The most famous celebration in all of Latin American culture, Día de Muertos (day of the dead), is fast approaching, with travelers undoubtedly hoping to experience even just a fraction of the magic that this mesmerizing cultural event creates each year.
The colorful costumes, amazing food, and heartfelt cultural activities fill the destination of Los Cabos with an atmosphere that can’t be found anywhere else in the world.
But for travelers, trying to navigate this event can be a difficult task;
Where to go, what to do, and when to do it?
Finding answers to these questions and then working out the logistics can be enough to take the shine off what should be a magical experience.
With that being said, for a lucky few, these barriers to enjoyment have been torn down and replaced with open doors by one of Los Cabos’ most sought-after resorts.
Garza Blanca Resort & Spa Los Cabos
The Garza Blanca is a true diamond in Los Cabos’ crown; this family-friendly resort offers a world-beating level of luxury all wrapped up in a fantastically priced all-inclusive package.
Its contemporary décor and design, world-class spa, and gourmet food are a huge draw for travelers throughout the year, but this luxurious resort, which is part of the highly-respected TAFER resort family, has outdone itself with its recently announced Día de Muertos event.
A November Like No Other
Día de Muertos is traditionally celebrated on the 1st and 2nd of November, which really narrows down the possibility for many travelers to live this experience.
Thankfully, travelers lucky enough to land a booking at the Garza Blanca will get to enjoy the magic for the whole month of November.
Travelers staying at the Garza Blanca will be delighted with a huge variety of activities that include traditional music and dance performances, which will add a whole new dimension to the already fantastic entertainment on offer in the resort.
Of course, no celebration of Mexican culture would be complete without the atmospheric sounds of a live Mariachi band, which unsurprisingly is included in the live music performances.
On top of this, the resort will come alive with beautiful art displays, as well as special décor associated with Día de Muertos.
Perhaps the most anticipated part of this awesome celebration is the face painting.
The sugar skull art style is one of the most recognizable in the world, and travelers will be able to try out and experience this iconic look, as well as testing their own hand at painting one of these designs.
The Garza Blanca, like Mexico, is renowned for its food. This greatly loved aspect of the resort will become even more appreciated with the addition of traditional Día de Muertos dishes.
Two of the can’t-miss additions that travelers will be able to enjoy are pan de muerto, a soft and fluffy specialty bread sprinkled with sugar, and traditional tamales.
Even if a traveler has tried tamales before and has not been sold on them, it’s encouraged to sample those on offer at the Garza Blanca. There are hundreds of types of tamales throughout Latin America, and finding a tamale you like is like finding a whiskey; you just have to work through them all.
For travelers who appreciate preparing a meal as much as they do eating it, there will also be educational cooking classes on offer, which will send travelers home with the skills to make their Taco Tuesdays famous among friends and family.
To top it all off, guests at the Garza Blanca will be treated to expertly crafted signature cocktails that have been carefully designed to complement the whole event.
An Unmissable Escape
Los Cabos is no stranger to luxury, but the opportunity to experience Mexican culture up close and in so much colorful detail is unmissable for travelers planning a November escape.
That’s why the Garza Blanca Resort & Spa Los Cabos is an unmatched choice, offering travelers everything needed to have a dream vacation while also experiencing true wonder.
