The nightlife in Punta Cana is quite lively and there is a wide range of options to spend the night, in Punta Cana, there are several nightclubs of very good reputation, but most of the drinks are located distributed in the Avenida España.
“The drinks”, are nightclubs very frequented by the locals in the area, although many tourists also go, in the drinks, you get good rum, good cold beer, a very good atmosphere, and zero problems.
Drinks are a very good option, but for those who like the local atmosphere, some may get scared there because they are surrounded by Dominicans. After all, foreigners are a minority, but in reality, the atmosphere among the locals is respectful and fun.
Here I show you some of the most popular places for nightlife in Punta Cana, including nightclubs and drinks.
Punta Cana or Bavaro? which area has the best nightlife
Everything will depend on what you are looking for, even where you are staying. In all the hotels they will offer you tickets for the discs, in some cases with transportation, but at high prices. Some people prefer to go on their own.
Some hotels have good nightclubs for their clients, such as the Barceló Bávaro complex (Beach and Deluxe), and with open bar.
The famous clubs Imagine, Pachá and Mangú (especially the last two), have lost a lot of publicity since the opening of the Coco Bongo (totally recommended), with its great variety of fantastic shows, but it is considerably expensive. All nightclubs are far from each other.
On the other hand, on Avenida de España, you have drinks (local discos), the most recommended Airplane and Point Drink, set every day until 6 in the morning, with good prices. At the end of that same avenue, there is the Mangú.
Coco Bongo Punta Cana
Coco Bongo, is located in the Downtown Mall of Bavaro, Punta Cana, attendees who wish to live a night full of color and fun can find in the Coco Bongo Punta Cana (the youngest in the family, but not the least successful) a series of live shows that leave everyone who sees them speechless for the first time. There is no doubt that this is an unforgettable experience that combines in a party-show several of the most iconic films of Hollywood cinema, with remembered theater and musical pieces of Broadway.
The disco, only available for adults, currently works with two types of admission. One is buying the entrance ticket, which can be online or in place, and the other way is acquiring a special ticket, which the organizers call “Gold Member”. Although the latter brings benefits such as VIP areas, both tickets allow access to shows with the possibility of an open bar.
The price paid per ticket is approximately US $ 120, but it is worth it to watch a high level show. If you are not used to being so long standing it is better that you buy the VIP ticket that is worth twice as much as the common entrance.
How long does Coco Bongo show last?
At the Coco Bongo disco at 3:30, the shows end and the Open Bar closes, the room is open as a normal disco, where you already pay for the drinks, if you want you can stay until 6:00 only you have to look for transport on your own, there are always many taxis at the door, so you would have no problem.
Drink Point is a bar with a good local mood, located on Avenida España, Bávaro, if you are looking for an alternative to your resort’s disco and want to experience the local scene, this is the place for you. Drink Point is like a combination of a liquor store and a street party. To get a drink, you go inside and choose a bottle of liquor (or whatever you want) and soda. You have to pay and then a server brings to your table ice and polystyrene cups. Everyone is outside at the tables surrounding the building, there are even people on the sidewalk.
The staff is friendly and works hard. This place fills the weekends (with the locals and guests of other resorts) and the place has a large security staff so the area is very safe, despite being a place frequented by many natives, you could feel a bit out of ambiance compared to the hotel, the truth is that you will feel completely safe and protected.
The price of drinks at Drink Point are quite fair, it is recommended to go past 11 p.m. because at that time is where he begins to have more life, the music is very good and danceable, although here the locals like to listen to loud music, many local people (men/women) could also approach to talk to you, they are respectful, but you must know how to deal with them, this is a topic that I will deal with independently.
