Buy tickets the previous summer
Check the BPM website, starting in August and September, for tickets, updated line-ups of artists and venues to plan travel and party-hopping.
Consider a pass
The festival site sells three-, seven- and 10-day passes (with wristbands for entrance at official venues). VIP passes get participants to the front of the entrance lines. Deals for vacation packages include airfare, hotel and festival passes. Tickets to individual shows are also available on the site and during the festival at venues.
Mix the old with the new
BPM revelers can take a break from dance music and explore Tulum and other Mayan ruins and archeological sites, such as massive temples of Chichen Itza, which is a day trip. Or stay local and plunge into the Caribbean waters on diving and snorkeling excursions, experience hair-raising zip lines and jungle trips off the beaten tourist path.
Take note of cenotes
Take a swim in nearby Chaak Tun park or at other such cenotes, underground caves with crystal-clear freshwater rivers and ponds that the Mayans considered entrances to the underworld.
