If you’re looking for a unique way to celebrate Dia de Muertos, consider spending an evening on a private beach watching a mystical performance conducted by a cast of all local Mexican artists.
Nahuales, A Mystical Night, will hold a special show for Dia de los Muertos featuring a cempasuchil on the beach, special dress and makeup on the performers and Karma La Perra as a Catrina. It will all happen on Monday, November 1, 2022 (their normal weekly shows are on Sunday).
Tickets are $120 USD per person, and includes the shows, a boat ride (approximately 45 minutes), an open bar, dancing, a DJ, an after show party, and food prepared by authentic local Mexican residents of the island that you will visit. The boat leaves from the Los Muertos Pier at 7 p.m.
Inspired by a Mexican legend from the Mesoamerican folk region, a nagual (pronounced na’wal), is a human who has the power to shapeshift into their animal counterpart. The legend is tied to the belief that one can access power and spiritual insight by connecting with their animal counterpart within.
The team of performers have taken Nahuales, a Mystical Night – and created a show where the performers find their animal counterparts, amazing you with their acrobatic talents.
This spectacular live performance features professional dancers and circus-like performances including a live fire dance. You’ll be amazed at the acrobatic performances held on a stage at a private beach. Nahuales is full of mysticism, magic and eroticism, presenting an incredible show with artists who dominate fire.
Each show performer has an area they specialize in, and features a contemporary and voguing dancer, a circus acrobat, a cyr wheel artist, and a dancer-contortionist.
The show is approximately 40 minutes long, and afterwards you’ll be able to meet and talk with each performer.
What to Expect:
When you arrive, the boat will dock at a pier, and once on the beach you can dance to music played by a local DJ, and watch the sunset while you enjoy an open bar, fruits, snacks and select one of three different types of Ceviches (including a vegetarian option).
After the sunsets the real show begins!
Your ticket to the show also supports local Mexican talent, since the show is produced and performed by all locals. Many of whom you may recognize from other local performances.
