Third Annual Latin Jazz Festival draws crowds of over 3,000 into the Riviera Maya

This weekend, large crowds from all over the world flocked to the Riviera Maya to attend the Third Annual Latin Jazz Festival. Showcasing the musical talents of local and nationally renowned jazz artists from all over Mexico, the popular festival drew over 3,000 attendees ranging from locals and dignitaries to international tourists from as far away as Sweden. Indeed, this weekend represents a perfect example of the area’s rich culture and vibrant music scene, we couldn’t be happier to report on the festival’s great success.

Funjet Representative Zephne du Plessis was also in attendance, and was thrilled to report back to us on her weekend.

“The atmosphere throughout the festival was just wonderful and, from what I could tell, people were literally mesmerized by the talent and personality of each performer,” Zephne said. “The artists were incredible and really captured the imagination of everyone in attendance. By the end of the show, the crowd was so overwhelmed they just kept shouting ‘otra, otra, otra.(more, more, more)’ It was a very powerful experience!”

Check out these pictures (see below) photographer Richard Kohler took for us at the festival:

OK - You've provided plenty of information about the Riveria Maya. Now what about Cancun?

About the only post you have about Cancun talks about how the beaches may be damaged but look how people are enjoying the pool. We've got pools in Nebraska - I'm NOT going to Cancun for a pool.

What do the beaches and properties look like in Cancun?

Thank you for your interest in Cancun and the Riviera Maya.

The hardworking people of Cancun are in the process of making substantial improvements to their beaches, hotels, and downtown; and the entire Funjet Vacations team is anxiously awaiting the grand reopening of the "New Cancun" on December 15th.

Until that point, we appreciate your patience and interest in these wonderful cities and encourage you to keep checking back for updates.
