Oct 31 - Nov 2: El Dia de los Muertos – November 2nd marks the Day of the Dead (El Dia de Los Muertos), a time to pay respects to loved ones who have passed on from this life. One creative ritual for this holiday is to make beautifully decorated altars with sugar candy skulls, candles, orange marigolds, figurines alluding to death and even the favorite dishes of the deceased, to adorn the elaborate altars. Many altars and offerings to the dead are placed in the main plaza in the days leading up to November 2nd. Traditionally, friends and family gather at the cemetery, where celebrations continue at the burial site of the loved one. The tombs and graves are decorated and candles burn throughout the night. Mexicans believe that their loved ones are present to commune with on this day.


Nov 20: Dia de La Revolution – November 20th marks Revolution Day, a national holiday celebrating the anniversary of the Mexican Revolution, from 1910 to 1920, when Pancho Villa led a revolt to take back the land from the oppressive, Spanish hacienda owners. Colorful parades, parties and traditional folklore dances are exhibited in most communities across the country. Sayulita boasts a great parade with students from local schools, dancing horses and traditional homemade dishes sold in the plaza, such as pozole, tacos, tamales and much more.


Dec 9 – 12: El Dia De Guadalupe – Anyone visiting Sayulita during the week leading up to December 12th will more than likely be awoken by the sounds of cannons, fireworks and church bells going off at 5:00 a.m., as Sayulita and Mexico celebrate Mexico’s patron saint, Our Lady of Guadalupe, also known as La Virgen Morena. A long-lived tradition, Catholics in Mexico rise before dawn and attend mass. It is common to see Virgin Guadalupe altars in homes, simple homages to the “Queen of Mexico,” with framed images of “Our Lady of Guadalupe” surrounded by flowers and holy candles.
