Riviera Maya News has reported that Tulum officials have decided to ban rave parties in the otherwise quiet fishing village. According to the news, Roberto Palazuelos Badeux, president of the Asociación de Hoteles of Tulum, has stated, “There will be no more rave parties because they bring many negative things such as a large generation of vehicular traffic. Also, such events are held all night and into the early morning, ending at 9:00 a.m. or 10 a.m.”

He went on to precise that the aim of this change is to continue creating an atmosphere in Tulum where guests can continue to enjoy their stay without being bothered by city noise such as those created by raves and parties.

The local officials have reached this consensus in liaison with local hotels, with three levels of government involved in ensuring that tourism is promoted and competitiveness is improved.

This will have a particular negative effects for those making their ways to the area during BPM Festival week. While the festival itself concentrates on doing parties in Playa del Carmen, individual labels, artists and parties have been holding their own events in nearby Tulum for several years now. The most talked about of these, Day Zero by Damian Lazarus, drew in incredible praise by industry and music fans alike as one of the best parties of the entire calendar year.
