Every November in Mexico City and around the country, people decorate their local cemeteries and prepare their relatives graves for the arrival of their beloved ones coming to celebrate from the eternal world. They arrange their tombstones with flowers, food, and incense in order to welcome them and enjoy their visit.
Welcome to our Dia de Muertos / Day of the Death Tour – Seventh Edition
We are happy to offer the only comprehensive and special day tour available in Mexico City for the Milpa Alta – Mixquic area. This is our sixth edition and for this, we will visit a few rural towns on the outskirts of Mexico City to see how the locals enjoy and experience this traditional day around the town. We will experience an authentic generational celebration that has been taken since pre-hispanic times.
We will start the day in the first town by visiting the local cemetery where we will walk around families preparing their relatives graves, we will see children running around asking for candy and mothers and daughters carefully placing flowers and candles on their relatives’ graves. We will end the visit to this town by enjoying a really delicious Mexican lunch in a local restaurant. In the afternoon we will visit another cemetery with amazing decorated graves and will end the night watching 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.
Our tour includes private transportation, lunch and drinks at a local and delicious place, and a street food snack in the evening. The tour will be held only on November 2nd. It will start at 10:00 am and will end around 9-10 pm (arriving at Mex City an hour-ish after departing). Drop off will be at Parque Mexico in Colonia Condesa, there is a safe taxi station where you can take your taxi or Uber to your place (cost of taxi not included). We will have other surprises as well, we guarantee a lot of fun!
