When you manage to escape the icy clutches of winter and a boring corporate job for a little sun in the sun, it is a major cause for celebration for you and your pals. So why not plan your getaway to the Mayan Riviera in Mexico, where the hot sand is as white as the snow you left behind in the Great White North, and parties are very bit as lively as the energy-filled locals that call this paradise home.
When you touch down in a holiday destination, you just can’t wait to sample the local firewater, and groove to the beat of the music that it embraces. No matter where you go on the Yucatan Peninsula’s finest coast, the life at night welcomes enthusiastic customers on a nightly basis, but depending on where you are, the vibe may differ from place to place.
The following major centers of Cancun, Playa Del Carmen and Cozumel have a different flavor for those that want to partake of the nightlife in the Mayan Riviera, so check out the briefings below and pick the city that is your spirit animal insofar as the bar culture goes…
While this part of Mexico isn’t the best place to go for culture, if your idea of a great party involves over the top throwdowns where seemingly anything goes, then Cancun is the ideal place for you and your party clan. Some of the most off-the-hook nightclubs in all of Mexico can be found here, with top performers and DJ’s flying in from around the world to entertain thousands of the music loving masses.
Be sure to go to Senor Frog’s at least once to ride their famous water slide out of the bar and into the gorgeous lagoon that sits outside … after all, when will you have the chance to do that in a bar anywhere else in the world?
Playa Del Carmen
If the overbearing nature of Cancun’s nightspots are a bit much for you, but you still like hitting the town after dark, Playa Del Carmen may be more your style. The locus of nightlife activity in Playa is along 5th Avenue, where a wide variety of restaurants also allow you to grab a quality meal before getting down to the serious business of making beer disappear into your stomach.
Those that want to party on a legit Caribbean island within Mexico will have their desires fulfilled by boarding the ferry from Playa Del Carmen to Cozumel. Here, the crowd verges a bit older due to the higher concentration of cruise ship business, but they are no less fun, as the nature of this tourism dictates that these folks are here for a good time, not a long time.
