Mexico Holy Week shows traditional country - 23 Jan 2007
With Christmas still in the not-too-distant past, it seems strange to start thinking about Easter. Unless you're considering a holiday in Mexico that is.
The Holy Week in Ajijic is marked by some of the best celebrations you will ever see in the Latin American country, with April 9th to the 16th witnessing the time when Mexicans themselves also take their holidays.
Palm Sunday sees a re-enactment of Jesus arriving in Jerusalem down the main street of Hidalgo with plenty of locals, as well as those enjoying a Mexico holiday, on hand to welcome the performance.
More religious events are re-enacted throughout the week, culminating in a version of the Resurrection on Easter Sunday that serves as the climax to the Holy Week.
With plenty of colour and commitment, the week is a great way to get in touch with traditional Mexico, while there is still the option to head to the likes of Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Playacar for some great beaches and relaxation.
