The premise behind this holiday's celebration is that for these two days, the dead return and join the living for feasting and celebrations. Throughout Cancún you can see the loving preparation for this "visit" in street parades, decorated cemeteries and street-side shrines honoring those who have died. Citywide mariachi bands play at street corners, decorations hang throughout the shop windows and parties spring up everywhere. Enjoy the opportunity to view holiday traditions that date back thousands of years. Admission is free and events are largely unscheduled.
