I wasn't interested in doing anything in Cancun except the Underwater Museum. I was going to skip everything else since I knew it was going to be overpriced tourist traps. But there was one place I had to go, the notorious Coco Bongo.
Out of curiosity and peer pressure, I decided to see what one of the world's greatest party clubs was like. The price was $80. That included free drinks (which tasted very watered down). It was more of a non stop theater show as opposed to a club.
The hostel residents and I took a bus into the Hotel Strip where we queued up for this place like it was a Disneyland ride. Upon entering we followed a massive crowd to a big banquet like room were we all stood on the dance floor in the center. In the balcony above us, the performers put on a show. The hyped up music filled the room as the performers danced, lip synced, performed acrobatic feats, some even suspended themselves from ropes and swung around the room. The dancers flexed their muscles, shook their tits, and gyrated their asses to be beat. The music seemed to change songs every 30 seconds and the performers changed costumes every other minute. The themes went from Moulon Rouge to Spider Man. Strobe lights flashed as confetti dropped down from the ceiling almost every other song.
For me it was too much. It was loud and over stimulating. The other party goers were having a blast. This is the legendary Cancun party scene after all and I arrived to the party 20 years too late. I was kind of disgusted. I am here for the culture and people of this region. I wasn't impressed with the Vegas dance and light show. I left the club early on my own.
