Holy Week & Easter Sunday In Mexico

Easter Mexico, Semana Santa, Tarahumara indiana, Mexican Indians, Mexican Easter

Easter is a very big deal in Mexico.

The week leading up to the celebration of the resurrection of Christ, there are hundreds of small local festivals and events. This entire week of festivalsfood, and celebrations both secular and religious is referred to as La Semana Santa or holy week loosely. It coincides with Easter as Mexico is a predominantly Catholic country.

The festivities begin with palm Sunday in most small towns, where vendors and local artists will sell wares made from woven palm fronds to tourists and locals alike. Some palm decor will later be burned to produce the ashes for ash Wednesday. The symbolism of the palms and ashes comes directly from biblical references which recount the story of Jesus arriving in Egypt where his feet were soothed by the palm fronds that the Jews laid down before him as he walked through the streets.

Celebrations are more varied in areas with both a Spanish and Mexican Indian cultural heritage. Some indian tribes such as the Tarahumara indians of Chihuahua paint themselves white, and have ceremonial dances and processions that express a variety of mystic, catholic, and polytheistic  beliefs. 

The various festivals surrounding the week of Easter draw both locals and tourists alike. Many restaurants and businesses in Mexico make a pretty penny during this time preparing and selling seafood dishes due to restrictions on the Catholic diet on Fridays during lent. 

If you plan on travelling to Mexico during the Spring to take in the Semana Santa in the city or appreciate the beauty of an indigenous celebration, some car insurance for Mexico would be a good idea. 

The festivals during this time in the cities are MASSIVE, and traffic and accidents go hand-in-hand with those festivals. 

As always it is important to remember that Mexican auto liability laws are not the same as ours, and that it is absolutely essential to purchase auto insurance from a Mexican carrier if you plan to drive in Mexico.

Lazy Geniuses Save Trans-border Commuters Time

 

A cover story By Joel Stein of TIME Magazine this year claimed that the millennial generation and those currently attending Universities across the country are self centered and lazy. A laziness that Stein claims has become the mother of invention for things that make our lives easier and better every day.

 

A group of UCSD students confirmed Steins hypothesis this year when they released ‘Best Time to Cross,’ a border-crossing app that uses visualizations and traffic reports to tell users what the best time of each day will be to cross the US-Mexico border via passenger car, commercial vehicle, or as a pedestrian.

 

The app is available in both the App store for apple and the Google Marketplace for Android.

 

This tool will quickly become indispensable to the thousands of people traversing the US-Mexico border daily for business as well as pleasure.

mexico-travel-insurance-required99% of our customers have nothing but fond memories of their time spent in Mexico and continue to plan future trips to our welcoming neighbor to the south.

If proper planning is made before your trip, you too will be in the 99% category. Proper planning includes purchasing a Mexico Auto Insurance policy if you will be driving while in Mexico. The policy you purchase should be from an admitted Mexico Insurance company and of course from an insurer with a solid financial rating.

We have heard from folks that had purchased very inexpensive coverage from the little stands by the border or inside of check cashing stores. Unfortunately, when an accident occurred, they had a real difficult time with having their claims paid. No-one ever answered the phone number listed on the policy and messages were not returned.

There are other instances when a simple fender bender in Mexico caused major problems with the Mexican police because the person thought that their insurance from the United States would cover them inside of Mexico. While some U.S. auto insurance policies do offer limited physical damage coverage within 15 or 20 miles from the border, none offer the Mexico liability coverage that is required by Mexican law.

And then there are the real bad horror stories from people that didn’t bother purchasing the required Mexico Insurance coverage, caused a somewhat serious accident and then found themselves in a lot of legal trouble with the Mexican authorities.

There is certainly no need to be in the 1% of people that have bad experiences in Mexico. Plan your trip well which includes Mexican Car Insurance.
