OCTOBER: Noche de los Muertos

Hope you have your costume ready — trust me, locals have been planning for months — because the Noche de los Muertos party at Alys Beach is one of the most surreal and larger-than-life costume parties you’ll ever witness.

This annual adults-only ‘Night of the Dead’ revival is an eye-popping party full of unexpected costumes, world-class DJs, and macabre fun, and it’s always one of the hottest tickets of the year.

The event is held at Alys Beach’s famous Caliza, a pool and restaurant lifted straight from the pages of Architectural Digest. Beautiful architecture, beautiful people, outrageous costumes, lively libations… it’s a frightening proposition certainly worth planning your beach vacation around!

There’s always a world-class DJ on hand, and costumes are absolutely required. There’s also a big cash prize for Best Costume.

Alys Beach is a unique New Urbanist community that combines stunning architecture with the gracious character of courtyard living. Guests can tailor their vacation to include the finest culinary talents in the region, distinctive shopping choices, outdoor activities on an exclusive beach, winding nature trails, and a state of the art wellness center.
