Festival of Life and Death Traditions at Xcaret

Celebrate the Day of the Dead at Riviera Maya

Visit Xcaret from October 30th to November 2nd and welcome the souls coming from beyond. Enjoy a broad activity program at the Best Park in the World when the spirits of our beloved ones return to visit their relatives and friends.

The 14th edition of the Festival of Life and Death Traditions has the Mexican state of San Luis Potosí as the guest of honor. Artists and artisans from this region will be at Xcaret to let us be part of their costumes. The 2019 edition will also have theater plays and concerts by artists from Spain and Peru, as well.

Join the Xantolo, a celebration from the Huasteca region that tributes those who left this Earth. The Day of the Dead festivities in Mexico are enlisted as Intangible World Heritage by UNESCO.

The program for this year includes theater plays, dance shows, several concerts, and the traditional All Saints’ Catholic mass. Also, there will be interactive workshops, exhibitions, and the Interactive Hacienda which is a space for children and grown-ups where they can learn and have fun while learning about the many Day of the Dead traditions.

For the 14th edition of the Festival of Life and Death Traditions at Xcaret, there will be two Gala Concerts on November 1st and 2nd, starring Los Ángeles Azules. Dance and sing along their classic hits at the best stage in Cancun and Riviera Maya: Gran Tlachco Theater.

Celebrate the life and tribute the ones that had already departed at Xcaret, Mexico’s Majestic Paradise.
