Let’s celebrate the Day of the Dead in Riviera Maya

The largest Mexican celebration is approaching! Xcaret Park opens its doors from October 30th to November 2nd to receive the souls of those who have already departed to the afterlife on the Festival of Life and Death Traditions in its 16th edition.

During the Festival of Life and Death, there will be different theater plays, musical presentations, workshops, dance shows, and even a space just for children in the Interactive Hacienda, besides the traditional Mass for the Feast of All Saints on November 1st.  


In the 2022 edition, we will have Tlaxcala as a special guest to show us their cultural richness and traditions, including their varied gastronomy and beautiful artistic expressions. Celebrate the Day of the Dead at Xcaret!
