“Public and free park for the conservation of the native flora and fauna of the region, as well as meeting place, recreation, creation and artistic and cultural awareness for the community. It was created and operated by the civil organization Flora, Fauna and Culture of Mexico, AC, in order to provide our community with a green space for healthy recreation and coexistence, thereby contributing to the social health of our city, Playa del Carmen.”
“Playa del Carmen’s main dining, shopping and entertainment district is located on the vibrant, pedestrian-only 5th Avenue. At the South end of this charming, cobblestone street is a central square in which visitors can view various free performances throughout the day. The ‘Voladores de Papantla,’ (Mayan Flying Men) climb an 80-foot pole and play traditional Mayan music with flutes and a drum. Four of the five men, spiral slowly downward, suspended upside down by their feet with a rope, which is attached to a rotating platform at the top of the pole. The 5th remains at the top to play the music while the others descend down, flying in a circular motion.”
“Famous Mexican artist who painted many portraits, self-portraits and works inspired by the nature and artifacts of Mexico. Inspired by the country's popular culture, she employed a naïve folk art style to explore questions of identity, postcolonialism, gender, class and race in Mexican society.”
“ALUX Restaurant, Bar and Lounge emerges within the depths of a natural formed cavern. The restaurant’s interiors have metamorphosed for millions of years to create the visual spectacle of countless stalactites and flowstones. Awe your senses as we delight your palate with our Fine Mexican and International Cuisine. The enigmatic energy of the ancient Mayans is felt everywhere in this Cenote Cavern. At ALUX, nature itself is the Star attraction. This place is SO cool! The restaurant is literally in a cave (aka: “cenote”) right outside of the downtown area. This place is off the hook! You walk down the stone steps into another world! The restaurant is beautiful with chandeliers and candles everywhere. There are stalactites on the ceiling and water falls with cool jazz music playing. We saw a few bats flying around as we explored deeper into the caves. BEST service we’ve ever had - very attentive and informative. The appetizers were delicious and really all the food was so unique as well as affordable. This is the most unique restaurant experience you will ever find and incredible ambiance!! Alux is a TOTAL must if you are on your honeymoon, Christmas, New Year’s or celebrating a special occasion! A ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE!!! HINT: You must make reservations with enough time (months) in advance - especially if it's a holiday season. ”
