Your favorite four-night fiesta, Closer to the Sun, announces its anticipated return to Puerto Morelos, Mexico! Hosted by Slightly Stoopid, the guys have invited some of the hottest reggae bands to accompany them on the Closer to the Sun beach stage.
The 3rd annual Mexico Vacation Destination will be taking place December 14th – 18th, 2016 at the Now Sapphire Resort in Puerto Morelos, Mexico. This gives you plenty of time to grab your passport, and make arrangements for this around the always busy holidays. Joining the party is Stick Figure, Tribal Seeds, Matisyahu and back for a second time, the Dirty Heads!
Speaking from experience, Closer to the Sun is one of the most memorable four days of anyone’s life. Not only is the line up stacked with reggae chart topping artists, the experience as whole is priceless. While you may arrive to the festival with 1 or 2 friends, you will leave paradise with a whole new family. Your new crew will be made up of people from all over the world and maybe even your favorite artists.
Besides having the best time of your life, what else is included? The festival is held at the Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun; an all-inclusive resort that is transformed to house only guests and musicians of Closer to the Sun. All-inclusive means that all of your drinks, food, and music are included in your total price when you book your trip — Flights are not included.
When the music isn’t playing, what is there to do? Main performances kick off at sunset, but don’t worry, the stage is not the only place you will see the bands. During the day, members of all the bands enjoy hanging with their fans! Closer to Sun organizes volleyball, basketball and off site excursions where guests can interact with artists.
