There’s no better day to be in Mexico than Mexican Independence Day and there’s no better place to be than at Dreams Resorts & Spas!
This festive day was celebrated at some of our beloved Mexican resorts with a giant, all day party. Everyone showed their spirit by flying the green, white and red Mexican flag. A true Mexican fiesta, our guests were treated to spectacular entertainment, traditional Mexican fare and non-stop fun!
In the early morning of September 16th 1810 a church bell in Dolores, Guanajuato rang out, gathering all the towns’ people. A priest named Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla wanted to gather the people of Mexico to rise against the Spanish crown. It took another 11 years for Mexico to gain independence but this event, known as the Grito de Dolores, was the spark that began it all.
Today the biggest celebration happens in Mexico City where at 11 p.m. on the night of the 15th the President steps out on to the balcony of the National Palace overlooking a massive crowd in the decorated courtyard. There he rings a similar bell to the one once used by Hidalgo and comments on the historical Heroes of Mexico ending with an enthusiastic “Viva Mexico!”

Experience real Mariachi music, authentic Mexican cuisine, traditional Mexican-style games and activities and to top it all off the beautiful color and life that only a celebration from the passionate people of Mexico could accomplish.
