Stay tuned and don’t forget to contact us in case you need additional tips to join our National celebration near your vacation home.
It is easy to find a party to join near your vacation home. Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and Tulum will be hosting their fair share of Mexican parties. The options are many and almost every restaurant will have a special alcohol selection or menu to commemorate the Mexican Independence Day. The actual date of the National celebration is September 15th, but the “fiesta” will start on September 14th and other will continue until September 16th. These are some of our favorite places that will be hosting a Mexican Independence Day celebration:
In addition to all the Mexican fiestas going on in Riviera Maya, Xplor Eco Park will also be hosting a special edition of their famous Xplor Bravest Race on Sept 16th at 8:30 am. And it promises to have a more authentic approach in honor of our Independence Day. The 5 Kilometers of natural surroundings and obstacles will be super fun! The inscriptions to the race have ended but you can still enjoy it as a visitor, the cost per person is only $980.00 pesos. And it includes all the activities in the park plus the access to the event. The race itself is a once in a lifetime experience even for non-players. But the park with an underground river and crazy high zip lines will make you want to return and visit one more time.
El Grito is nothing more than the actual moment when the current president of Mexico shouts: Viva Mexico! And is always amazing to witness, live or on a huge screen in a local municipality park. If you don’t have anything else planned to celebrate this Mexican Independence Day. We recommend you to visit the municipal park in Playa del Carmen. The crazy party will be worth it, you can be sure of that. Lots of fireworks, the most delicious authentic food from food stands around, live music and dancing. The whole show starts around 7:00 pm and it ends around midnight. If you need transportation from your vacation home we will be more than happy to help. Mexican Independence Day is definitely something worth celebrating during your holidays.
