At Only Cabo Tours, we like to encourage visitors to truly embrace the culture here in Cabo San Lucas. The reason being is that it’s a beautiful culture with lots of traditions. One of the holidays celebrated here, as well as in the rest of Mexico, is called Dia de las Muertes, or Day of the Dead.
This holiday honors and celebrates ancestors and deceased loved ones. On this day, friends and family get together to pray for their loved ones and help support their spiritual journey. This is because many people believe that life does not end after death, which is why you will see many people bringing gifts to the cemetery of their deceased loved ones. Although Day of the Dead falls on November 2nd, festivities usually begin in the last week of October.
Throughout the city you will see parades, beautiful flowers, and friends and family celebrating together. You will also find traditional food, such as pan de muerto, which is translated as bread of the dead. This sweet, soft bread is shaped like a bun and can be found all of Cabo San Lucas.
If you’re going to be in Cabo San Lucas, or anywhere in Mexico, at the end of October or the beginning of November, don’t forget to celebrate this holiday with the locals. If you want to know more about the city and its history, go on a walking tour with a Los Cabos tour guide. Your guide will be able to answer any of your questions, tell you where to get the best pan de muerto, and show you hidden treasures in the city.
