The Playa Times Riviera Maya's English Newspaper - - >editorial - BY BEATRIZ LU­CAS

The dog days of sum­mer have slipped away and last week’s cooler weather has had many snow­birds flock­ing back in time for fes­ti­val sea­son. Oc­to­ber in the Riviera Maya kick starts the cul­tural cal­en­dar of fall, with high­lights in Novem­ber such as the Dance Fes­ti­val, the Jazz Fes­ti­val, the Caribbean Cul­ture Fes­ti­val (Fe­cuca), Fes­ti­val of Life and Death; while, De­cem­ber and Jan­uary is re­served for tech­no­heads dur­ing BPM, and for the more he­do­nis­tic of the crowd, Win­ter Fest in Tu­lum. And for those that live for bread and put­ter, OHL Clas­sic at Mayakoba tees off in Novem­ber, at­tract­ing the great Charley Hoff­man.

There isn’t an of­fi­cial fes­ti­val cal­en­dar, but you can bet your bot­tom dol­lar there is some­thing for ev­ery­body, all the time.

This year, the open­ing act -set­ting the tone for the rest of the sea­son- is the week-long Theatre Fes­ti­val with the per­for­mances are at the theatre in Playa del Car­men. Ex­pect to see a wide va­ri­ety of acts from around the world, three na­tional acts and three from the state of Quin­tana Roo.

These fes­ti­vals are a big at­trac­tion bring­ing a large amount of peo­ple look­ing to have a good time, while soak­ing in the rays, the te­quila, and the cul­ture. For the well-es­tab­lished and sea­soned among you, be a chap and help out those that have lost their way, or are in need of some handy tips.

But, while you are not rock­ing out to beats, you can start lin­ing up tick­ets for the fol­low­ing fes­ti­vals, as there is bound to be some­thing to spark your in­ter­est.
