Milpa Alta-Mixquic | Dia de Muertos | Day of the Dead | Nov. 2nd. 2016


Every November in Mexico City and around the country, people decorate their local cemeteries and prepare the tombs for the arrival of their beloved ones coming to visit from the eternal world. They arrange their tombstones with flowers, food and incense in order to welcome them and celebrate their visit.

Welcome to our Dia de Muertos / Day of the Death Tour – Fourth Edition 

We will visit a couple of small towns on the outskirts of Mexico City around Milpa Alta area to see their local altars, traditions and decoration. In the afternoon we will watch the alumbrada or “illuminated”, the tradition enjoyed by local residents where they light thousands of candles in cemeteries in order to illuminate the arrival of the souls.
