Now this is an Easter Celebration

Nothing is ever boring in Mexico, including Easter!

on my horizon...

How do Mexicans and Expat US citizens celebrate Easter Sunday?

They burn a bunch of effigies of undesirables and Judas figures…. and for the finale they exploded this figure in a blue suit with bouffant hair.

The sign says: DONALD, pero no el pato (but not the duck). There was no doubt and the many US refugees in the crowd loved it as did the Mexican families. What a difference from sitting in Church for your Easter Sunday tradition.

Top 12 Places in Cancun and the Mayan Riviera, Mexico

If you’re planning a trip to Mexico, this is a must-read!

No Hay Bronca

Got a hankering for some time on a tropical beach? Deep blue sky, turquoise water, gentle waves and soft sand? A styrofoam cooler by your side, packed with sweating Coronas? Yeah, that sounds about right.

You can find nice beaches all over Mexico’s 5,800 miles of seashore, but when you picture paradise, you’re probably thinking of the Mayan Riviera, the 90-mile stretch of Caribbean coastline from Cancun in the north to Tulum in the south (and beyond to Punto Allen, by some estimations).

Cancun, the unofficial capital of the Mayan Riviera, is famous for all-inclusive luxury resorts, with all-day pool parties and all-you-can eat restaurants. Similar though larger resorts are all along the coast too, like fancy communities with private beaches and activities for all ages.

But, while the beach may be the big draw in the Mayan Riviera, those who venture out of the resorts (or stay elsewhere) can explore ancient Mayan…

Day of the Dead

The Day of the Dead (El Día de los Muertos in Spanish) is a Mexican and Mexican-American celebration of dead ancestors which occurs on November 1 and November 2, coinciding with the similar Roman Catholic celebrations of All Saints Day and All Souls Day. While it is primarily viewed as a Mexican holiday, it is also celebrated in communities in the United States with large populations of Mexican-Americans, and to a lesser extent elsewhere in Latin America. Despite the morbid subject matter, this holiday is celebrated joyfully, and though it occurs at the same time as Halloween, All Saints Day, and All Souls Day, the mood of The Day of the Dead is much lighter, with the emphasis on celebrating and honoring the lives of the deceased, rather than fearing evil or malevolent spirits.
