At Palladium Travel Club we are already preparing everything to give you an unforgettable night in Costa Mujeres, Riviera Maya and Riviera Nayarit.

If you haven’t drink mezcal, you haven’t lived!
Mezcal is an endemic drink of Mexico, it is part of our tradition and it is undoubtedly a drink that will leave you with a great taste in your mouth. Drinks made with mezcal can be very versatile as they go well with any sweet or citrus flavour.
Such an epic night can only be accompanied with a good bottle of mezcal or tequila. Drinks representative of the country that will give you a much more complete experience of the 16th of September. Remember that as a member of Palladium Travel Club you can use your Palladium Money to buy the bottle you like the most and continue celebrating in a very Mexican way.
Our recommendation for the perfect combination of a traditional and elegant experience is the Don Julio tequila reposado with a smooth taste and a welcoming aroma, enjoy it on the rocks or in a refreshing cocktail. If you prefer something more artisanal, the Espadin Ojo de Tigre mezcal is your best choice, with a delicate sweet and traditional flavour that will make your night a moment to remember. Ask our staff about the availability of labels and be fascinated by the authentic Mexican flavour.
Here are our two favourite cocktails for a Mexican evening:
Viva la Margarita!
A powerful but very tasty and refreshing tequila-based cocktail. It’s perfect with nachos, tacos or guacamole and is one of the most popular cocktails in the country. Order it with Tequila reposado, triple sec, fresh lime juice and a salt-frosted glass.
Long live the red fruit mezcal!
A sweet and delicate drink to start a festive evening. Our main ingredient is the authentic mezcal with red fruits, mineral water and lemon soda, don’t hesitate to order it!
What is the celebration?
In the early morning of September 16, 1810, in the town of Dolores, today Guanajuato, the priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla launched the “Grito de Dolores”, ringing the church bell to gather the people and call for the end of the viceregal government and the beginning of the Mexican Independence. For a long time, the Mexican people took up arms to fight for their independence, reaching its culmination on September 27th, 1821.
In addition to the historical value of the date, it is also a day of celebration. Mexican Night, as it is well known, is the perfect time to get together with friends and family. One of the favourite parts of this date are the seasonal dishes, never missing the typical pozole, the authentic tostadas, the traditional chiles en nogada or the incomparable tacos. Always accompanied by a good tequila or mezcal and, for those who prefer non-alcoholic drinks, refreshing aguas de jamaica, horchata or tamarind.
The traditional fiesta patria begins at 23:00 on 15 September with the “grito” ceremony, where the president of Mexico, the governors and municipal presidents gather in the main squares to give the famous shout between bells and end with a “Long live Mexico”. This is the signal to start our celebrations.
In the month of September, all the cities are filled with green, white and red. The colours of the Mexican flag. It is a unique moment that you can enjoy during your stay in the Caribbean or the Pacific, you will be fascinated by the typical dances of the country, the mariachis and all the Mexican folklore.
In our Resorts you can be part of this celebration and have a great night out. Get into the culture of the country for a night and get to know why the Mexican fiesta is one of the best festivities of the year.
