Día de Muertos - Day of the Dead

“Day Of The Dead” A holiday were Mexicans feel more alive than ever!

While many have taken on the tradition of trick or treating on Halloween,  here in Mexico the ultimate celebration is “The Day Of The Dead,” which goes on for a couple of days.

Legend has it that many believe the gates of heaven are opened at midnight on October 31, for the spirits of all deceased children to reunite with their families for 24 hours. On November 2, the spirits of the adults come down to enjoy the festivities that are prepared for them.

 

In many homes, beautiful altars (ofrendas) are made in honor of a loved one who passed away. They are decorated with candles, buckets of flowers (wild marigolds called cempasuchil ) mounds of fruit, peanuts, plates of what once was their favorite meals, and a special sweet bread, called pan de muerto (bread of the dead). The altar needs to have lots of food, bottles of soda, hot cocoa and water for the weary spirits. Toys and candies are left for the angelitos (little angels), and on Nov. 2, shots of mezcal are offered to the adult spirits. Little folk art skeletons and sugar skulls, purchased at open-air markets, provide the final touches.

Mexican Independence Day

Experience Mexico’s most spectacular celebration in true fiesta form!

If your next Cabo getaway falls in the middle of September, you definitely don’t want to miss all the liveliness and celebration of Mexico’s most spectacular fiesta, our Independence Day. The celebration begins on the 15th with local public officials performing reenactments of Miguel Hidalgo’s 1810 Grito de Dolores. Hidalgo, a priest in the town of Dolores, called for a revolution. His cry marked the beginning of an 11 year struggle ending with the victory of Mexico gaining independence from Spain.

In honor of Hidalgo’s cry and the symbolism it held, officials all over the entire country, in every major city and small towns, along with the people reenact the celebratory moment, chanting “Viva Mexico, Viva!” at 11pm. Thereafter, communities gather together to eat, drink, listen to live music and watch firework shows.

The Mexican president will speak to the country from a balcony in Mexico City’s famous “zocalo,” the main plaza. Like the city officials, he also will end with the cry, “Viva Mexico,” which in essence means, “long live Mexico.” He will then host a midnight dinner as the nation parties into the morning.The 16th is the actual “Independence Day,” and Cabo as well as other cities around the country begin the day with parades and continued fun. Las fiestas patrias, or patriotic celebrations carry on through the entire month of September. Because we know a thing of two about fiestas and celebrations. Even though it may be one of the hotter months to visit Los Cabos, it is without a doubt the most colorful and vibrant you will ever see this town.

To make your experience even more patriotic, ( upon request ) we can  prepare a “Mexican Night” in your villa! Have your own personal chef come show you some of the most traditional meals made on this special day with authentic decorations to brighten up the space. Our concierge team can also help you find the perfect spots to watch the reenactments performed in both Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. We assure you this will be one of the greatest fiestas you’ll attend!
