Experience

Phish: Riviera Maya

We are pleased to present Revenge of the Return of Phish: Riviera Maya, a 4- or 5-night all-inclusive concert vacation featuring 3 nights of Phish in one of the most beautiful parts of the world (according to Beautiful Parts of the World Magazine). Join the band on the beach at a seaside stage, providing an incredible backdrop for these intimate shows.

The concerts will take place at the Barceló Maya Beach, an all-inclusive resort sitting on a mile-long stretch of white sand, featuring breathtaking landscapes and pools scattered throughout the property. You may reserve a room at the Barceló, or choose to stay at one of our other hand-selected hotels. Each resort offers a variety of restaurants, multiple bars and daily activities, all included in your package price. Spend your days lounging by the pool and beach, or explore the nearby town of Tulum, or sit in your room watching TV, we don’t care. Partake in exciting off-site adventures or sleep off the night before and soak up some sun.

Each night, as if hypnotized by a piper of pipes, guests staying at the Barceló Maya will walk out of their rooms and take a short stroll to the beach to see Phish. If you choose to stay at one of our other properties, a private shuttle will deliver you within feet of the concert venue.

Riviera Maya

The Riviera Maya is a famous section of coastline along Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, stretching from Puerto Morales in the North, to Tulum in the South. Surrounded by the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, the Riviera Maya is a place rich in history and culture, built upon breathtaking and diverse landscapes. From jungle to coast, countless marvels await, such as magnificent barrier reefs, ancient Mayan ruins, and your tour guide Benito. There is no shortage of sites to see or adventures to embark on throughout this spectacular region of Mexico.

Built in the 13th century, the coastal city of Tulum was once a thriving trading center of the Mayan civilization. It was one of the last cities that remained inhabited by the Mayans (surviving 70 years after the Spanish occupation), and therefore is one of the most well-preserved archaeological sites in the Yucatan (according to Well-Preserved Archaeological Sites Magazine). Nowadays, Tulum is famous for its sugar white sandy beaches, aqua clear waters, and a great restaurant and bar scene with authentic local cuisine. Every year, visitors flock to Tulum to explore the ruins and wander along the gorgeous beaches. Tulum is a can’t-miss destination during your Phish: Riviera Maya trip.

The Venue

Each night, concertgoers are greeted by a line of waiters and waitresses with as many complimentary drinks as you can carry. From there, patrons are wowed by various performance artists (including Mayan Warriors, Fire Dancers, Mariachi, etc.) and led straight to our main stage, which sits on a beautiful stretch of beach just feet from the Caribbean Sea. Once inside the venue, guests can enjoy regional and traditional fare including tacos and nightly rotating vegetarian options, mixed with some of your favorite snacks and desserts. (Did someone say churros?! No? We could have sworn someone said “churros.” Or maybe it was “Charles.”) Our roaming wait staff will keep the beverages flowing all night long so you don’t even need to move to refuel! One-of-a-kind custom event merchandise will be available for purchase so you can take a piece of the beach home with you.

We’ve hand selected six of the Riviera Maya’s finest resorts for Phish: Riviera Maya 2019. Each property is located along the Caribbean Sea and offers a variety of scenic rooms, inviting pools, crystal clear blue water, that mini-shuffleboard thingy, on-site restaurants and bars, as well as plenty of activities (both on land and in the water).
