2017 Day of the Dead in Mazatlán
Visit Mazatlan, Sinaloa and celebrate Dia de los Muertos in the Centro Historico and beyond!

November 1, 2017

Click to learn more about Mazatlan Day of the Dead!

Day of the Dead / Dia de los Muertos Mazatlan 2017If you want to experience a truly profound and theatrical Mexican cultural event, look no further that the Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) in Mazatlan!

The Dia de los Muertos holiday observed throughout Mexico is centered on gatherings of family and friends to remember, pray for and celebrate the lives of family members and companions who have died.

The Day of the Dead is always November 1, and is the middle of a three day period -- October 31, November 1 and November 2 -- that marks All Hallows' Eve, Hallowmas, and All Souls' Day.

Far from being somber, the Day of the Dead in Mazatlan -- and throughout Mexico -- is very much a celebration, and life-affirming.

The public celebration of Dia de los Muertos in Mazatlan begins the evening of November 1st, in the heart of the Centro Historico, the Plaza Machado. At about 8pm wildly costumed crowds begin a festive parade (Callejoneada) through the Centro Historico. Skeltons and Catrinas are a common sight, and skull makeup is very much the look, especially for the ladies.

In 2016 over 200 artists performed as part of the Mazatlan Day of the Dead celebrations, and revelers in the Centro Historico enjoyed donkey carts loaded with beer, as well as the many galleries and other businesses that stayed open and invited strollers to enjoy their Day of the Dead shrines.

Easter Week / Semana Santa in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, México

Un aviso a nuestros visitantes parlantes español Esta texto obviamente contiene una traducción por máquina. Pedimos disculpas para la calidad inferior de este seudo-español, pero esperamos que se entienda el texto y encuentre de utilidad la información.

Mazatlan is in the very top group of Semana Santa / Easter Week beach destinations in Mexico -- the others being Acapulco, Cancun, Huatulco, Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta and Veracruz -- and many would argue that it is uniquely sophisticated because it is the only city on the list that is both a colonial gem and a beach town.

Mazatlán está en el grupo superior de los destinos de playa de Semana Santa en México - los otros son Acapulco, Cancún, Huatulco, Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta y Veracruz - y muchos diría que es único y sofisticado, ya que es la única ciudad en la lista que es a la vez una joya colonial y un pueblo de playa.

In 2018, Semana Santa / Easter Week in Mazatlan runs from Sunday March 25th (Domingo de Ramos) until Monday April 2nd (Lunes de Pascua).

En 2018, la Semana Santa / Semana de Pascua en Mazatlán corre a partir del 25 de marzo (Domingo de Ramos) hasta el 2 de abril (Lunes de Pascua).

Almost all cities and towns in Mexico have public observances of Easter during the two-week period that starts on Palm Sunday and extends at least until Easter Sunday and, in some locales, into the following week. Mazatlan is no different, offering a full range of Catholic and Protestant Christian celebration for the observant.

Casi todas las ciudades y pueblos de México tienen celebraciones públicas de Pascua durante el período de dos semanas que se inicia el Domingo de Ramos y se extiende al menos hasta el domingo de Pascua y, en algunos lugares, en la semana siguiente. Mazatlán no es diferente, ofreciendo una gama completa de celebración católica y protestante cristiana para el observador.

Celebration of Easter Week / Semana Santa in Mazatlan is dominated by the Catholic faith, and as with most Catholic traditions in Mexico, the religious celebrations related to Holy Week and Easter are based on the Roman Catholic calendar inherited from the Spanish, with Holy Week preceded by Lent and Ash Wednesday, which are themselves preceded by Carnival.

Celebración de la Semana Santa en Mazatlán está dominado por la fe católica, y como con la mayoría de las tradiciones católicas en México, las celebraciones religiosas relacionadas con la Semana Santa y Pascua se basan en el calendario católico romano heredado de los españoles, con la Semana Santa precedida por la Cuaresma y Miércoles de Ceniza, que a su vez están precedidos por Carnaval.

In addition to the plays, dance and musical performances presented at the Angela Peralta, The Pearl of The Pacific also offers two other venues where you can enjoy beautifully staged live theatrical performances: the Antonio Haas Theater just off the Malecon at the Fisherman's Monument (sometimes referred to as the IMSS Theater) and the delightful Casa Haas right in the Centro Historico.

Mazatlan also has a number of annual theater, dance and concert festivals that take place throughout the year, notably the Mazatlan Cultural Festival; Temporada Primavera; Cine Septiembre; the Jose Limon Dance Festival and the parts of the Sinaloa Cultural Festival that are staged in Mazatlan.

Mazatlan also has plenty of multi-screen multiplex movie theaters, as well as a two substantial Blockbuster video stores that carry many titles on DVD and Blu-ray discs in English including a selection of foreign and art films with subtitles drawn from cimema from around the world.

Angela Peralta Theater Mazatlan MexicoThe Angela Peralta Theater in the Centro Historico is clearly the gem of stage theater in Mazatlan.

With a history dating from its opening in 1874, this magnificent 800 seat performance space has hosted the most important performers who have graced Mazatlan stages. The theater is now part of the Mazatlan Municipal Center for the Arts which features art galleries and an internationally-acclaimed fine arts school that are important cultural resources not only for Mazatlan but for Sinaloa State and all of Mexico.

Founded in 1992 by dancer-choreographers Claudia Lavista and Victor Manuel Ruiz, the company is a unique collective of artists whose repertory reflects a creative vision is characterized by energetic fluid physicality and poetic sensibilities.

Delfos’ work has been presented throughout Mexico as well as in a very large number of other countries including the United States where it has received support and recognition by -- among many others -- the National Endowment for the Arts.

For just a tiny taste of just how sophisticated the dance and staging of a Delfos Danza Contemporanea performance at Teatro Angela Peralta can be just play the video below.

Mazatlan Movie Theater DirectoryThere are a substantial number of modern multi-screen movie theaters in Mazatlan.

The multiplex theaters listed below show a wide range of internationally popular English language films, as well as Spanish language films made in Mexico and elsewhere in Latin America or Spain.

In many cases English language films are shown with English audio and Spanish subtitles but -- if you don't like overdubbing -- it's always good to check before you buy your ticket!

Schedules of films currently showing at movie theaters in Mazatlan can be viewed on the film listings part of all of the cinemas' websites.

For Americans and Canadians used to high movie theater ticket prices, going to see a film at a Mazatlan multiplex is like rolling your life-film back to the 1970s: tickets are about 3 dollars and those prices are mirrored in the prices of the movie-house food.

It gets even better: there are discount tickets on the Mazatlan movie theater websites if you buy a number of anytime-use tickets at once!

A Note about Mexican Movie Theater Food: Many Mexicans take their film-food dining quite seriously, and there are sinfully fun full-blown super high-calorie theater food meals served on trays that can be bought at most Mazatlan movie theaters! Bien Provecho!

DVD and video rental and purchase

Renting movies in MazatlanWant to rent a movie in Mazatlan? If so, the location where you will probably find the DVD you want will be very familiar: Blockbuster.

While brick-and-mortar film rental may be in decline in the United States and Canada because of Netflix (which has a substantial presence in Mazatlan and throughout Mexico) and other streaming media services, the traditional video store continues to thrive in the Pearl of The Pacific.

There are certainly many Mexican video stores in Mazatlan, but most will probably disappoint American and Canadian visitors. While some are large, they are often packed with very large numbers of the same DVD titles -- making for a limited selection no matter how large the store may be -- and sometimes carry English language films dubbed into Spanish, which is pretty unsatisfying to most native English speakers.

The two Mazatlan Blockbuster stores, on the other hand, carry virtually all of their English language films with English audio, and offer a far wider selection of classic English language cinema DVDs.

Blockbuster
Info about DVD / video rental and purchase in Mazatlan

The largest Blockbuster Video in Mazatlan is just inland from Valentino's on Camarón Sábalo. It is a substantial store, with a fairly wide selection of movies on DVD to choose from, including a good selection of foreign and art films.

There is also a smaller Blockbuster located on Insurgentes beside the Soriana supermarket, which also carries many foreign movie titles and classic Hollywood cinema.

While it is unlikely -- but not impossible -- that your Blockbuster sales person will speak fluent English, both Blockbusters are friendly places to rent movies, and issue membership cards to tourists and seasonal visitors with reasonable identification.

Both Blockbusters are open every day; have secure off-street parking; 24-hour drop boxes, accept credit cards, sell used and new DVDs and video games, and offer a wide and deep selection of movie-time junk food.
