The Riviera Maya Jazz Festival is an annual music venue that first started in 2003. Since everyone loves music and it is considered to be the universal language, people from all around the world gather to enjoy this amazing musical occasion. This annual event has hosted such jazz greats as George Benson, Tower of Power, Sergio Mendez, Spiro Gyro, Earth Wind & Fire, Herbie Hancock, and Celso Pena to mention only a few artists.
Playa del Carmen is the heart of the Riviera Maya, hence, it has again been handed the honor to host the Riviera Maya Jazz Festival 2019. Playa is full of diversity, which started when its reputation for being an international vacation destination grew to what it is today. Also, many foreigners have found second homes since Playa del Carmen real estate has so much to offer. This, in turn, has brought together a variety of musical arts to the region. On any given day, you will not only find local musicians performing, but other imported virtuosos playing their style of music as well.
As a result, this annual event has grown throughout the years. People schedule their vacation around this captivating festival of worldly talent. The three-day concert begins November 29th and runs through December 1st, 2019. This festive event is located on Mamita’s Beach just north of the club – follow Calle 28 Norte to the beach and listen for the music. The event is very well organized with a state-of-the-art stage, technical sound system, and lights!
The Riviera Maya Jazz Festival 2019 is free for general admission. However, there is a VIP area of sorts and has a nominal admission fee of $18 pesos or an approximately one-US dollar per person. This closed-off area is usually less crowded and provides an up-close view of the entertainers.
An event like this attracts thousands of people. Past festival officials have estimated somewhere between 10,000 to 15,000 people in attendance each day. Therefore, your best chance to get a spot as close to the stage as possible is to arrive early. Make sure there are at least three or more people in your party. Nonetheless, if you leave your spot for any reason, you will lose it.
If you manage to get upfront in any of the areas, bring your folding chairs, blankets, and small umbrellas for shade. This particular section is the only place where you can sit or lie down. Everyone in the sections behind you will be standing for most of the concert. The organizers do allow the attendees to bring snacks and beverages.
