Semana Santa (Holy Week) is an important holiday in Mexico. It begins on the Sunday before Easter (Palm Sunday or Domingo de Ramos) and continues through Easter Sunday. The dates of Semana Santa vary from year to year. Students and some workers also have the following week off, so tourist attractions and beaches tend to be crowded for the full two weeks.

These are the dates of Holy Week from 2014 to 2018:

  • 2014 - April 14 to 20
  • 2015 - March 30 to April 5
  • 2016 - March 21 to 27
  • 2017 - April 10 to 16
  • 2018 - March 26 to April 1
