Cozumel Nightlife & Clubs
Just because Cozumel is not as large as Cancun or Playa Del Carmen, don’t think for a minute that the streets roll up their carpets when darkness settles over the island! While it is true, just as with any city, some nights are quieter than others, without question the Cozumel bar and club scene is alive and happening now more so than ever!

It used to be "back in the day" that there were very few party and dance clubs on the island at all so the choices about where to go were simple. Gringos and tourists typically hung at Carlos n Charlie's for dancing until they closed and then at Joe's for live band music afterward. The locals crowd always went to Neptuno and Scaramuche. But those days are long gone since Cozumel's growth these past few years has caused the nightlife scene to explode into a hip and happening scene where the streets come alive again after midnight with all sorts of music styles and venues!

Both visitors and locals alike now have a multitude of party alternatives to keep them dancing and roaming the streets until the last doors close at 5am. No matter if you prefer a hip hop rock beat or the edgy rhythm of techno/new age music or the classic sound of Latin salsa and rumba, everyone can find a place to hang out these days that suits their mood.

These days at any given venue there will be a mix of both locals and gringos partying and dancing. Most of the clubs still do not charge a cover and MANY offer “ladies night” and special promotional events.
Most of the bars and clubs are in the downtown area located not far from each other. You can easily get from one location to the other by walking, although to get to a few of them you may need to take a taxi. Cozumel is a very safe island. Walking around at night here is common and safe and you will see many people be out and about on foot! Normal safety precautions are all that are necessary.

So take a look at our very own Insider's Nightlife Guide and get ready tap into Cozumel's hot tropical island bar scene where the night doesn't even begin until midnight!

And remember we put it all together for you here on Insider first! ;-)

    “Typical” cantinas are plentiful on the island however these do remain fairly “locals only” neighborhood establishments. Those adventurous travelers who have wandered back into the regular neighborhoods of Cozumel know that there is at least one cantina every block or two in some areas. Cantinas generally won't "turn away" at the door some one wanting a beer…but just keep in mind that patrons are very local and typically not bi-lingual. Also remember that cantinas close the doors at 6pm so they are not options for late late night partying and dancing.
