Up to 200 people are expected to attend the Dia Los Muertos festivities at the resort. With vaccinations on the rise, the pandemic-friendly outdoor environment is ideal for the celebration. Reservations are requested but walk-in guests are welcome.

Dia Los Muertos is a Mexican holiday that brings family and friends together on Nov 1-2 to celebrate those who have died. Cantina, the only beachfront Mexican restaurant in the Miami area, will kick off the holiday with a Mexican-inspired street festival from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, (Oct. 29).

“When you think of oceanfront (Mexican) restaurants ... Cantina Beach really is the only beachfront restaurant for Mexicans in Miami,” said Tatiana Lora, public relations director for the Ritz Carlton. “That, along with the food and the ambiance, makes Cantina Beach a really good time to celebrate the holidays.”
