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 nonstop performances from acrobats, conga lines, live bands and musician impersonators. A typical night at Coco Bongo involves projected videos, balloons, soap bubbles and confetti. 

While the club is a nonstop amalgam of cocktails and dancers, there is no traditional dance floor. This fact surprises – and even upsets – many travelers expecting a conventional nightclub experience. Don't come to Coco Bongo if you just want to dance to a DJ; there are plenty of other clubs along the Hotel Zone that you'll prefer. But if you're seeking some stage antics and endless performances, Coco Bongo is definitely worth a try. Most travelers say that they had a great night at Coco Bongo, even if their seats offered poor views, there were long lines for drinks, and the cover charges were too expensive. 

The club welcomes visitors daily from 10:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. Be prepared to pay a sizable cover charge for entry: online ticket prices range from $80 to $195, though prices include unlimited domestic drinks from 10:30 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. And be warned: lines to get in can be long on the weekends and during the high season. For more information, visit Coco Bongo's website.
