The day Frida Kahlo went to the Mayan Riviera

The art that exists in the Mayan Riviera beats in its roots. It would be impossible to sit and watch a sunset on its beautiful beaches without feeling moved.

That emotion is how art is born.

The Mayan Riviera is also home to great pieces of art and is a place countless contemporary artists have decided to express through their work. But the Mayan Riviera has stayed true to its origins despite the surrounding cosmopolitan environment, so it’s not surprising to find Frida Kahlo’s presence in this Mexican Caribbean paradise.


Yes. Frida Kahlo in Playa del Carmen.

And when we think of Mexican art that has transcended borders, we immediately associate it with the eccentric, surrealist painter. With her characteristic style, confident stroke, enigmatic beauty and paintings with stories that represent an explosion of imagination inked with pain, Frida has arrived in the Mayan Riviera…

As a museum!


The Frida Kahlo Riviera Maya museum opened in late August 2017 during the 110th anniversary of the artist’s birth. It reveals the life and background of the Mexican painter’s works in an interactive way. Using digital tools and animation, visitors are able to learn about several events that marked Frida’s life and work.
