PUERTO VALLARTA (August 1, 2022) — TAFER Hotels & Resorts – a leisure and hospitality company with an ever-growing and evolving collection of award-winning hotels, luxury resorts, and boutique villas located throughout Mexico’s most coveted beach destinations – has announced its Day of the Dead Celebration running throughout the month of November at all of its luxury all-inclusive resorts in Los Cabos, Cancun, and Puerto Vallarta. The inaugural event, which pays homage to Mexico’s traditional Día de los Muertos celebration, will include specialty gourmet culinary experiences, authentic Mexican music and dance performances, art exhibitions and immersive décor, various Day of the Dead-themed children’s activities, and more.
“Día de los Muertos has always been a key component of Mexico’s heritage as a way to honor and celebrate our ancestors, and we are thrilled to present our guests with an opportunity to experience parts of this tradition firsthand,” said Sasa Milojevic, Chief Operating Officer for TAFER Hotels & Resorts. “Our first official Day of the Dead Celebration will capture the essence of Mexico by curating unique and authentic experiences to both educate our guests and provide them with an unforgettable vacation at one of our properties.”
Guests who visit any of TAFER’s properties throughout November will have the opportunity to enjoy authentic Mexican fare at the resorts’ signature restaurants, including traditional Día de los Muertos items such as Pan de Muerto and tamales, and other dishes that incorporate festive ingredients like squash blossoms, corn, and sweet potatoes. Guests on the Gourmet Culinary All-Inclusive Plan can also indulge in a selection of signature Day of the Dead cocktails made and garnished with the iconic Mexican marigold flower, cempasúchil, which is referred to in Mexican culture as ‘the flower of dead’.
To honor the spirit of Day of the Dead, TAFER’s properties will be completely transformed throughout November with traditional altar displays, Catrina skulls used as décor for photo moments in the lobby, lively mariachi performances in the restaurants and common areas, local artist exhibitions, and more. Resort’s public pathways will be lined with cempasúchil flowers and sugar skulls, in addition to staff members adorned in colorful Día de los Muertos attire.
Drawing inspiration from Mexico’s indigenous customs and rituals, guests at the Day of the Dead Celebration can partake in several hands-on activities including sugar skull painting, papier-mâché making, trick or treating with classic Mexican treats, face-painting and more. At the Kids Club’s on property, children can learn how to write abbreviated versions of the satirical calavera poem, learn to make icing for sugar sweets, construct paper flowers and altar displays, watch Disney/Pixar’s Coco, among other activities. TAFER’s Day of the Dead Celebration will take place from November 1-30, 2022, at Garza Blanca Preserve Resort & Spa and Hotel Mousai in Puerto Vallarta, Villa del Palmar Cancun, Garza Blanca Resort & Spa Cancun, and Garza Blanca Resort & Spa Los Cabos. Festivities and activities will be complimentary for guests who purchase the Gourmet Culinary All-Inclusive Plan and will receive a mezcal welcome kit, daily in-suite traditional “Café de Olla” coffee, a romantic ritual massage for two, and more. Those who purchase the European Plan will have to pay an additional fee for certain events and activities.
