December is finally here! I am so excited because I just realized that I am so blessed to earn money just for being a partyholic and to write about my crazy nights in Mandala Cancun and Playa del Carmen and I am also happy, because starting next year I will be reporting my adventures from Puerto Vallarta as well!


But as this year is flying away, I feel a little nostalgic about the time I’ve spend in Cancun. For many of you –our readers-, Cancun is your destination for Xmas vacation, but for the locals, December is a very busy season and that means there is no vacation for us. However, working Xmas night and NYE is not that bad if you are a partyholic, actually it is a PLEASURE! So, today I am going to remember and tell you all about my last NYE celebrations in Cancun. Are you ready to travel to the past?




Let’s begin with 2013!

That was the year when we survived the Mayan prophecy of the end of the World, do you remember that? Well, as we overcame that year, Mandala Cancun decided to celebrate the New Year 2013 with an “Endless Party”! I can remember that at 7 am the nightclub was still crowded  and nobody wanted to leave. That New Year´s party was amazing and literally endless!


2014 the year of Black & Gold

To receive the year 2014 at Mandala there was only one condition: you had to wear a black or gold outfit! Almost all male party lovers came to this party wearing black; the ladies choices were a little more risky and you could see everything from LBD (little black dresses) to golden sequin gala dresses. My memory of that year is that I had to leave the party early due to a big failure with my black dress. (I may or may not be the girl who showed her boobs that night, you’ll never know!)


20´s ball to celebrate the 2015

The beginning of the year 2015 at Mandala Cancun was celebrated Gatsby style. The champagne ran for all the tables and everybody toasted for the New Year. There was no clothes´ color restriction for this party, but everybody looked stunning (the staff wore glamorous tuxedos/dresses). It was a high level party!


 The golden 2017

Last year Mandala choose their insignia color and organize a fantastic New Year’s Party in Cancun. The name of the party “Stay Gold” was perfect for a night full of good music, party favors, champagne and beautiful people from around the world. This was the first year I left Mandala before sunrise, my reason: being the Mandala Beach Club After Party. It was fabulous to see the first light of the year from the pool at Mandala Beach, and surely this is the place where I’ll be awaiting the arrival of the first day of 2017.

Waiting for NYE 2018!

All I know about this Mandala’s NYE  is that  the name of the party includes the words “Champagne Showers”! I don’t need more information about Mandala Cancun NYE Party 2018 as I already know that I´ll be there  toasting with THE partyholics. Then at 2 or 3 AM I´ll move from Mandala to the Mandala Beach After Party to take an amazing picture of the first sunrise of the year. So keep checking my snapchat account “The Partyholic”.



Share your plans for NYE with us. And if you are going to be in Cancun, come say hello to this partyholic at Mandala!
