Upcoming Events in Puerto Morelos – April 19 – 25th, 2019 – Semana Santa!

Date: April 18, 2019

Hey Puerto Morelos fans!

Our little town is hopping this week – that is because this week marks the beginning of “Semana Santa” – the very festive Easter celebration in Mexico!

Although this holiday is typically referred to as “Semana Santa” (The Holy Week), it is really a two-week holiday consisting of Semana Santa (The Holy Week, beginning on Palm Sunday and ending Easter Saturday) and Pascua (Starting with Easter Sunday and ending the following Saturday).

Semana Santa is undoubtedly the most important holiday in Mexican culture. Schools and businesses in Mexico close during these two weeks and many Mexican families go on holiday during Semana Santa and Pascua.  If you’re on the beach during these two weeks you will find many extended families enjoying their time off!

Among other festivities (see below!) the town of Puerto Morelos is hosting Puerto Morelos Fest – La Joya del Caribe! – Here’s some more information on that:
