CoCo Bongo Cancun
This favorite nightlife franchise boasts three locations in the Caribbean—Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and Punta Cana. Each location features a huge video screen and seating on multiple levels for viewing the productions, along with festive touches like soap bubbles, balloons, confetti, and streamers. You’ll find plenty of skip-the-line booking options, and some even include an open bar for groups. This can be advantageous to avoid long lines at the door and bar during busy times.
Things to Know Before You Go
CoCo Bongo isn’t a traditional nightclub with a DJ, but you’ll find those nearby if you’re planning on a club crawl.
Wear comfortable shoes since you’ll likely be standing most of the night.
The venue can become extremely crowded, especially during peak times.
CoCo Bongo may not be the most wheelchair accessible venue.
How to Get There
Located in Cancun’s Hotel Zone, one block from the Caribbean Sea, CoCo Bongo is within walking distance from most accommodations. Taxis are also readily available in the area and bar-hopping tours typically include the venue on their routes. Keep in mind that most skip-the-line ticket options don’t include transportation.
When to Get There
On the weekends and during high season (from December to April), lines to get into CoCo Bongo can be long. If you want to avoid the crowds, stop by on a weeknight. The venue opens in the evening and doesn't close until the early hours of the morning, but the shows end a few hours earlier; however, you can stay and dance until closing. Some tickets will also give you access until half an hour before closing.

Two of Cancun’s other hot nightclubs—Carlos'n Charlie's and Señor Frog's—offer similar VIP service packages with open bar and skip-the-line access, and are located right next door to CoCo Bongo. These spots don’t offer the range of performances like CoCo Bongo, but visitors can still expect plenty of fun party vibes with a spring break–style atmosphere and funky cocktails.
