The nightlife in Mexico City offers many different options. From dancing the Salsa with an old lady, to boat parties, to the famous American house parties. Mexico City has it all. No matter which party you go to, pre-drinks are very popular in Mexico. In order to avoid traffic, the ‘fiesta’s’ could already start at 5 pm on Thursday or Friday. Yes, Thursday also! It’s very common to party already on Thursday as it is also known as the ‘little Friday’. One very important tip we can give you, is dance! If you’re not really a dancer, then you should definitely become one, as it’s part of the Mexican culture and it will make your evenings out a lot better.
