What’s Up in Puerto Morelos! | October 25 – November 1, 2019

Date: October 24, 2019

Hey Puerto Morelos fans!

It’s so fun to be in Puerto Morelos this time of year!

All the snowbirds are returning and there’s an air of excitement, plus slightly cooler weather (whew!)

This week it’s all about Halloween and the Day of the Dead celebrations.

The Halloween Walk About is on Thursday, starting at 5 p.m. in the town square. It’s a really fun event! There will be a bunch of kids, face painting and other goodies, plus the trick or treating. The organizers are still looking for volunteers, candy and donations, so if you still want to help, you’re needed!

If you would like to donate candy, please drop it off at our office and if you would like to make a monetary donation, please use one of the methods below:

Halloween in Puerto Morelos is super fun, but we are also gearing up for the Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos, November 2. This beautiful traditional holiday is a celebration and honoring of our beloved who have passed away.

If you’re in the area now, you may have noticed lots of vendors selling Marigold flowers around town. Marigolds are one of the most easily recognizable symbols of Dia de los Muertos. … It is said that these flowers use their color and scent to guide the spirits to their respective altars during Dia de los Muertos.

This year, many homeowners and businesses will prepare and display their Ofrendas and there will be a tour of altars on Saturday, November 2nd. More info on this next week!
