place is so packed that you cannot walk without pushing people out of your way.
Definitely recommend it to the party animals out there, but if your a little bit more laid back like me, you might like Lighthouse Lounge. Ill write a tip about it later!
Dress Code: Casual.
Mangu or CocoBongo?: Playa Dorada Complex
The unfortunate part of being at the Playa Dorada compound is we were limited to only 2 discotheques...Cocobongo, which is situated next to our hotel and Mangu another 4-5 blocks away. We checked them out, and it seems that Cocobongo is the popular one, while Mangu is almost like dead in the water, although I must admit Mangu have the "hot" Dominican dancers. Cocobongo is almost like a masquarade party 'coz their dancers have different characters; The mask, Beetlejuice, Spiderman (ew), along with the Riddler. If you don't pay attention to the dancers, I think you'll have a blast here for they have better music.
Dress Code: Anything goes! I was wearing flip flops, and a mini skirt.Related to:
Voodoo Lounge and others: Sosúa - Voodoo Lounge
Voodoo Lounge is onte of the most recent and classiest clubs in Sosúa. It broke a tradition of sex bars, creating a space where different kinds of people mix. Canadian run, lovely building, music and general atmosphere are not my personal preference though (mixture of Dominican yos, Ukrainian hookers, and groups of lost tourists). DJs on the weekends, karaoke wednesdays and sundays and very nice staff. Don´t miss it.
merengue and salsa
for a real taste of the Dominican music scene talk to the locals and dance the night away at one of the local merengue clubs. Like me though your western dance skills will feel very out of place in a clube where wiggling your boty is more an artform then danicng.
The club in Puerta Plata i visited was near the shipping area, ask at Sam's thats where i found directions.
Dress Code: absolutetly anythingRelated to:
Sams Bar & Grill: nice place to chat to the locals
nice food, nice drinks and just a nice pub/bar to drink in. the waitress was new so we had a good conversation with her. Sam's the dog and they sell souvenir t-shirts, i bought one for a friend.
Dress Code: Casual touristy clothes, they'd probably let you in naked if you had money stashedsomewhere
Crazy Moon: Nightlife is hard on the body...
At the crazy Moon , you can dance ALL the night on salsa, meringue, and some American song. The atmonphere is very excellent and don't worry girl, your not going to be alone for a long time...
And after a big night at Crazy Moon, I enjoyed falling asleep to the ocean sounds... Good Holidays...
Dress Code: nothing special

There is alway plenty of night life. After all you are in the Caribean.
These people will dance all night. A lot of the clubs stay open till the early hours or till the last person is off the dance floor.
Dress Code: In most disco's dress is casual.
The same here as most travels...
The same here as most travels i made, i was in an all inclusice hotel. And have to say that there was not a lot to do in the evening (there were just 4-16 people) but we amused ourselves. We went several times to Sosou but only to a terras and not to a dancing or something like that. You have to take care when you go out in the night !
The merenque is really great all over the Dominican. There is music everywhere, it doesn't matter if you stay in the hotel or if you go out...everywhere !!
Dress Code: Just go the way you are. If you like casual just go like that, if you like more dressed ...well go like that. YOU ARE ON HOLIDAY !!
There is a lot of nightlife at...
There is a lot of nightlife at Puerto Plata and Cabarete. At Puerto Plata it’s the best you have some inhabitant with you, because there are a lot of bars (and where do you need to go?). It’s difficult to find your way there. Better it is at Cabarete, a small village and nice and friendly people. And you don’t lose your way over there.
My favourite nightlife spot there was the “TORTUGA BAR”.
Find it out yourself ;-)))
Not under the age of 18.
Dress Code: Similar.
Mangu Disco Bar: Go dancing!!!
Very hot ....
Dress Code: No dress code, it seams like is the sexiest you are...
But we are in the South...normal!
anywhere you wnat: beer ??? what s that??
another shot of how you can get waisted in puerto plata. As you see ( picture ), a good apero before we go dance. Good luck everyone.
Dress Code: vacation casual

Although the nightlife on the resort grounds was great, we did venture off the compound a few times and really enjoyed 'Tucans' and 'Willies'. These are two dance clubs located in Sosua
