Day of the Dead Meets Halloween in Puerto Vallarta

Day of the Dead Meets Halloween in Puerto Vallarta

Garza Blanca Resort in Mexico’s friendliest destination, Puerto Vallarta, is the perfect location to celebrate the Day of the Dead and Halloween. At Garza Blanca Preserve Resort & Spa, the two events will be combined in one celebration held on October 31 this year that includes dining, drinking, dancing, partying, and all types of activities.

But what do you know about Mexico’s Day of the Dead? And how does it compare to Halloween?

El Día de Muertos

El Día de Muertos – November 2nd

November 2nd rather than October 31st is when Mexico’s Day of the Dead or Día de Muertos is celebrated. This is a way that Mexicans can pay tribute and honor those loved ones who have passed away. Altars are created and decorated with a variety of items that include sugar skulls, marigolds, photographs and candles, complemented with bottles of their favorite drinks, and food. When you are visiting Mexico during this time you can see the altars in schools, churches, cemeteries, and in homes too. This is the time that friends and family members get a chance to celebrate their passed loved one.

Halloween – October 31st

Halloween is celebrated in many countries around the world, including Mexico in recent years. This time of year dedicated to fun, pranks, and dressing up is now the second most celebrated holiday in the United States. Although traditions have changed throughout the years, it seem that adults and children enjoy dressing in costumes, having parties, and celebrating Halloween.
