“A few months ago we made the decision to postpone the realization of the events that we had scheduled for this year, including the Festival of Life and Death Traditions, with the commitment to safeguard the well-being of each of our visitors, collaborators and guests, attending to the security measures issued by the World Health Organization to avoid high attendance events. However, we seek a way to reinvent ourselves to keep this tradition alive, considered a masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity, and share it with all of Mexico and the world thanks to technology, which, despite the distance, allows us to be closer than ever, ”

Lizeth Álvarez, Grupo Xcaret's Commercial Executive Director

The video of the festival will go out on November 1 at 7:00 p.m. (Cancun time) and 6:00 p.m. (Mexico City time) through the Parque Xcaret YouTube channel and will offer a tour of the history of the festival, its sociocultural impact and the artistic expressions that this Mexican tradition entails. This production will also show some of the iconic settings of the Xcaret park that are part of the festival every year, such as the Cemetery, the Crypt of Sighs and the Hacienda Henequenera.

Álvarez pointed out that for Xcaret Group, the Festival of Life and Death Traditions has great significance, not only because it allows them to enhance the value of a tradition so deeply rooted in the Mexican spirit as the Day of the Dead is, but because from its first edition in 2006, has given them the opportunity to show the richness of their culture and, above all, preserve the historical legacy of this celebration.
