Spring Break in Cancún Beach parties and nightlife
Since so many of you wrote to me and wanted a blog post on the subject of “Spring Break in Cancún Beach Parties and Nightlife”, I naturally preferred this post for you.
Spring Break in Cancún begins in late February and runs through late March.
How do you recognize Spring Break in Cancun? The beaches in Cancún are a lot busier and you’ll find young adults drinking alcohol on every corner. Spring Break in Cancún is the equivalent of Ballermann in Mallorca in my opinion.
There is the “Mandala Beach Club” Km. 8.5 Blvd.
Kukulcan, Zona Hotelera, 77500 Cancún, QR There are parties every day; the music is adapted according to the daily audience. The beach club has a “party pool” opposite the DJ desk, a children’s pool, a bar, beach loungers, four-poster beds and a VIP area. All in all a beautiful resort on a gorgeous beach.
The prices start at 500 pesos minimum consumption for a lounger on the beach (be careful, you are not allowed to use the “party pool”, I personally find this pool just disgusting because it is very small and the people who use it very, very rarely visit the sanitary facilities), 1000 pesos for a lounger by the pool to the beds and the VIP area with its own jacuzzi, where you have to order bottles. The party is usually a bit quieter and there are only a few people dancing.
On the other hand, if you want to really let it rip
I can recommend the Spring Break Party in Cancún at the Grand Oasis Hotel . Every Saturday in March at the ” Grand Oasis Hotel ” Km. 16.5, Boulevard Kukulcan Lt45-47, Zona Hotelera, 77500 Cancún, QR a huge party on the beach with renowned DJs from all over the world. The Grand Oasis Hotel is a very nice luxury hotel and, in my opinion, can be recommended all year round.
I stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend for one day in November. The Day Pass cost less than half and of course it was much more relaxed.
On Spring Break, the huge hotel is “cut in half” with one side accessible to spring breakers and the other for hotel guests only. My girlfriends and I also stayed at this hotel last Saturday via Day Pass. Costs 1,960 pesos, but party, food and drinks included.
We met at the hotel at 10 a.m. and first plundered the lavish breakfast buffet. After that we wanted to get an overview of the hotel and at the same time we were looking for a way to order a delicious Piña Colada.
Unfortunately in vain. There are only two bars where we could order our drinks and they were in the water. We desperately searched for what felt like an hour for other options without success. That was the first thing we all didn’t like at all.
On the other hand, there was an absolute excess of men in the hotel. However, this seems to be a general problem in Cancún on Spring Break, even in the evenings.
The VIP area with four-poster beds opposite the DJ desk was only accessible after prior reservation and orders for bottles. In my opinion, a clear MUST, because otherwise you’re like a sardine in a can, totally squashed, without seeing anything, just standing in the middle of the way.
We stayed at the VIP and the atmosphere was good and the music was ok. The music wasn’t bad, but with all the hype about Afrojack, who put on what felt like 3 songs at some point around 4 p.m., it wasn’t a highlight.
We still had a lot of fun and it was really funny. I especially enjoyed the party because I only knew it from TV and had been wanting to be there live for 2 years. The party at the Grand Oasis Hotel is THE spring break party in Cancún if you want to experience a beach party during the day.
Let’s get to Spring Break Nightlife.
As you have also seen in my instastory we were in Coco Bongo Boulevard Kukulcan Km. 9.5, Zona Hotelera, 77500 Cancún, QR Coco Bongo is a disco with shows. It’s always busy, but my absolute favorite place here in Cancún. Admission costs about 80 USD and you have open bar. Unfortunately, the alcohol isn’t of the best quality and you’re bound to get a headache the next day. However, the alcohol is not of good quality in any club in Cancún, I have to say. The shows are great and vary by event (Spring Break, Halloween, etc), this club is well worth the money and all of my friends have loved the club so far because it’s just fun and fun. You can also buy into the VIP area for about 130 USD, this includes a better range of drinks and you are not as squashed as in the normal area.
In my opinion, these are other good clubs
“mandala” Boulevard Kukulcan Km 9, Zona Hotelera (admission is around USD 60 and also includes Open Bar) and the “Palazzo” Boulevard Kukulkan 9, Benito Juárez, 77500 Cancún, QR (admission is around USD 55, also Open Bar).
The “La Vaquita” (open bar for about 35 USD), “Congo Bar” (about 20 USD entry), “Dady O” (open bar for 60 USD), “The City” (open bar for about 65 USD) I personally didn’t particularly like. I can’t explain to you in detail why, I just didn’t like the “energy” in the clubs and the audience wasn’t my thing either.
The “Fat Tuesday” Boulevard Kukulkan, Zona Hotelera, 77500 Cancún, QR is more of a bar and a good place for a cocktail, but this place doesn’t invite me to linger. At least the “Fat Tuesday” costs no admission.
Last but not least the “Senor Frogs” Boulevard Kukulcan Km. 9.5, Zona Hotelera, 77500 Cancún, QR (Open Bar for approximately $65). It’s open every day, although the best days are said to be Wednesday (The Foam Party) and Sunday (The Glow Party at Senor Frogs). Unfortunately, I can’t give you an opinion on this because I haven’t seen the inside of the club yet. However, it is still on my TO-DO list. As soon as I have looked at the club, I will of course tell you about it in detail!
