|About these ratings|
Considered the spot for nightlife in Cancún, Coco Bongo isn't your traditional, DJ-controlled nightclub. Instead, thousands of travelers pack the house to witness non-stop performances from a plethora of performers. According to the New York Times, a typical night at Coco Bongo involves gymnasts performing "Cirque du Soleil-style feats," accompanied by "smiling dancers" with each show ending in "an orgasmic burst of confetti."
While the club is a non-stop amalgam of cocktails and dancers, there is no traditional dance floor. This fact surprises -- and even upsets -- many travelers expecting a traditional nightclub. Don't come to Coco Bongo if you just want to dance to a DJ. There are plenty other clubs along Zona Hotelera that you'll prefer. But if you're seeking some stage antics and endless performances, Coco Bongo is definitely worth a try. Be prepared to pay a small cover charge for entry. Writers and travelers both warn that lines can be long on the weekends and during the high season.
