Day of the Dead Playa Del Carmen on Xcaret
We will be in Playa Car for day of the Dead this year, 24/10-7/11,although didn't realise when we booked. So I've been looking at what's on while we're there & wondering what would be estimated to do. We have a few things going planned so won't be able to do both so am wondering what's the best thing to do, Playa Del Carmen on 31/10 or Xcaret 2 day ticket to give us a day doing the park and a second day to go for day of the Dead.
Option 1) I see playa del Carmen have a parade on 31/10 but not sure exactly what goes on during the day/night
Option 2) book Xcaret on Mastercard so we get the second day free. Here we'd be going probably on 27/10 to the park as normal then go back on 02/11 when they have day of the Dead happening and extra things on for the occasion. I've read a lot of people say there's too much to do in one day so to go back for a second.
Any opinions from those of you who have done either or both?
