San Pedro’s Saca Chispas field to be closed in August; no Costa Maya festival this year

The primary public space often used for large events in the heart of San Pedro Town, affectionately known as Saca Chispas, will be closed during August for renovations. The announcement by the San Pedro Town Council raised eyebrows as this is the venue where the popular international Costa Maya Festival takes place on the island every August. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival has been canceled for the last two years, making this the third year without the event on the island.
