Summer is a great time of year. It brings a wave of events, not only to Cancun, but the whole Riviera Maya. At The Playa Times, we know the obvious options are beach-related, but what about other events? Don’t look any further; we have a bunch of things to do and see while you remain dry (kind of).
August 12: Astral Flyers in Cancun: They are an international freestyle motocross acrobatic group that will be presenting their amazing tricks in the Autódromo Cancun (south city limits, right before La Roca mall) as part of their AF meets Riviera Maya tour. If you enjoy the adrenaline rushes caused by seeing other people risk their lives, then this is for you! Tickets are between $200 MX and $1200 MX and you can get them at Italian Coffee, Hard Rock and miboletera.com
August 13: Mercadito Vegano Cancún: Our friends from Savia (at Las Torres Avenue) will be hosting this event from the Mercadito Vegano. Mercadito started in Playa and now it’s bringing the best animal-free catalog to Cancun. There is always great music and the friendliest vibe. It’s the perfect spot to spend a Sunday morning! They are always in constant search for new producers. If you have a vegan product that you want to sell, make sure to contact them. They are probably the biggest showcase for the vegan movement on the Riviera Maya.
August 17: 1st International Catchball Tournament: Catchball players from around the world will gather in Cancun to participate in the First International Catchball Encounter, and First International Catchball Tournament. This international competition is organized by the global Catchball Association (@CatchballAssociation) and Catchball Cancun. Catchball Cancun has its own league and is always looking for new players to join.
August 31: Warren Hill’s Cancun Jazz Festival: Taking place at the Hard Rock Hotel, this festival will bring some of the best exponents of the contemporary jazz scene. It will have classic performers including George Benson, Kenny G and Warren Hill himself. For prices and packages, visit cancunjazz.com
