    Since the clubbers in Cancun consist mainly of tourists. There is really no way to predict which club is good on which night ahead of the time. It's probably safer to go with the flow the night of. Most of the clubs are together so you can just go to party zone and see where everyone is going.

    PS. Cocobongo sucks.

    I don't know who told you that.

    It's not a club, it's a place to watch cheesy shows. They switch the music (not just song wise but genre wise too randomly) every minute. It's really hard to dance to that. As soon as you get into the rhythm of one song, it's switched to something totally different. If you like watching shows, it's fine. But Cocobongo is not for clubbing.

    Congo Bar

    and Corona Bar are cool places to party. The good thing is they are both visible from outside you will know what the crowd is like and if it's your scene.

    Sweet is the best club

    The city is pretty good

    Mandala could be better if larger

    Basic is awful

    Ultra terrace is my after hours fav

    Dady o's is great

    Bulldogs was better this year than last.

    All those bars in the party zone are the same thing

    Slices- avoid
    Carlos and Charlies is laid-back and fun
    Terrasta has good rap music
    Congo is a party bar

    LOL @ Coco's having cheesy shows! I was under the impression it was a club that just had the shows in the background.

    I never heard of Sweet but I will take your advise and hit it up this weekend.

    Thanks NUNO for the breakdown! very helpful :)

    Pretty much spot on with exception of Basic. Basic when it's good it's really good. One of the best nights I had from all my 5 trips was white party at Basic. We need to stop going to Wet party at Basic, that's all.

    Sweet is awesome, I just want to emphasize it.

    I like Coco Bongo, not because it's a great conventional club but it is unique. It is something you won't find anywhere else, I always describe it as Cirque de Soleil with tequila to anyone I know that is going down. So I don't think it's fair to use the same yardstick as you would Dady O's or the City.

    If you want to see something different then go to Coco Bongos but if you want more typical club or bar atmosphere pick a different spot, simple as that!
