Oh wow now where on earth do I start with this place?? Our first visit was back in 2006 and I honestly think this is THE best club in the world and I do believe it is on some lists saying so.BACKGROUND
Back in 2006 it was the one place I HAD to go whilst on holiday. We were actually staying in Playa Del Carmen, not Cancun but it's near enough to go for a night out. First we booked on a bar hopping tour for my 21st birthday - the final place of the night being Coco Bongos. However, too much sun and not enough water had left me pretty ill that night and we had to go home before we got to go to Coco Bongos.We then booked to go to Coco Bongos through a place in Playa Del Carmen, we paid an £8 deposit, got all dressed up and waited patiently in the hotel lobby to be picked up but the tour never came. We went into Playa Del Carmen and the place we had purchased the tour from had shut down.
They organised for a taxi to pick up just me and my boyfriend (no other pick ups), take us to Coco Bongos, get us in priority entrance (no queuing), all inclusive drinks all night, and the taxi to pick us up again at whatever time we asked him. All this for £30 each!! And bear in mind that its an hour each way taxi ride and ALL your drinks in with that! Excellent value and the taxi driver turned up bang on time.After going in 2006 it was without a doubt the one place we wanted to revisit in Cancun in 2007. This time we were meeting friends (who were staying in Cancun) so we could not book on a trip there as we would never have found them inside Coco Bongos so we took the bus to Cancun, then a taxi from the bus station to near Coco Bongos, paid to get in all inclusive and then got a taxi home. This worked out a lot more expensive and not as easy but was still a great night.
ENTERING THE CLUBSo upon being ushered in the first time you go up a few escalators and emerge into a tiny bar area. After pushing your way through this bit you enter the main club. What struck me is how small it was. I was expecting it to be huge but it is not even any bigger than some clubs in Manchester.
It is sort of an arena shape, with a bar at one end (imagine the stage end in an arena), stepped seating area around the sides, and a large dancefloor making up the central floor area.We were ushered along right to the end where we would not have had any view of the stage. Some lairy blokes above us knocked a beer down onto me. The place was crammed to the maximum and I wasn't sure I was going to like it at all. My boyfriend went to get us some drinks while I saved our 'seat' (step) but they wouldn't give him two drinks at once despite him pointing out me and me waving.
