ROSARITO BEACH, BAJA CALIFONIA, MEXICO - While Cinco de Mayo is the Mexican event most celebrated in the U.S., Mexican Independence Day - similar to the Fourth of July in the U.S. - is the major national holiday here.
And the Rosarito Beach Hotel & Resort, Baja's largest and most famous oceanfront resort, this year offers some exceptional ways to celebrate the day in the country where it all began.
Cinco de Mayo marks an important and unlikely victory of Mexican forces over an invading French army in Puebla in1862. But the day is celebrated primarily in that Mexican state and in the U.S.
Sept. 16 marks the "cry of freedom" given by war hero Miquel Hidalgo in 1810, which launched the struggle through which Mexico become independent from Spain in 1821. That day, Dia de la Independencia, is the national holiday in Mexico.
On Sept. 14 and 15, the Rosarito Beach Hotel & Resort offers one-night stays in an oceanfront room from $94 and two-night stays from $159, tax included. Each includes two tickets for the Fiesta Mexicana show and buffet, plus two children 12 and under can stay free with parents.
Also, the night of the 14th, the highly anticipated pay-per-view super-welterweight title fight between Mexico's Canelo Alvarez and Floyd Mayweather Jr. will be shown free in the hotel's Rosa & Rita and Azteca bars.
A farmer's market will be held in the hotel gardens Sunday, Sept. 15, from noon to 5, featuring food, wine, entertainment, arts and children's activities. That day in the Salon Mexicano, singer Vicki Torres will give a concert. Price is $13.79, buffet included.
