PAPANTLA FLYERS

The Danza de los Voladores (Dance of the Flyers), is an ancient Mesoamerican ceremony/ritual still performed nowadays, albeit in modified form. 

The ceremony begins as five men adorned with feathers, mirrors, flowers, and intricate symbols approach the pole and climb it. At the top, one man takes his spot in the middle of the other four, standing on a platform as he plays a flute, stomps his feet, spins and dances. 

The ceremony was named an Intangible cultural heritage by Unesco in order to help the ritual survive and thrive in the modern world.

In Puerto Vallarta we are honored to witness this ritual every day promptly at 6:00 pm on the Malecon, accompanied by extraordinary sunsets.
