Riviera Maya Jazz Festival

Hello—Can I be the poster boy for vacations in Riviera Maya, and especially at Jazz Festival time?

I wanted to call home and tell Susan and Ryan, “Hey, this is the place.” Most resort communities around the world promote and cater to “Rich Elegance” and it always comes with a tension and anxiousness of ‘Let’s be better than them’ and ‘Get out your jewels and finest displays.’

Oh my dear Riviera, I wish you every success as a playground for the rich and famous, but don’t sacrifice your natural relaxed, open, and friendly spirit. It’s all there in the people of Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. It’s in the air.

Perfectly in keeping was this festival place for music, right on the beach with sand under your feet. Bring the kids—Music and food and drink, and all sponsored by the local government and department of tourism really who get it! That it’s a good idea to take some tax dollars and spend them in ways that lift the hearts and spirits of the local people, and people from all over the planet. Free music, and dance your ass off!

So we played good music, inspired by the whole situation, especially all these new faces so wide-eyed and expectant. We made a lot of new friends that day.

Thank you, Riviera Maya Jazz Festival, and thank you to the people. You really touched my heart.

Love, Al
