Imaginaxión Festival: A Magical Cultural Experience in Playa del Carmen

The Imaginaxión Festival, a captivating cultural event, is set to take place from June 21st to 23rd in Playa del Carmen. This festival, organized by Mayakoba City, is a free event that forms part of Mayakoba University's annual activities. The event aims to promote cultural and community development by offering a diverse program suitable for the entire family.

Eric Antolín, Marketing Director of Mayakoba City, emphasized that the festival seeks to connect the community with cultural and recreational events. This encourages interaction and social development.

These include illustration workshops with artists like Tania Recio and family reading workshops led by María Torre.
