Cinco de Mayo at Viceroy Riviera Maya

May 5, 2022 - May 7, 2022

The team at Viceroy Riviera Maya is excited to welcome our guests to our Cinco de Mayo Celebration. Not to be mistaken with our national Independence Day, Cinco de Mayo is nonetheless an important date in Mexican history that celebrates the date of the Mexican Army's victory over France during the Battle of Puebla amid the Franco-Mexican War of 1861. Over time, this date has evolved as an opportunity to celebrate our rich cultural traditions and colorful national heritage, commemorating all aspects of our identity. Join us for this special 3-day fiesta that highlights some of the elements that we are most proud of. We are happy to share with you our exclusive Cinco de Mayo Package, available now and starting on Thursday, May 5th, 2022.
