Art, Food, Dance, Music and Architecture define Cultural Activities
Local cultural activities are a complex blend of indigenous and immigrant cultures. It is this distinct footprint that sets Riviera Maya and Yucatan cultural activities apart from other regions of Mexico. The Yucatan Peninsula, through its history, economy, Mayan influences and environmental diversity created a cultural independence recognized by both Mexicans and international visitors as a cultural force. It is this melting pot of cultural influences and a local desire to create a distinct cultural identity that makes this area of Mexico an exciting and interesting place to experience.
