Everything you need to know before partying in Cancun
The nightclubs in cancun are unique. As night falls, the Hotel Zone comes alive with the rhythm of music and lights from the nightclubs and bars, so follow this tips and tricks.
However, like any good trip, it is always better to be prepared. If you are planning to visit Cancun for the first time and it is in your plans to visit some nightclubs, we recommend the following Nightlife tips and trick:
Book in advance
Most nightclubs handle reservations, which will give you direct access to the club of your choice with a seat or what is known as a secured “table”, and of course, you will avoid the long lines.
Reservations are recommended for groups of people, for example, if you come with your group of friends, it is best to book in advance.
How to book Cancun Nightclubs?
You can book your access with authorized tour or travel agencies. If you travel directly with one, you can request help for your reservation, otherwise, you can book with the city’s tour agencies.
What happens if I don’t book?
Nothing happens if you don’t book, don’t worry. The only disadvantage will be that you will have to queue to enter and you will pay what is known as “Cover”, that is, the entrance, which can include an open bar.
Take into account that the price of the Cover is not the same as in all Cancun nightclubs.
Legal drinking age in Mexico
The legal drinking age in Mexico is 18 years and older. You will need to bring your ID with you to any nightclub where your date of birth is visible.
Are the nightclubs open every day?
Most of the Cancun nightclubs in the Hotel Zone are open every day. However, there are exceptions in which there will be some that only open from Friday to Saturday or from Thursday to Saturday.
Before visiting one, you should check the schedule in advance. The bars are the ones that you can find open every day and they usually open earlier.
There are two transportation options, taxi or bus. There are many bus stops that will drop you in front of the other side of your hotel, so you will have to be careful when crossing the street. If you choose to take a taxi, you can find it easily, as they are local taxis. Is the bus cheaper than the taxi? Yes, however, you must take into account that the bus can be very crowded and for more comfort, it is preferable to take a taxi or rent transportation (in case of a group of approximately 8 people).
Can I pay with dollars?
Yes, you can pay with dollars. Before paying in dollars, ask for the exchange rate. If you want to pay in Mexican pesos, you can find different ATMs at different points in the Hotel Zone.
What is the best nightclub in Cancun?
There is no such thing as the best nightclub, because they all have something unique that characterizes them. Everything will depend on the mood you are in and the type of music you like. If you still don’t know which nightclub to visit, we recommend Top 10: Nightclubs in Cancun.
