Our Halloween and Day of the Dead Weekend: Puerto Morelos Style

We had a great time this weekend with the Halloween and Day of the Dead Festivities!  Thought I'd share some Puerto Morelos photos and some fun Day of the Dead shots that I took over the weekend.
  • The long weekend started off Friday morning with Caden's School program on the Day of the Dead.
  • Saturday we attended Puerto Morelos' Trick or Treat and had a great time!
  • Monday we went to Xcaret for their Day of the Dead Festival.  It was SPECTACULAR and definitely something we'll do again next year!

Trick or Treat!

Caden and I enjoyed Xcaret's Day of the Dead Festival

My favorite altar in their Altar Exposition

 Another altar example.  
(The altars' composition vary regionally.  So, it was neat to see many different examples.)

 What a way to go!  The examples of the Mexican Gravesites are so awesome!

 Another scene here.

 And yet another here.

Caden was excited to be a skeleton!
