Owner description: Weave your way through crowds of half-naked and thoroughly inebriated college kids and dance the night away to pulse-pumping, eardrum-throbbing rhythms: this club is the mecca of Cancun's often rowdy nightlife.

All drinks were included and the show was "over the top"! Centrally located, it was a good time night out, overall!

“A little too crazy”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

This just was not my idea of relaxing or fun- but it is something to see and I would recomment going at least once. Its a fun club with a full show going on all night and great music. However, its very loud and the number of people they pack in- stepping on your feet- is what turned me off.

“Great Night Club”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Awesome night club. At least I have never been to a club like this before where they combined performances and dancing. Definitely a must visit place while you are in cancun. The only downside is the huge crowd and you get tired after a while standing. Also, ticket prices were expensive $60 per ticket

“Coco Bongo is a must-do, must-see!”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Don't listen to any negative reviews people have written about this place....unless you're BORING. It's impossible not to have a good time at Coco Bongo! Dancing, music, shows, confetti, drinks, beautiful people...it's all there! It's interactive and is more than just a night club. It's a night club and show all in one. The vibe is fun and positive with a wide range of music so you should be able to enjoy no matter what taste in music you have. I would definitely go there again when I'm in Cancun again!
My only tip would be to book with your hotel as a tour group...that way you pay one fee and you get transportation to and from Coco Bongo, endless drinks, NO LINE UP and your own designated spot in the club. Oh and if you aren't used to wearing heels all night long, I would suggest you wear flats or something comfy as you'll be dancing alllll night long! YOU HAVE TO GO TO COCO BONGO!!! It's an unforgettable experience.

“Had a great time!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

After reading some of the varied reviews of Coco Bongo, I’ll share our story & provide some tips if you’re planning on going.
We were at Coco Bongos on Friday Feb. 8th, 2013. We had a great time and feel that we definitely got our $70.00 USD worth of booze & entertainment for our night out.
We paid and got our VIP wrist bands from our Resort Entertainment staff. If you’re staying at a resort that offers this service USE IT! They drove us to the club from the resort & I was shocked to see the huge line ups (almost a block & half long). One of our resort entertainment staff escorted us past the main line up into a VIP line up (maybe 200 people in this line). He disappeared for a minute & when he returned he escorted us passed this VIP line up, straight through to security & to our table in the floor VIP section. Total time spent outside the club from the van to the table was less than five minutes… AMAZING considering the huge crowds outside the club, and show was about to start (time was close to 11:00pm).
The place was packed with people, standing room only; everyone just dances where they stand. Our server was fast, polite and we never once had empty glasses. We only tipped once at the end of the night & our tip reflected the quality of service we received. As for the reviewers stating that there is no fire exits, from our table on the floor two large double doors with “Emergency Exit” illuminated in both English & Spanish was clearly visible to the left of the stage.
The show was fun, enjoyable & had lots of audience participation. You will spend a lot of time covering your drinks, as confetti, streamers, bubbles, & balloons were being fired into the air often. Another tip to offer you is to avoid ordering fancy mixed drinks, we just drank beer and we never once ran out.
We left at about 3:30 am when the show wrapped up, and our server escorted us from our table to the nearest exit.
We would recommend checking out Coco Bongo’s show, but be prepared for the crowds, and standing (or dancing) throughout the show (4 hours+). Also book VIP tickets through the resort & ask prior to leaving as to where your seats will be, or have them escort you to your table.
