Nightlife in Riviera Maya centers around discos such as Playacrawl in Playa del Carmen. Venues like this serve as a landing pad for superstar international DJs, with its 1,000,000-watt sound system and 650 square feet of video screens. And at Dady'O, which bills itself as one of the three best nightclubs in America, you might as well be in Las Vegas or Los Angeles, there are so many Jersey Shore- and playmate-themed parties. Coco Bongo in Playa del Carmen is an offshoot of the original Cancun spot that feels part cabaret, part Cirque du Soleil and part variety show. Lady Gaga, Madonna and Michael Jackson impersonators take the stage while doing stunts and acrobatics. If the gyrating bodies and crowded venues are not your style, venture to Tulum for something mellower, where you can salsa at La Zebra, or unwind with a cocktail at Bar Iguana or Mezzanine hotel’s bar.
