Spring Break & Nightlife in Cancun

There are many fantastic party destinations around the world but few can top the spring break destination of Cancun. The party never stops in Cancun.

In the day there's parties at pools and beaches while at night, the party continues at the incredible nightclubs.

The nightlife area is in the Hotel Zone. In this area you will find Kukulcan Blvd and the great nightclubs and bars that make Cancun an unbelievable night out.

The nightlife here gets busy at around 11pm and keeps going until the next day. The party can keep going until 10am if spring break is on!

Another area is downtown Cancun. This place has bars, nightclubs and restaurants to enjoy. However, the area is less busy than the party area of the Hotel Zone. The nightlife here is for everyone.

So if you are going away with friends, family or as a couple you are sure to enjoy the nights out here.

Cancun is a very busy destination. You can go to Cancun and party throughout the year including New Years Eve. However the busiest and recommended time to go is in the spring break months (March and April) and the summer months (June, July and August).

Spring break is definitely a must. The drinking age in Mexico is 18 so lots of Americans come here to have a great time.

In many of the clubs you don't pay by the drink. Instead you buy an Open Bar package - you pay one fee and this allows for the club entry and free drinks for the night. Within the price you get table service, a bottle of spirit and mixer.

You can buy open bar packages from nightclubs, bars, tour companies and even your hotel. You will find that many of the hotels and tour companies provide ‘Nightlife Tours’. In the price you get transportation and an open bar.

The Open Bar packages are really good value and worth doing but if you don't want to, then you can still go for the other option which is paying for an entry fee to the club and then paying for drinks at the bar.

Bar crawls in Cancun are very popular and very fun to do. There are many bar crawls to go on and they are a great way to meet new people and experience the great nightclubs and bars.
