Night of the Independence.

On September 15, the Night of the Cry of Independence is one of Mexico's most emblematic celebrations. In Riviera Maya, places recreate ceremonies of the famous "Grito de Dolores" by Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla in 1810.


In the Municipal Palaces.

The Riviera Maya, as in all of Mexico, became the epicenter of the Fiestas Patrias celebrations. On September 15, thousands gathered in front of these majestic structures to witness and participate in the "Grito de Independencia."

The mayor says the well-known words of Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, "Long live Mexico!" and mentions the national heroes. Bells ring, fireworks light up the sky, and the crowd's enthusiasm is palpable, creating an exciting and proud experience.

Mexicans also live the essence of the Fiestas Patrias in their homes. Families get together to share moments of joy, love, and tradition. One of the most emblematic activities is cooking traditional Mexican dishes, such as pozole or mole. Preparing this delicious and complex sauce is a labor that involves time and dedication. Still, the result is an explosion of flavors representing Mexico's diversity in a single dish.
