Two of Cancun’s most exciting attractions—Xel-ha, a natural aquarium and park, and Xcaret, the region’s premier eco-archaeological park—will host events celebrating the vibrant Mayan tradition of Hanal Pixàn, El Dia De Los Muertos—better known in English as the “Day of the Dead”.

On November 1st and 2nd, the annual event brings friends and family together to honor the memory of their loved ones who have passed away. According to tradition, it is during this time that the souls of the departed return to the earth to remember those things they enjoyed during their lives.
