Are you planning a trip to Mexico soon and looking for a great place to enjoy some music? There is simply no better musical experience in Mexico than the May Cultural Festival. A mixture of art, crafts, theater and music, the festival is a not-to-be-missed event.

The May Cultural Festival in Mexico is known locally as the Festival Cultural de Mayo. It is held every year and takes place over a period of roughly one month – usually from the beginning of May to the first of July. It is probably one of the largest and most popular cultural events in the country and people come from all corners of the country as well as from distant parts of the globe to participate in and enjoy this spectacular event. Of course, a large portion of the event in Mexico focuses on various art forms such as paintings, sculptures and acting, but one may say that an even larger part of the festival focuses on music. Every genre of music – from rock to traditional Mexican music – can be heard at the May Cultural Festival. Those with a younger musical palate will certainly find music that caters to their tastes while those who prefer less mainstream music will also be able to enjoy themselves. Most of the concerts are open air and take place at the Los Arcos amphitheater in the Malecón.

The festival takes place in the town of Puerto Vallarta which is in the state of Jalisco in Mexico. It is really very easy to find out exactly what sort of musicians, actors and artists will be present at the May Cultural Festival and you will find that these different elements of the festival compliment each other to provide a truly enjoyable experience. So why not start planning a short stay in Puerto Vallarta for the month of May so that you too can enjoy this massive festival? As with most major festivals, accommodation is booked up fast so it is highly recommended that you make your bookings as early as possible. Some might book as much as a year in advance to make sure that they don’t miss out on this awesome cultural festival in Mexico.
