The largest Catrina in Baja California Sur is in Los Cabos
Elegant, imposing and majestic is how the Catrina built by the Casa Dorada hotel is seen from different points of “El Medano” beach, with the aim of preserving the traditions of the Day of the Dead. The hotel complex has been making catrinas with recycled materials for the past five years, so that its foreign guests can learn a little about Mexican traditions.
David Sanz, director of Food and Beverage at Hotel Casa Dorada, explained that the Catrina is the largest in all of Baja California Sur and what they are looking for with this monument is to learn about the history and traditions of the country to ensure that the eyes of the world are focused on the destination at all times.
“We have been respecting the Day of the Dead for five years now. We never want to be left behind with this important celebration, we want to give something to talk about in the destination. This year we want to invite all the people of Baja California Sur to come and see the largest catrina in all of Baja California Sur, 13 meters tall.
30 days of hard work using cardboard, wood, fabric and eight people were necessary to create one of the most beautiful monuments alluding to the Day of the Dead.
Martin Estrada, in charge of the project, mentioned that every year they seek to exalt Mexican culture, which is internationally recognized.
