The Blue Parrot: Legendary On The Beach Since 1984.
Its hard to imagine, but 28 years ago Playa del Carmen had a population of 6,000, a single unpaved road, a pay telephone and a one streetlight. There was a footpath off of 5th Avenue through the jungle down to the Blue Parrot. Today, Playa del Carmen is the top Mexican tourist destination and that footpath is known as 12th Street and is the center of Playas nightlife district--boasting no fewer than twenty-five clubs and restaurants. Much more than just a popular tourism destination, the Blue Parrot has played a significant role in influencing the flavor of Playa del Carmen and has a lot to do with the towns unique personality today.
The Legendary Blue Parrot Fire Show is a Playa del Carmen institution that is performed nightly on the beach right next to the dance floor (weather permitting) at 10:30 pm.
The Blue Parrot Fire Show is one of the most authentically entertaining performances that you'll see on your trip to Playa, or anywhere for that matter.
Fire dancers had been a part of Playa life for years, but in 2002 we formally auditioned and cast a group of young performers that were the best of the best and have nurtured and supported them over the years. The result is a tight performance that combines acrobatics with juggling.. fire.. and lots of it!
But don't take our word for it. A quick search of "Blue Parrot and Fire Show" turns up hundreds of videos and testimonials posted by fans from around the world: "incredible," "unbelievable," "sensual," and on and on.
Bottom line: if you make it to Playa del Carmen, don't miss the Legendary Blue Parrot Fire Show.
