During the day Cancun is pretty laid back. That changes at night when both the Hotel Zone and downtown start rocking with music. It’s all here: salsa, meringue, flamenco, reggae, jazz, classical, disco, rock and roll, hip-hop and techno. Many restaurants do double duty as party centers with “all you can drink” specials and waiters who don’t hesitate to get up on stage and dance in between serving drinks. Discos and dance bars usually have taped music accompanied to high tech laser light shows with the occasional live band thrown in for good measure. The nightclubs, especially the Latin Clubs, all have live music and import some of the hottest bands from Latin America. Barhopping during happy hour (4 PM – 7 PM) is a great way to check out the different hotels and evening cruises have a high-energy, party atmosphere. For a taste of how the locals like to party head to one of the Salsa clubs or check out the clubs in the downtown area. There is usually a free evening concert in the downtown Parque de las Palapas and close by are some excellent jazz clubs featuring local musicians. Just choose your spot and you can dance until the wee hours of the morning.

If you’re not into the party scene, there is still plenty to do in the evenings. 

Many of the finest restaurants are only open in the evening and have live entertainment.You can go for dinner or have a drink in their bar watching the ocean, listening to the music.There are also a number of dinner-theatre places that have Caribbean or Mexican song and dance revues like the Ballet de Folkloricó de Cancun that performs nightly at the Convention Center.

For some real romance take one of the sunset or moonlight cruises. Both downtown and the Hotel Zone have state-of-the-art cinemas showing Hollywood blockbusters in English (with Spanish subtitles). Please see our site for cinemas for local show times. Shops in Cancun stay open until at least 10 PM. Whatever your mood, your age, your budget, Cancun has the nightlife for you to enjoy. To help you make up your mind, has listed some of the more popular nightlife attractions for you.
