The inaugural Mazatlán Jazz Festival promises to reinvent how we combine a tropical vacation, at a luxury beach resort, while listening to the best in jazz.  Groove to the sounds of Euge Groove, Peter White, Jackiem Joyner, Marion Meadows, DW3, Don “The 1” Bell & More.

Imagine traveling on a private charter jet with old and new friends and landing on one of the most spectacular beaches on the Mexican Rivera.  Each suite is designed to provide you with upscale accommodations to complement a well-deserved lifestyle.  The jazz artists handpicked to entertain you for three nights is only topped by the all-inclusive fine dining, branded drinks, and nightly afterparties to keep you in a festive mood. Unwind, enjoy the sun and let your hair down. Extend your stay with a 4 or 5 night package.

What more can you expect on this memorable destination jazz festival?  While the guys and some ladies play golf on an exquisite course then relax with cognac and cigars, we have planned an exciting ladies’ day out! Among the many special activities offered at the resort, feel free to join us for a shopping extravaganza, fashion show, pampering sessions, cooking and Zumba classes, and an engaging conversation and solutions about female rejuvenation at the Forever Fabulous Health Forum with Dr. Gail Jackson.

The fun, food, and funky good time won’t stop!  If seafood is one of your weaknesses, then bring your appetite to the indulgent lobster dinner takeover at the renowned Mr. Lionso Restaurant, reserved just for our group.

Don’t miss the ultimate smooth jazz life in the “Pearl of the Pacific” at the first-class Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay Resort & Spa! If you lost your groove in 2019, when you leave Mazatlán, it will be back! This event promises the time of your life!
