Sadly, the Akumal community has lost one of its most beloved members. Comedian Gus Lynch passed away on November 30, 2014 after a fall at the Mayan ruins of Coba while vacationing in the Riviera Maya.
Gus founded the destination’s popular annual Akumal Comedy Festival in 2012, and he was a symbol of fun and joy for the local community.
On Saturday night (December 6) starting at 8pm, there will be a Gus Lynch Memorial Evening of Laughter and Tears. The event will take place at one of Gus’ favorite places: La Buena Vida beach bar in Akumal. For more info, check out the Facebook event page, which says, “Come on out and share a drink, a laugh, tell a story, smoke a cigarette, do whatever … The sky’s the limit. Bring your own booze or buy from La Buena Vida. There will be snacks.”
Gus Lynch is survived by his wife and two children.
