Puerto Morelos Life

Ringing in the New Year Puerto Morelos Style

December 27, 2023

Ready or not, here it comes! It’s almost New Year’s Eve my friends! Our little town is hopping with locals and tourists alike… We have reached the time of year where parking is impossible and having to wait for a table at your favorite restaurant is common! But with all of these people in town, the New Year’s Eve parties are sure to be fun!

Don’t forget the grapes?!

Whether you’re celebrating with a night on the town or from the comfort of your home, be sure to embrace some of the local traditions…

Don’t be surprised to see grapes at a New Year’s Eve party in Mexico. When the countdown begins before the clock strikes midnight, it’s tradition to eat 12 grapes. Each one represents a wish for the months to come in the new year.

Also- be sure to choose your underwear wisely on December 31st! Yes, you read that correctly. Your undie color is a precursor for the year to come… Red for love, yellow for prosperity and happiness, green for wealth and well being, and white for hope and peace.

And probably our FAVORITE local tradition would be watching the first sunrise of the year from our gorgeous beach! Whether you stay up all night and into the morning OR wake up before the sun, get down to the beach on the 1st to join in on the tradition.

ADIOS, 2023! HOLA, 2024.
