It's that time of year again! Halloween and Dia de los Muertos parties are starting to be announced! Just a few years ago, there was only one place to be on Halloween in Playa del Carmen and virtually no options for children hoping for a chance to dress up and "trick or treat"! Now there are all kinds of festivities and fun to be had for ghosts and ghouls of all ages.

Are you looking for a more authentically Mexican celebration of Day of the Dead or the Mayan Hanal Pixan? We'll have those spacial event listings posted as well!

This will be a running list of the events that will be updated as they are posted. Click on each image for event information.
