Picture this: you sunbathing, with a delicious margarita in hand and enjoying one of the top luxury All-Inclusive hotels in the region, who can resist the opportunity? Some people may pass on the chance because of family gatherings but you can always convince your entire family to spend the winter vacation somewhere different; a place filled with stress-free days where you can enjoy magical culture and traditions of Mexico.

Christmas in Mexico is a mixture of new ideas and rooted traditions, creating an exceptional festivity. The holiday parties start on December 16th with what is called a posada. It begins with the reenactment of Mary and Joseph looking for a place to rest in Bethlehem; Mexican locals will ask for shelter just like Jesus’ parents did in ancient times. The processions conclude with a big celebration including traditional cuisine by the masses each with its own distinct flavor and piñatas.

During this time of year, Mexicans express their warmth by welcoming others into their homes for a dinner celebration; the sense of community is strong while positive energy envelopes every place. If you are visiting the Riviera Maya during the Winter holidays, we highly advise looking for activities around your resort; also, ask about any special activities the hotel might be planning.
