This weekend guests of Now Jade and Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun can ‘live in the now’ at 7th annual Puerto Morelos Music Festival or as the locals know it, “Festival de Musica”! Tonight kicks off the last three nights of the exciting music festival that features local artists. The last week of the 2012 festival will be held on February 2nd, 3rd and 4th from 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm.
Guests will be able to enjoy a variety of music including reggae, rock, blues, Latin, jazz performed by local and visiting musicians. There will also be visual arts and dance, including traditional Mexican folklore ballet.
Puerto Morelos is a very peaceful and quiet fisherman’s villa with beautiful scenery and friendly locals. Like each year this little town is hosting the traditional Puerto Morelos Music Festival. This is a free event in the town square and all ages are welcome. It is a great occasion where families, couples, friends and even pets will enjoy!
Taste local flavors such as “marquesitas”, popular snack in the Yucatan Peninsula that is similar to a waffle crepe filled with Edam cheese and sweets, Yummy! Guests can also get the chance to shop for local arts and crafts and other souvenirs to take home!
