Mexico City, Puebla & Oaxaca
The Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and by people of Mexican ancestry living outside the country; it focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray and remember those who have died, supporting their spiritual journey. In 2008, the tradition was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
The origins of this holiday can be traced to indigenous observances dating back hundreds of years and to an Aztec festival dedicated to the goddess Mictecacihuatl.
Visiting Mexico City during the Day of the Dead Festivities is a surreal, rare and unique experience you can't miss and you will never forget. You will witness the rituals used to celebrate these important dates, all of them full of color and tradition.
