Capture the Coco Bongo Spirit

Capture the Coco Bongo Spirit

July 01, 2014

"Like Las Vegas, only better"...that about sums up the Coco Bongo experience. Even a New York Times review notes "you have to experience it to believe it." So what's all the fuss? That's easy – it's a combination of flying acrobats, congo lines that stretch across the top of the bars, live bands and DJs all mixed in with balloons, beach balls, confetti and miles of colorful streamers. In short, it's an epic nightclubbing adrenaline rush that outdoes the energy of even Vegas. Coco Bongo's capacity is an incredible 1,800 party-goers (including lots of guests of Playa del Carmen resorts) so it can get packed. Our recommendation? Book Mayaland Tours exclusive tour, which opens the "express pass" door to a reserved VIP table with unlimited premium drinks. When you see the line to get in, you'll know why this is the best idea you've heard all day.
