Cancun is reknowed for its unparalled nightlife and is home to many bars and nightclubs. Some are places to see & be seen or even to hob-nob with celebrities, while others are no-frills places where you go for a casual night out, but they all have one thing in common... dancing. Lots and lots of dancing. Dancing on the floor, dancing in the aisles and dancing on the bar.
There is a major "party vibe" in Cancun and the loud, pulsating rhythms get everybody moving. The bars and clubs play mostly dance music and hip-hop, but they also throw in a little rock and roll, Latin rhythms and some techno to mix things up a bit.
Mandala is one of Cancun's most popular nightspots. The dance floor is smack in the middle of the club, so you can keep an eye on the crowd while shaking your booty. The City is a massive club and the main floor is a gigantic dance floor (with a bar and some tables here and there). During busy times of year, like Spring Break, that huge dance floor is filled with partygoers. Senor Frog's, Coco Bongo, and Congo encourage dancing on the bar.
For live Latin music like Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia and Bachata, Grand Mambo Cafe in downtown Cancun is your best bet.
In a city which hosts millions of visitors from around the world, dancing is a universal language that connects them all.
