Cancun Nightlife 2019

Spring break is here, and one of the favorite destinations to go and relax from class is Cancun, yes you will be able to Rest and Tan under the Sun that hits the Caribbean beach, and even participate in sports matches against other schools, on the day to day activities from the Resort.

But what about, when the Sun goes down, what else is to do in Cancun you might ask?, well today I'm going to give you the Nightlife tour.

Cancun has a great variety of Nightclubs, Discos, and bars, in the hotel zone, where I could find Vegas-style night shows, concert halls with world known DJs, and all kind of Bars where there are music rhythms, like Jazz, Rock, Reggae and more.

This compilation of nightclubs I am doing are ordered alphabetically, so there is no preference one from the other. Most of these Nightclubs are in the heart of the hotel zone, and only 20 min away from the Club Solaris Resorts.

El Restaurante de Carlos y Charlies en Cancun

Antique Puerto Cancun

Well let me tell you that this Is a chic nightclub located in the most exclusive zone in the city, It's not hard to get there, but you do have to take a Taxi, it is small, but the architecture is just beautiful inside, they only allow up to 250 people, that's what makes it very exclusive, they have a combination of Pop/ Electronic music from Thursday thru Saturday that kept me dancing until 5 am in the morning, there is a cover charge, drinks are above average price, nothing to break the bank. Oh and one last thing they have a 23 or older entry rule.

Carlos & Charlies

Yes I know, it is a family Restaurant but is also a fun bar, this is the perfect combination, I went there to have dinner, and stay to enjoy the show, Sing and Dance alongside the Waiters, man it is a great experience, they feature either a live band, or music from the DJ, the staff is always joking around, making your time really pleasant, the food is delicious, and they also have an open bar, great combination right ? I went in on my bathing suit and Slippers, so you're fine as no dress code is required, not expensive at all. I did miss Thursdays Salsa class, that means I'll be back soon again.


El Club Nocturno Cocobongo en Cancun

May I start by telling you that the whole concept of the Disco it's very cool, as it honours the greatest artists of all time in every single way, walking thru hallways, sitting at the outside bar, or enjoying the night shows daily, Its open bar, so You need to get early, or the lines in, are going to be insane, once in, the design of the place is like an arena, with 3 floor seating, 3 bars, one of which is in the center, and then later the night becomes another stage, the main stage its up in front of everyone, with an enormous big screen Tvs on the back, this stage has witness impersonating shows from Michael Jackson, Madonna, Beyonce, and the Iconic Mask show, dancers and singers also are acrobats,the audio and lightshow is the best that you can see anywhere, they change the shows every couple of months, but it is entertaining from beginning to end, there is an 18 + entry and casual dress wear, the open bar is actually at a reasonable price, if you consider all the shows you experience during the night. I could hang there every single night, but I had to continue with my tour.

The City

This is a massive concert hall, and its impressive because it's in the party zone in Cancun, well-known artists and DJs have come to play at this Venue, I wasn't lucky enough, but still had a great time there with the resident DJ playing pop, hip hop and electronic music, the building is 3 stories high, so you can bet that they are multiple bars there, also a dance floor that its retractable, can move from the third floor to the bottom one , it's only open on Fridays, and concerts on Tuesdays, has bottle service or open bar.

Chicabal Sunset Club en Cancun

Extra :

Chicabal Sunset club, this is a brand new beach club, just 2 months old, but with great potential, located on the lagoon side and away from the party zone, but nevertheless, its concept its so cool, You can arrive thru the street side, or dock your yacht, has a luxury concept, mixed in with the natural beauty of the Sunsets in Cancun, there is a cover, that it's also used as a restaurant and bar credit, to use during your stay, they only open on the weekends, and close after the sun goes down. The music it's an electronic, house and trance mixology, they have a swimming pool, cabanas, and lounge beds, the dress code is beachwear, but it's chic casual, and they are very strict about it.

Get in touch with the entertainment team from Royal Solaris Cancun, as nightly we go out in town ( they provide the transportation over there ), but the cover is on each one of us, they have different nightclubs they attend each day, so that's a plus the hotel provided our group. The departure from the hotel is a 10 pm, no exceptions so be ready to go just right after dinner.
