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.

Brilliant – we loved this place and went with VIP tickets which IMO are well worth the money for the better service, viewing platform and overall experience. The show was spectacular and constant, the drinks great and service very attentive.

The price was 140 usd each in VIP and 80 in general. This includes your drinks. If you are a non-drinker it could well seem expensive. If you drink like a fish it will be reasonably priced.

Tips; get there early, even if you are in the VIP section to get the best seats (you can relax and drink in the bar downstairs until they call you up). Tip the barman up front – we had non-stop flowing drinks all night and they did not seem to be watered down which is a shock for Cancun. I didn’t want to drink that much and had to tell him to change my rum for water.

Don't purchase a ticket unless you absolutely are going to go because they will not give you a refund.

My wife and I were staying at an all-inclusive resort south of Cancun and were offered a trip to Coco Bongo as part of the representatives list of attractions in the area. The cost was US$140 each - about £85 - which I thought was excessive, but there again it did include transport, all drinks, and entertainment. We went along with other guests with a promise of a pick up time of 3.00am, and we were all wondering how on earth we were going to stay awake until that time.
On arrival the place was teeming with people and we ended up in a high position overlooking what can best be described as an arena, with screens and a stage at one end. This turned out to give us a really good view of all of the proceedings. The drinks kept coming thick and fast from very hard working waiters, and the tv monitors stated that the show would start at 11.00pm .
The show started dead on time, and it was one of the most spectacular and professionally delivered shows that I have ever seen. It was three and a half hours of non-stop high quality excitement. There were tribute acts who might just as well have been the real thing, dancers with legs that went on forever, trapese acts, Spiderman and Captain America flying about fighting villains and generating Hollywood style effects. The whole thing was magnificently staged. The highlight for me was introduced by a 'Gladiator' style film clip ending with the image '33AD' on the screen, whilst several gymnasts descended from the roof in crucifix poses. It was simply breathtaking. Their routine was spectacular.
The mix of video, live action, lighting effects and pyrotechnics was timed to perfection. The time went by so quickly, it was hard to believe that the show had lasted so long. In the end, staying awake was easy, and it was certainly a value for money experience. Highly Recommended !

We bought VIP from our resort representative. For $65 he took us from the resort to congo bar for a couple free drinks and then to coco bongo for our VIP table where the dancers danced on. The show is amazing! The waiter came a couple times at the beginning but then it is faster to go to the bar and grab a drink. A tip will go a long way and they will remember you and make sure you get a drink. We had so much fun here I cannot wait to go back! There are no other bars that compare to Coco Bongo...

We went to Coco Bongo Playa del Carmen on Saturday 12th October, we were picked up at 9:45pm, got there for about 10.10pm, we paid about £60 each for VIP tickets, which is where you are sitting down and have a waiter, therefore no need to go to the bar, we sat in a corner just under the stage (didnt have the best view when sitting dow, but you end up standing up most of the night dancing, so you had a decent enough view of the stage) on our table we had two bottles of bacardi, and the waiter John brought us two drinks each at a time, so you always had a drink in your hand. The show itself was incredible, me and two friends were taken up on to the stage and was having a boogie with the professionals, was a very fun night, (aswell as a very drunk one) If your staying in Mexico, you should definitley go to Coco Bongo, its well worth it! Yes, it dows get rather crowded but what do you expect for a place that holds 2000 people? We had our own little platform sort of thing in the corner so it wasnt too bad, but anywhere else, you are going to be a little bit squashed, but by the end of the night, with all the dancing and drinking, you wont be that bothered about it!
