Experience The Authentic Mazatlan – From The Arts To The Day Of The Dead, It’s Fall In Mazatlan!

maz1So I have been to Mexico a couple of times in my life. I am thinking I want the full-on experience someday, not just a day or two. They seem to have a great list of things to do all year long. Mazatlán is one place I am thinking about. I can not go this year, but you should see what they have going on this fall…

Mazatlán, known as the Pearl of the Pacific, is a budget-friendly, year-round beach destination with a Colonial District that has over 400 years of history.  This fall, the city has a calendar of events that includes the Mazatlán Cultural Fest, the Day of the Dead Celebration, and the Mazatlán Bike Tour.

Mazatlán Cultural Festival
The Mazatlán Cultural Festival runs from October through December 2015 and celebrates the importance of performing arts to the city’s culture. High-caliber artists take to the city’s theaters, churches, squares, and open spaces to engage audiences through musical, theatrical, dance, literature, and fine art performances.

Mazatlán’s Day of the Dead Celebration
Mazatlán’s Day of the Dead “Dia De Los Muertos” Celebration is a two day festival that offers visitors from across the globe the opportunity to experience a unique Mexican cultural experience that has been celebrated for thousands of years. On November 1st and 2nd, the city of Mazatlán is taken over by skeleton masks and orange marigolds to honor the dead through parades, music, performances, and treats.

  11. I have only been to Puerto Vallarta and we did not experience any festivals. I’m fascinated by the Day of the Dead. A local museum to us always does a great celebration with alters and crafts for kids to learn more about the traditions.
