Once inside the club, we discovered that the place was DEAD. It was just before midnight and there were maybe 10 people there. But the bartenders were very friendly (they kissed us all on the hand) and hooked us up with some drinks, and we sat down near the dance floor. The dance floor was fairly large and sunken into the floor, but there was only a lone guy dancing all by himself on it. The music was hard core techno. There was plenty of seating at different levels all around the dance floor (more than in any other club I saw in Cancun), and another bar along the back wall of the club, in addition to the large square bar just inside the front door. After a while, we ended up talking to a couple of guys there (who had paid $25 to get in) and they told us we needed to go to Señor Frog's.
After talking to a bunch of different people in Cancun, they say that Wednesday night is La Boom's biggest night. They play all different kinds of music and it gets packed with people (and cover is $28 for everyone for all you can drink).

Aside from that, the place was pumping. We really had a good time, and they played great dance music. The club was large enough that I didn't feel like it was overcrowded. The waitstaff was very nice to us there.

There are two different moods there. There's hip hop in one side and rave in the other, so you can choose where to stay, or go back and forth. The place is a little far from the rest of the clubs and all the action, but you can easily ride the bus over and it's not such a long trip.
If you are looking for fun in your trip, this a place you cannot miss. Be sure to give a nice tip to a waiter, and then keep asking him for the drinks all night, he will take care of you. But if you don't tip, it's going to be a while before you get served. Don't waste your money on the tip jars either, give it to the guy. So get on the bus, stand in line for a little while, and get ready to party until around 5am.

At the entrance to the club was a group of about 50 young teenagers who were on their senior trips. They set a negative tone for the evening from the beginning, as they were obnoxious and demanding. Their chaperones were not far behind them in their rudeness. However, the four ladies and I decided to venture forth and try to see what could be made of our evening.
We danced and socialized and had a pleasant evening among ourselves. The music was loud, of course, but seemed to be a more brash sounding style than there was at the other clubs. Of course, there were many more people in La Boom.
The age group tended to be between 18 - 25. The clients were mostly 'whiny' and pampered, selfish, and did not have proper social skills. I found that the best way to find enjoyment here was to be in a group and to stay together.
Because of my preferences at my age (49), I doubt that I will return to La Boom. But the experience would probably be different for someone in their 20's or 30's.
