Now Sapphire Resort
Puerto Morelos, Mexico
January 26-30, 2012
We couldn't wait to get back to Now Sapphire in 2012! The positive energy flowing through the lobby on Day 1 was truly something special. “In lak ech," in Mayan, means, "You are my other or my brother." It's just another way of saying we are all connected, all in this together. That’s how Mayan Holidaze felt. There was a sense of camaraderie, almost a badge of honor to be there. Game on.
The bands were in fantastic form and their shows were some of the best we've seen. The beach was packed with memorable moments and the pool was slammed with free spirited music lovers. We enjoyed sets from Umphrey’s McGee, the Disco Buscuits, STS9, Wyllys, Jen Hartswick, Ample Mammal, Brendan Bayliss, Big Gigantic, The Polish Ambassador, and Lance Herbstrong during our adventure.
Somewhere in between Umphrey's incredible version of David Bowie's, "Let's Dance!" and STS9’s set performed without synthesizers, we dropped our everyday inhibitions and let our spirits dance through the musical journey of Mayan Holidaze.
