5 Popular Places to Party in Mexico

Unlike in the USA, where you need to be 21 to drink, the legal age for drinking in Mexico is only 18, making it a popular destination amongst younger travellers.


Some of the best party places in Mexico are likely to be found in Cancun, always a favourite holiday destination for spring break and partying tourists. However, you’ll be able to find clubs and bars throughout all of Mexico, offering tourists the experience of a lifetime.

If you’re planning the great escape to the party capital of the world, be sure to check out these not to be missed places.


The most well-known party destination, throughout all of Mexico, Cancun is the home of Spring Break, Reality Television and people who just want to get wild!

Luxury accommodation and an indescribable amount of nightlife options make Cancun the number one destination for party goers! If you’re looking for the biggest daiquiris in Cancun, head to the Fat Tuesday Club for a great night out.

Puerto Vallarta

Second to Cancun, Puerto Vallarta is the party place in Mexico. Located in Banderas Bay, just west of Mexico City, you’ll find a number of venues where you can party until the sun rises – and continue during the day, if you can handle it!

If you’re partying in Puerto Vallarta be sure to check out Collage and Senor Frog’s for a fun-filled night of bikini contests, dancing and drinking competitions!

Mexico City

Being the gateway to most other destinations in Mexico, Mexico City provides a varied assortment of clubs and bars, suited for all tastes and budgets. Whilst some of the more coastal regions may have higher prices, mainly found at resort bars, it is easy to find an affordable night out when in Mexico City.

If you decide to stay in Mexico City, your hotel concierge will be able to recommend some bars closest to your accommodation.

Los Cabos

Filled with luxurious resorts, Los Cabos is a paradise for tourists. Whether you like to party in style, at one of the many swanky resort bars, or take your chances on the streets of Mexico, you’re bound to have a great time in Los Cabos.

Found in the most southerly parts of the Baja California Peninsula, Los Cabos is a typical beach community – what better way to set the scene for a night of partying, than sipping on margaritas by the ocean?

Playa del Carmen

Situated on the North-Eastern Coast of Mexico, Playa del Carmen is truly a coastal paradise. While at first it may not seem that this is the place to party, when the lights go down, an abundance of trendy, beachside bars await you.

If you’re looking for the ultimate party experience, try booking one of many holiday package deals to Mexico. Travelling to Central or South America can sometimes be a little overwhelming, so it’s a good idea to be prepared before you go; after all, you want to have the party of a lifetime!
