Live an Authentic Mexican Party in Cancun

There are a lot of places where you can live an authentic Mexican party in Cancun.

Besides the great flavors of Mexican cuisine and their rich traditions, another key ingredient of a Mexican Fiesta is the genuine passion for partying of the friendly Mexicans.

Where can I live an authentic Mexican party in Cancun?

Cancun is a party zone and it is in Mexico, so there are many options to choose from! You can celebrate in a fine dining restaurant, a fun restaurant bar, or a theme park.

Here are our recommendations of places to live an authentic Mexican party in Cancun:


In Xoximilco you will party on board a colorful  “trajinera” (Mexican gondola) while you eat the most delicious Mexican food and enjoy Mariachi music. The staff in your “trajinera” may organize fun games and activities. You will sing, dance, eat, and laugh a lot!

My recommendation is that if you like tequila, for your safety, make sure that it includes transportation when booking your tour to Xoximilco.

Xcaret’s Night Show

You can’t miss the wonderful Xcaret Night Show, where more than 300 artists bring to life Mexican history and culture in a world-class show.

Don’t worry if you have decided not to spend all day at the park; you can only book the night show.

If you decide to have dinner in the “Gran Tlacho” (that is the theater’s name), you will enjoy a seven-course gourmet dinner and a bottle of excellent wine.
