I remember when we hit the first Arena Festival edition of back in 2012. It was something we all have been wanted for years, being a common visitor to Playa del carmen, Tulum, I knew all the amazing places Riviera Maya has the offer, and even when it always had been gay friendly, the gay scene was somewhat spread to different spots and towns, and with no event to gather us. The Festival brought the opportunity to enjoy Riviera in a gayest way, been able to meet more friends, to party day or night (or day and night), and over all, having more fun.

7 years had happened since the first festival, and it had changed…. a lot. Nowadays, Arena Festival is a well know brand worldwide, people from all over the world arrive this this warm location. The Festival is set on February, the best season to visit Riviera Maya, just after Winter high season, so finding accommodation is not a problem or costly.

Location

The secret of the success of Arena is not only consistency, but also the partnership with the best of the best in Riviera Maya and Circuit World. The locations are everything.  Imagine a party next to top Caribbean beaches, in the middle of the jungle, In a Cenote (sinkhole), in an underground cave, or the best clubs at playa del Carmen. Through the years Arena has gave us amazing and different venues.

The music, the best of the Circuit Music. You will find the same Djs, and parties as in Madrid, Barcelona, Mykonos or Rio. These people know how to party, as you expect.

The Crowd

 It’s completely international. I was amazed last year when I had problems finding any Mexican friends. Is easy to meet people from US, Canada, México, Colombia, Panama, Spain… expect a lot of the Latin look. The age varies from 25 to 45 years old mostly. And yes, this kind of festival attracts a lot of gym lovers, well actually attracts everyone, but for some reason I just put the eye and be aware of the hunky ones.

How to arrive and get around

To Cancun Airport, which is just one of the best connected airport in Mexico. Riviera Maya has an amazing infrastructure to handle a lot of tourism. Keep in mind that annually Riviera Maya receives more tourism than all Brazil.

Whether you are a looking to party day and night, or you just want to enjoy and relax in Riviera Maya while the town is full of hot guys, this is for you. The winner combo for winter is ahead: warm weather + crystal water beaches + Party + Hot boys + Tons of things to do in Riviera. (Click here to get some ideas)

Where to buy tickets and bracelets

Follow the next link to buy your bracelet with the best price. Keep in mind that the bracelets are sold in blocks, so the price get higher as the festival approaches. Individual tickets for each party are relased  few days before the festival starts, but we recommend buying the bracelets if you are planning to attend to more than 2 parties, besides you get access to day and night parties.
