Dead & Company’s “Playing in the Sand”

Is anyone interested in attending Dead & Company’s “Playing in the Sand”, the all-inclusive concert vacation package with three (3) Dead & Company concerts on the beach in Mexico?

I purchased a package for two (2). Due to a change in circumstances, I’m looking to sell my package to a lucky and grateful Deadhead.

The package for “two” entitles two (2) guests to attend all three of the Dead & Company concerts and experience all of the “all-inclusive” benefits of the Fairmont Mayakoba resort. While I purchased the King-size bedroom option, it is quite possible that the resort will be able to accommodate two queen size beds instead.

Here’s the info on the concert series:

Playing in the Sand is an all-inclusive concert vacation in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. You’ll experience three Dead & Company concerts on the beach, under the stars, just steps from the Caribbean Sea.

The three nightly concerts take place at the Barceló Maya Beach resort, which sits on a mile-long stretch of white sandy beach with breathtaking landscapes and pools scattered throughout the property.

Three Dead & Company concerts:

Thursday, February 15 - 7:30 pm
Saturday, February 17 - 7:30 pm
Sunday, February 18 - 7:30 pm

Friday night’s concert is Michael Franti & Spearhead at 9:00 pm.


I purchased the package at the Fairmont Mayakoba resort.

The Fairmont Mayakoba is a masterfully planned luxury resort community set within tropical forest intersected by crystal clear waterways and surrounded by a pristine Caribbean shoreline. Known as the Venice of the Caribbean, at Fairmont Mayakoba you will enjoy a unique resort experience, as the accommodations are located in Casita rooms or suites featuring private entrances, spa-style bathrooms, and furnished balconies or terraces with views to the tropical forest, golf course, mangroves, water canals, lagoons, or the deep blue Caribbean sea.

See below for the specifics on the resort package details:

Here are the details on my specific concert / resort package:

Resort: Fairmont Mayakoba
Room Type: Signature Casita, 1 King Bed
Number of Guests: 2 Adults
Check In Date: 02/15/2018
Check Out Date: 02/19/2018

*** My total cost for the vacation package was $6,899. Price does not include airfare. I’m willing to sell the concert / resort package at a discount for the best offer available. Please, only legitimate, reasonable offers! PM for additional details or to submit an offer. ***

Playing in the sand

I'm bringing my wife and toddler to their first Dead show! Can't wait to live it up in Mexico for a week! Anyone else bringing their kid(s)?
What nights will they be playing? I'm thinking Friday, Sat, Sunday. Or maybe Thursday, Sat, Sunday?
