Day of the Dead
In Mexico, the souls of those of the deceased are celebrated once a year on Día de los Muertos. Death is embedded in Mexican traditions, history, and literature—the deceased are considered a living presence and are welcomed back with colorful, cheerful ornaments and images.
The park of Xcarat take this celebration seriously. With a celebratory gala, dancing, exhibitions, and traditional food, Xcaret hosts the largest Day of the Dead festivities on the Yucatán peninsula. Expect displays of marigold flowers, figurines, and performances, headlined by legendary Mexican group Los Ángeles Azules, who performed last year at Coachella. As well as all the festivities, tickets provide entrance to Xcarat’s aviary, aquarium, butterfly enclosure, and swimming pools. October 30th–November 2nd.
