Mateo's First Friday TulumFun activities to with kids in Tulum are not the easiest thing to find. Well, I have to say that my kids are looking forward to returning to Mateo’s on the first Friday of June! Keeping the kids happy and entertained allows for the grown ups to enjoy the MANY amazing shows, demonstrations or activities around during First Friday.Mateo's First Friday Tulum

Mateo’s in Tulum has always been knows for having something for everyone. With several different levels and areas to enjoy your afternoon with different entertainment in each. Match that to the crazy imagination of the owner, Matt and you get some pretty spectacular events!

This past Friday marked the opening of the latest from this mastermind of fun… First Friday Live Art Expo. Yes, I know- last Friday was not the First Friday of May! The event had been postponed from the previous Friday due to weather concerns.

There were several stations set up all around and the whole place was a buzz with energy. From a spray paint artist doing a stunning mural on the back wall to several artists painting large canvases, a talented body painter, beautiful jewelry makers, a chess table, kite flying on the upper deck, a table stocked with art supplies and Mexican images for you to create your own piece of art and add to that the amazing sounds of Son de la Barrio playing their incredible reggae cuban music!338
