Casa Decu – Mexico’s Day of the Dead

If someone said to name the one country in the world that celebrates this festivity more authentically than any other, the answer would easily be Mexico. Celebrating the Day of the Dead instead of the typical Halloween, Mexico spends three days remembering the dead and honouring the souls of the people they have lost. It is believed that the spirits of those lost return for these three days, in order to spend time with their loved ones.

A beautiful time full of family and love, it is also one full of colour and celebration; beginning on October 31st every year, Mexico explodes with life as people dance and sing their way through these three days of other worldly connection. Any incredible experience to witness, everyone must see Mexico during this time at least once in their life, and Casa Decu is the ideal place to stay during such a visit. Nestled in the heart of Mexico City, it’s luxurious contemporary design creates a blissful atmosphere in which to unwind and absorb the experience of one of the greatest celebrations on earth.

Running for the 48th time, expect giant puppets, colourful floats and big personalities bringing you the frighteningly fabulous energy that every Halloween needs.

This year the parade is dedicated to the Children of New York City who could not celebrate the occasion last year, and they were asked to design the puppets that will lead the procession – here at HIP Hotels, we can’t wait to see what spooktacular characters they have created! To make this treat of an event even sweeter, be sure to check into Mondrian Park Avenue during your stay and enjoy their Fa-BOO-lous offer of 31% off all month long!
