The Day of the Dead in Playa Del Carmen

Celebrate a distinctly Mexican holiday in Playa Del Carmen this November 1st: Day of the Dead. Mexico is host to active indigenous cultures that have been celebrating a similar holiday for at least 2,500 years. In modern times, the Day of the Dead is celebrated in connection with the international Catholic holidays All Saints Day and All Souls Day. The Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos focuses on gathering friends and family to pray for and remember the departed by joyful celebrations. Private altars are constructed for the deceased and are then decorated with their favorite foods and beverages, skull-shaped candies, and marigolds (known as flor de los muertos in Spanish).

The tradition of this holiday can be traced back to the Aztecs and Mayans, who ruled over Mexico (from Playa Del Carmen on the Atlantic coast to Acapulco on the Pacific coast) before the arrival of the Europeans in 1519. For the Aztecs, the tradition went that Mictecacihuatl, the Lady of the Dead and goddess of the underworld, was born and then sacrificed as an infant. She now watches over the bones of the dead and presides over the Day of the Dead.

Despite the macabre sound of this holiday, festivities are positively joyous during Dia de los Muertos. Mexico turns into a massive festival of flowers, lights, music, and delicacies. This is especially true in Playa Del Carmen.

Just when the weather is starting to cool off in the United States and the water reaches a perfect temperature in Playa Del Carmen, the festivities start. From October 30th to November 2nd, families will be busy decorating the town squares in every town and village. Competitions for the most creative, elaborate, or colorful shrines are common. The streets fill with music, dancing, and the aroma of tasty seasonal treats.

Because this is the time when dead souls are believed to return home, this is both a remembrance of those who have been lost, and more importantly a celebration of their life and life in general. If Mardi Gras meets Halloween sounds like a good thing to you, consider Playa Del Carmen for Dia de Los Muertos. Mexico at its finest can be observed on this unique holiday.

For a quintessential Mexican experience, come to Playa Del Carmen for Day of the Dead. Mexico was forever altered almost 500 years ago with the landing of Hernan Cortes on the island of Cozumel just off the coast of Playa Del Carmen, but the distinct culture of the Maya and the Aztec are still felt in these regions thanks to traditions like the Day of the Dead. Come see it for yourself and stay at one of our many Playa del Carmen hotels.
