Dia de Muertos in Puerto Vallarta
If you happen to be vacationing in Puerto Vallarta during the first weekend of November, you will be lucky enough to experience one of the most beautiful and important cultural celebrations in Mexico: Dia de Muertos. Also referred to as Dia de Muertos, and translating to “Day of the Dead”, it is a two-day celebration of the memory of friends and family members who have passed. Not a time of sadness, Dia de Muertos is a celebration of joy, love and memory, with many colorful traditions associated. If you are staying with us, you will be within easy walking distance to many of the celebrations. Here are a few you will want to see.
Stroll down our downtown city streets including Plaza Los Armas on the Malecon, Calle Iturbide, Los Arcos on the Malecon, Plaza Hidalgo and Lazaro Cardenas Plaza – all easily walkable from our luxury accommodations in the Romantic Zone – to see traditional Dia de los Muertos alters and carpets.
Visit the Plaza Los Armas and Los Arcos on the Malecon for a street party, music and dancing from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
Plaza Los Armas will host a full day of interactive activities, workshops and guided tours to help you participate and understand the history and tradition of Dia de Muertos in Puerto Vallarta.
