These Local Events in Cancun Make Their Mark

This world-known destination offers unequaled experiences for travelers. The city has it all, relaxing beaches, perfect weather for reef snorkeling, a vibrant nightlife, exquisite Cancun tours, and a packed schedule of annual events that are fun for the whole family.

Every night at Cancun’s Convention Center, you can enjoy the Ballet Folklorico de Cancun – the city’s famous dance troupe. They offer a popular revue that showcases regional dance and music from across the country. The artists don traditional dress and perform authentic dances accompanied by live musicians. The Ballet Folklorico de Cancun consistently delivers colorfully, entertaining shows.

In May, Jazz arrives to Cancun. At the Cancun Jazz Festival you can enjoy the genre greats at venues all around the Hotel Zone. The event spans several days, every year, and is a must for music lovers.

Elsewhere on the Cancun events calendar, Mexican gastronomy and the Americas’ star-chefs are celebrated in mid-March every year. The food and wine festival includes celebrity chef and winemaker dinners, luxury catamaran cruises and private beach club dinners, alongside wine and spirit tastings featuring offerings from Spain, the U.S, Mexico, Argentina, and Chile.

For a more laid-back vibe, however, the anthropology museum can be found on the ground floor of the Convention Centre. Here, 1,500 year old artefacts that back to the Mayans’ rule in ancient times can be found. There are guided tours available in English, as well as in French, German and other languages.
