An authentic mexican holiday celebration with a local guide


Perhaps "Día de muertos" is one of the most important celebrations in the center of Mexico.

There are still some places in the country where you can see a genuine way of celebration.

The multi-day holiday (starting October 28 finishing November 2. ) focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey.

Join me in this adventure and lets visit 2 important small towns in the state of Puebla!
