Finally, three years later, we are once again able to organize the ever-popular and now famous Full Moon Jazz Festival. This 14 th edition will be held Saturday, February 4 th , 2023 on the beach at Villas Wayak in San Benito.


FMJ is the major fundraiser for the university students in Telchac Education and has supported and helped 13 students graduate from college, something that would not have happened without it. You will see the students, both graduates and others, working at the event.

What happens at Full Moon Jazz? Well, first off, boatloads of fun. When you mix music from three fantastic bands, dancing over the pool and under the moon, a food court with four restaurants, a bar, a fun 50/50 raffle, and about 650 happy, joyful, partying people, you have the ingredients for a good time that supports a good cause.


Once again, Ranier Pucheux and The Merida Big Band is the anchor band. This is the band that definitely gets everyone up and dancing! Jazz Sensitive de Mauricio Bonfiglio will also be returning with their fabulous sounds. The third group, which is always from somewhere outside of Mérida, will be, as per usual, a very pleasant surprise. We’ve had groups from New York, Cuba, San Francisco, New Orleans, Canada, and Guadalajara.


All food and drink purchases are made with “tickets” that you buy at the “bank” upon arrival. Tip: Buy a sheet from the start so you don’t have to line up for tickets every time.
