CoCo Bongo, Cancún
I went to this bar a couple times when i was in Cancun and had a blast both times. The best time I had is when we got our own private table and our own server.
The shows are great.. you have from madonna to beetlejuice. I was there for Halloween and they had vampires swinging from the ceilings.
Really great time. definitely recommend getting the private table. You dont have to stay at it the whole time, but you have a place to put your stuff and personal service. We also order our alcohol by the bottle, sound crazy? it's actually pretty normal, much cheaper and no waiting in lines!
Dress Code: Fun warm vacation clothes
Dance till the sun comes up. Great music, live entertainers drop from the ceiling and perform on stages. Madonna, Michael Jackson, Spiderman, Beetlejuice, Lenny Kravitz include some of the impersonators that perform and lipsync to music while you dance. Great energy and packed with loads of people... You can dance on the bar or on the stage,anywhere your heart desires...There's hardly any tables in there, so everyone is standing up and dancing...while confetti flies from the ceiling...you need to see for yourself and experience it! Definitely recommended!
Dress Code: None that I noticed...wear whatever you want.
We were told that COCO BONGO was the best night club in town. You can dance to the mix of Rock and Pop, Hip-Hop, 70's & 80's, Salsa and Merengue, every night. The club offers live music nightly and oversized screens displaying the best in music videos.
CocoBongo's is the place to be if you want some fun filled nights out on the town.
It has a huge multi level dancefloor to keep you going plus some great spectacular stunt shows throughout the night. Whether you want to dance the night away with one of Mexico's fab cocktails or just sit and watch the shows then this is the place to go.
Dress Code: Smart Casual... whatever you want to wear really
Coco Bongo was probably the most impressive club in Cancun. It puts almost any American nightclub to shame. I absolutely enjoyed this club. The shows there are a must see. I mean they are absolutely out of this world, with high flying shows, and my favorite guest, the Mask. If any of you have seen the movie the Mask, you will no what I mean. The Jim Carey character is alive and well in Coco Bongo. Other wild shows include Michael Jackson's thriller, Spider-man, and Bettlejuice. It is also a great place to go and meet people. I met people from London, Spain, Brazil, and many from the states here. The only problem with this club is it is huge. It has 2 floors, but that does not compare to the hundreds of people who come. It can get crowded but overall it is awesome. David and our friends got there early and tried to stay relatively close to the bar. It is open til 3am, but try and get there early.
Dress Code: The dress code is a typical club dress. Most people wear polos and girls wear tanktops, and skirts or halter tops. Basically your typical clubbing clothes
This club is the best that I've been to! It was huge, with flashy lighting and design. There is no doubt that anyone who went there would have an awesome time. The entertainment and music were great; people were extended from the ceiling doing rope dances, balloons and streemers would fall from the ceiling every so often, there were four of five levels to dance on....including the bar. Areas of seating for break periods.
If you're ever in Cancun, this is the place to go on a Friday night
Dress Code: no sneakers
I looooved Coco Bongo!!!
The place is masssive, you will meet tons of people and you will have a blast!
There are live performances that will really amaze you. Everything from acrobats swinging from the ceiling to cabaret dancers, actors and singers! The energy is amazing and the place is well worth the money.

Dress Code: Anything goes......I saw some pretty creative outfits there!
One of the biggest and most popular places in Cancun. Don't be surprised if The Mask comes to serve you a Tequila, or Spiderman and Superman starts fighting. You might even see "Madonna" and "Michael Jackson" on stage. An incredible and huge place.
Excellent Night Club with Las Vegas style Show. You'll find people dancing on the bars, chairs and any spare space they can find, because there is no dance floor.
Best thing though was we managed to get a FREE Discount card from a Company that deals with British Soldiers, although we were told that the card would be given to anybody who applies for it. The card was also good for Discounted rates in about 30 other locations around Cancun.
If your going to Cancun, you should definately apply for this card.... big money saver & Express Pass.
Have Fun Folks, it's wonderful down there.
Dress Code: Shirt with sleeves (can be a t-shirt) shorts, jeans or trousers with sneakers or shoes....
Buy a ticket before 9PM to avoid an additional $5 charge. It was $40pp. Also, Tuesday is the special night at Coco Bongo (and apparently at many of the other clubs) and you can get in for half price or women get in for free, so check in with the salespeople who are always at a stall in front of the place to see when's the best time to come. Every day it looked like the place was packed, there was always a long line there at 10:15 which is when they start the line to get people in at 10:30pm. You wait for a bit, we got in at about 10:40pm but during the wait, there's a bartender giving out bottles of Dos Equis and what looked like pina colada.
Performances were great. There are about 40 of them every night. Mainly impersonators of like Beyonce, Madonna, Micheal Jackson, etc. There were also gymnasts that were doing stunts like Cirque de la Mer, etc around the center bar area so practically above the audience and were just outstanding to watch. The bartenders get into it as well with a great juggling type cocktail performance at one point that was just great. All helped to get the crowd going and there's always something coming up, very lively, exciting atmosphere.
They play all sorts of music - from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, to pop and whatnot. It got so crowded where we were dancing. It's a mix of a young crowd and an older, more subdued crowd. There are little bar tables to sit at but each and every one was reserved (might want to look into getting one reserved - there's no where else to sit but the steps!) when we got there.
Overall, it was great fun! If you have to choose one club to go to, which is what we did, definitely go to Coco Bongo! And get kamakazi shots!
Dress Code: Somewhat casual I guess you can say. Many men were wearing jeans or light slacks, while the women were wearing tank tops and skirts with sandals.
Cancun is famous all over the world for it's nightlife. When the sun goes down and a few drinks have been consumed Cancun really does spring to life. The nightlife starts late here in the clubs (usually earlier in restaurants) and can last into the wee hours of the next day. Nightclubs and discos offer special promotions and some lively contests, (bikini & male hot bod) usually during the week. Live music and DJ style music is featured in nightclubs and some interesting shows are occasionally featured. If you do a little homework you should be able to find something to interest anyone in you group. Call ahead to make sure you are going to get what you want in the way of entertainment.
Dress Code: Dress to Impress
This is such an awesome nightclub! We went on a Saturday night and was completely overwhelmed by the great atmosphere, the good music, and the amount of entertainment! It's not just a nightclub - they really put on a great show! There is some dancing on the bars in the centre of the dancefloor, and the whole club is shaped like an amphitheatre or stadium, so you get a great view! There isn't a long queue at the bars, and there are even some waiters that you can order from.
Definitely recommend this place for a fantastic night out!
The idea is good but when $45 to get in open bar which is expensive but it is not unacceptable being most of us have spent more than that amount in one night however this wasnt the case at Coco Bongo. My first drink i went up to the bar and the tender said if you give me a good tip ill give you good service so I attempted to give him around 4$ or so which he refused and said it wasnt enough after that point he refused to serve us. Also small selection of alcohol beer and a few mixed drinks small cups, long line and only one at at time! Also when you first walk up to the Bar they offer you a shot of some crap and then do a small act and ask for money don't take it they use the same shot glass for everone and didnt wash it, it wasnt possible there wasnt any running water near the bar!!!!
This place is spectacular if you are looking for a circus, but definetly not my favourite nightclub in the world. There are constant theatrics - people hanging from the ceiling, sword fights on the bar,etc., so it is certainly entertaining, but not a place I would want to spend too much time.
The drinks were terribly watered down and the lighting was horrible. I could hardly see where I was stepping and to make it worse there were ledges and steps all over the place. If the drinks werent so weak, I would worry about people hurting themselves :)
Its a place I think you have to see while you are in Cancun, but I dont think that its as great as it's cracked up to be.
Cancun's most talked about nite spot (and from where the scenes of 'The Mask' were shot.) I had to go to see what all the fuss was about.
The atmosphere on a Saturday night is buzzing with people - locals and tourists alike. Everybody is seen dancing just about everywhere. Even on the bar! They play all types of music (pop, rock, latin) and even feature live band appearances and shows. It's a great night if you're not tired from lounging on the beach all day.
The club is open from 10pm until the early hours of the morning.
Dress Code: Casual. No bathing suits.
