The tradition of the Day of the Dead is present in Mexico’s Majestic Paradise. From October 30 to November 2nd, Xcaret Park is ready to welcome the souls of those who already departed and return from beyond to visit their beloved ones.
In 2021 takes place the 15th edition of the Festival of Life and Death Traditions. To celebrate it, we receive the Mexican state of Quintana Roo as a special guest. Join the Hanal Pixán festivity or 'food of the souls', when the spirits receive permission to return to this plain for a few days to be with their families. They are welcomed with a traditional altar, where delicious foods from the gastronomy of the Yucatan Peninsula are present.
This 2021 edition of the Festival of Life and Death in Xcaret will include several artistic presentations such as dance, theater plays, workshops, and exhibitions, besides digital events to opening this celebration to a larger audience. Also, there will be the traditional space for children at the Interactive Hacienda, where they can learn while having fun, plus the All Saints Catholic mass on November 1st.
The Day of the Dead festivities in Mexico are enlisted as an Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. Come to celebrate life and remember those who have already departed at Xcaret, where you experience the best of Mexico.
