Día de la Santa Cruz (Day of the Holy Cross)

May 3

Día de la Santa Cruz (Day of the Holy Cross) is celebrated nationwide and dates back to colonial times. It is also known as the “Feast of Masons” or “Brickmason’s Day.”

Construction workers decorate crosses with flowers and place them on buildings under construction, and have picnics at the site, followed by fireworks.

Here in Jaltemba Bay, there is usually a procession at the Cruz del Calvarioque es Bendito in Guayabitos (see our Map of Guayabitos for exact location) to say thank you to all of the albañiles (masons), construction workers, electricians and plumbers in town.
