Christmas pinatas in Yucatan, Mexico

No fiesta de Navidad (Christmas party) or fiesta de Año Nuevo (New Year party) would be complete without a bright, beautiful piñata! The holiday piñatas are usually wrapped in gold or silver foil and decorated with symbols of Christmas (like poinsettias or Santa) made out of tissue paper. You will see them hanging everywhere in Yucatan and the Riviera Maya well into the New Year.
