Panic En La Playa Seis Recap 

Our heartfelt appreciation to everyone who donated an auction item, brought supplies for the donation drive, and participated in the Day of Service, Musical Poolside Bingo, Setlist Pool, Texas Hold’Em and Charity Golf Tournament. Read more about the 2017 initiatives below or get the full report from our adventure by visiting Positive Legacy's website.


Widespread Panic percussionist Sunny Ortiz joined our day of service and intercultural exchange in the village of Dos Palmas. We painted murals around the school and helped complete a sports court where the children can revive traditional Mayan games. When our service work was done, we took a cool dip in a cenote and had a tasty lunch prepared by the local community. We closed out the afternoon with a special Mayan ceremony where everyone received a blessing and cleansing by a local shaman.
Last year's Positive Legacy auction raised $50,000! Sending a special thank you to Widespread Panic and their management, all the fans for supporting the auction with their bids and custom donations, and to Josh Timmermans and Dave Vann for their beautiful photography. Positive Legacy is grateful for your continued support year after year. Auction proceeds will support Positive Legacy’s environmental and humanitarian projects throughout the Caribbean and especially help our partner, Dreams for Mayan Children. Stay tuned for 2018 info.
Positive Legacy and Trees, Water & People make it easy to travel responsibly, by offsetting the emissions from your travel to Mexico for Panic en la Playa. We appreciate those that donated to the carbon offset program in 2017. Your donations support a community tree nursery that is producing 10,000 trees a year for rural communities on the north coast of Haiti, providing the sequestration of thousands of tons of carbon dioxide emissions. You can offset your carbon footprint by making a donation when booking your Siete reservation.
