Akumal is Mayan for "Land of the Turtles" so we will meet in the center of Akumal Puebla at the famous turtle sculpture. Then we'll tour the newly painted murals by 90 artists from all over the world that have transformed the town overnight with their passion and talent so be sure to bring your camera! As the first Akumal Arts Festival Art-Walk Guide, I met the artists, and I'll to share personal stories about them with amusing anecdotes and well as give insight in to some of the symbolism and meaning behind these amazing works. A new wave of environmentally conscious artists explore themes of nature, protest and social responsibility which connect them to a rich history of Mexican Muralism, from the Aztecs to Diego Rivera, to this new generation of street artists. As we walk around the town, I will point out the church and school while sharing some of the fascinating local history of Akumal. We will stop for drinks at varying local business to help support the local community. So when you are ready for 2 hour break from the beach, come to the other side of the bridge and explore the non tourist side of town. You will love it and have an authentic Mexican experience.
I was honored to be the original Art Walk guide during the Akumal Arts Festival in November 2018. Over 90 artists came together to bring a fiesta of artwork to Akumal Pueblo to beautify the town for the local people, as well as future visitors. Learn about the artists, their inspiration and the meaning behind these brave new murals and the social impact it will have. We wish to continue to train new guides to bring jobs to the local people and support the business here. The tours will help support the festival and its outreach programs. You can be part of helping us to continue annually.
