USA Today collaborator and Cancun resident Kristin Busse shares her experiences and discoveries with others through writing and social media. A local party expert, Kristin offers tips about enjoying nightlife in Cancun in this post…

Cancun is a vacation destination that boasts world class resorts and dining, wide white sand beaches and the aqua blue Caribbean Sea, but Cancun may be best known for its outstanding and often outrageous nightlife. And the party won’t stop ’til the sun comes up.

It all started when college students discovered this tropical paradise and turned it into one of the world’s top Spring Break spots some 20 years ago, but Cancun’s nightspots rock all year long and all ages are welcome to join the party. In any given club on any given night you’ll find partygoers that range from the age of 18 (legal drinking age in Mexico) to mid-50s and older.

Cancun’s many nightclubs, including the wildly popular Coco Bongo, The City and Mandala, may have long lines of people waiting to get inside, but the party is worth the wait.

Remember, many clubs and some bars will not allow you to buy one drink at a time. Instead they sell open bar bracelets which allow you to pay one price to enter the club and drink all night.

Reserving a table in the VIP section of a club and purchasing bottles of liquor is an excellent option but it is substantially more expensive than the open bar alternative. If you want to visit many nightclubs in one evening, consider one of Cancun’s bar hopping tours.

Visit Cancun and experience it’s unparalleled nightlife firsthand. You’re in for the time of your life.
