I'm planning a trip with my wife in May of 2011. I went to Cancun this year the same time in May and had a BLAST as per the nightlcub scene is concerned. Packed clubs every day. We both are in our early twenties and are really confused whether we should go to Cabo or Acapulco next year. We don't wana go to Cancun as we already have been there.

Please we need your help. We wana party everyday and mostly looking for a Nightclub/Party atmosphere scene.

Cabo has more places to party then Acapulco. Also it has less safety issues comparetively for now then Acapulco.

I would second that as well. Stay somewhere near Cabo San Lucas so that you can take advantage of the night life there. Maybe Riu Santa Fe? Los Cabos is long and some of the resorts are down towards San Jose Del Cabo which does not have the night life that San Lucas has.

I recently traveled to Cancun (June) with a couple of people who know Cancun and Cabo San Lucas quite well. In their opinion, while the nightlife is not really as lively as Cancun, Cabo San Lucas is definitely a must go if you enjoy Cancun. They said that the restaurants are quite good, as is the shopping, however the beaches are without a doubt, much better in Cancun. All that being said, there are safety issues in Acapulco that have been brought to light in the past year, so for that reason alone, you may wish to focus on Los Cabos, or Cancun again!

Between the two, I'd go with Cabo. BUT if you're planning any swims in the ocean, unlike Cancun that time of year, the water will be quite chilly

for nightlife definitely cabo. if you do choose cabo and like to swim off the beach make sure your resort is on medano beach. that's the only real swimmable beach in cabo!
