Enjoy a Super Semana Santa at our Sunset Rooftop
Semana Santa (Holy Week) is one of Mexicans’ favorite holidays, as it is a good time to commemorate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Many people also take the opportunity to go on vacation with their family or friends.
A great destination to spend these holidays is Tulum, on Mexico’s Caribbean coast. Not only does it have some of the most beautiful beaches in the country, but it also has several religious sites that hold events and ceremonies related to the Semana Santa. And to top it all off, you can stay at Kimpton Aluna Resort Tulum, the best resort with a sunset rooftop that will allow you to have a sacred moment of rest.
Attractions and points of interest in Tulum during the Semana Santa
- As we mentioned earlier, Tulum is home to several Catholic churches, including the Iglesia de San Francisco de Asis and the Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, both known for their stunning architecture and religious artworks. These churches offer special masses, processions, and other spiritual events throughout the Semana Santa, drawing many worshippers from across the area. And, since these ceremonies are open to the public, tourists can take part as well.
- One of the most popular events is the Procesión del Santo Entierro, or Holy Burial. This is a ceremonial procession held on Good Friday, in which a statue of the crucified Christ is carried through the town’s streets, followed by a large congregation of worshippers singing hymns and carrying candles. A moving and emotional event that attracts people of all ages and nationalities.
- In addition to the religious commemorations that take place in Tulum, most local businesses also celebrate the Semana Santa. Many restaurants and bars offer special menus, deals, and events during this time. Visitors can sample traditional Mexican dishes such as bacalao (salted cod), capirotada (bread pudding), and chiles en nogada (stuffed peppers with walnut sauce). You can also enjoy delicious authentic Mexican drinks such as tequila, mezcal, and margaritas.
