Would I do another junket? A better question might be would I be invited, since this overly verbose rant is obviously not the unreserved accolade hosts are used to seeing in publications like Travel And Leisure. I'd probably let a similar experience go to someone better able to appreciate the larger vacation theme. But if the Rivera Maya festival really does expand to a week and takes advantage of the breathing room to diversify (tributes to the country's historic jazz figures would be a personal lure) I might even cash in my own frequent flier miles to go.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
