Day of the Dead — Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Day of the Dead Tour Highlights

  • Celebrate the lives of your deceased ancestors and remember the good times you cherished with them. The Day of the Dead observes death as a natural part of life and reminiscing on the memories of loved ones.
  • Witness the fascinating traditions of the festival come to life during the Day of the Dead parade. Catch glimpses of enormous skeleton puppets, dancers in vibrant costumes, and creative altars during one of the newer events of the holiday.
  • Take part in crafting beautiful altars with special offerings such as candles and personal belongings. Learn about the local customs of preparing extravagant altars at the gravesite of deceased loved ones.
  • Dress the part for the celebration by having your face painted and wearing a traditional costume during your Day of the Dead tour. Outfits typically entail bright colors and a floral crown for women, and a charro suit and top hat for men.
  • Visit the lively outdoor markets where you can purchase delicious treats, authentic sugar skulls, and lots of exquisite decorations for altars.
  • Enjoy a helping of Pan de Muerto, bread of the dead and taste the sweet culinary flavors of the celebration. This sugary treat is combined with citrus flavors, cinnamon, and is served with a soothing cup of hot chocolate.
  • Wander through the vibrant streets of many charming towns in Mexico and witness the beautiful decorations lining every corner. Everywhere from individual homes to public buildings have mesmerizing visual displays to admire.
  • Join a graveside vigil to experience one of the most enchanting traditions of the holiday. Include an excursion to a community that still practices the custom for a truly unique Day of the Dead vacation package.

 

Day of the Dead Travel Tips

  • If you decide to partake in the face-painting tradition of the festival, make sure you bring a cloth you do not mind discarding in the trash.
  • Do not wear a scary or offensive costume during your Day of the Dead tour. This is a sacred celebration to honor the passing of loved ones and wearing an inappropriate costume is extremely disrespectful.
  • Visit some of the smaller towns for a more intimate experience during your trip to Mexico. This will allow you to gain a more personal understanding of what the holiday means to the local communities.
  • Do not become intoxicated during the festivities as it will be perceived as offensive to the people honoring their loved ones.
  • Learn the basics of Spanish for an easier time communicating with the locals.
