LOS CABOS, MEXICO – Hacienda del Mar (HDM) Los Cabos Resort is excited to announce that it will continue its celebrations of Mexican heritage through the annual festival of Día de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead) on November 1st complete with a parade and an altar to the dead.

Helping tourists and guests alike to continue experiencing Mexican culture, HDM will give visitors a memorable, immersive entrée into the world of Mexican tradition that includes a festive concept of death throughout its Day of the Dead celebrations! Starting with the Day of the Dead parade, which is one of the most symbolic processions known throughout the world, guests will enjoy the age-old custom that allows the living to accompany the souls of their deceased family and friends on a temporary way back to their earthly homes. Symbolic features such as candles and marigolds often serve to guide the souls along their journeys, and HDM’s parade will be chock full of vibrant colors and allegorical elements.

“The Day of the Dead festival hosted by HDM will see a night full of tradition in which our guests will be able to participate in our parade, accompanied by catrinas and catrines,” said Federico Rubido, HDM’s General Manager. “They will learn the meaning of our offerings and enjoy live music, dance shows, as well as the traditional bread of the dead, along with traditional hot chocolate and other typical drinks at the end of the parade.”

Following the parade will be the Day of the Dead offering, which is one of the main symbols of the celebration. An offering, also known as an altar, is a place where loved ones who left this world are invited to visit – guests will find themselves in a dimension that allows them to coexist among both the living and the dead. Through this celebration and other Mexican cultural festivities throughout the year, HDM invites all of its guests to celebrate and honor the timeless Mexican traditions that carry on to this day.
