Celebrate Dia de los Muertos in Mexico City

Standard DreamTrip
Experience world-famous Dia de los Muertos festivities at your own pace with a range of fun, self-guided activities in Mexico City — check out life-affirming parades, special cemetery vigils, colorful altars & much more. Book by August 21, 2021. 

About Your Trip

Play, unwind, soak up local culture or explore your surroundings to your heart’s content. The choice of entertainment is all yours on this leisurely getaway in Mexico’s electrifying capital city. Just be sure to bring your sense of wonder — and your camera. You’ll want to capture every moment of the action when you head out from the hotel on your own to personalize your very own Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) experience.

There are many places and ways to observe this 3-day festival, so you’re sure to find something amazing to do and see at any time of the day or night, starting at midnight on October 31. That’s when it’s believed that the border between the spirit world and the physical world dissolves, allowing the spirits of infants and children to rejoin their families for 24 hours — a period known as Dia de los Angelitos, Day of the Little Angels. (The spirits of adults can do the same starting at midnight on November 1 through to the end of November 2, the official Day of the Dead.)

Far from somber or scary, the rituals practiced during the festival are all about remembering, honoring and welcoming these souls in a totally joyous way. To attract the spirits, families decorate altars (ofrendas) with photographs of the deceased, their loved ones’ favorite food and drink, candles, traditional yellow marigolds, trinkets of all kinds and sweets and toys for children. There’s an air of both celebration and reflection on life and death, with stories, prayer and laughter ringing through the night.

Such dedications can be found throughout the city — including in family homes and at zocalo, the main public square — but the best place to get a glimpse into this unique cultural practice is at a local cemetery. Consider a visit to the cemetery in San Andres Mixquic just before sunset and plan to stay a few hours to take in the wonderful rituals and traditions.

The following day is all about raucous parades! Though it’s only a few years old, the main downtown parade has become a major event. Check it out for yourself — this boisterous procession typically starts at Estrela de Luz, a short walk from your hotel in Chapultepec park. Get there early for optimal viewing and you’ll be rewarded with up-close sights of massive puppets, dancers and thousands of people decked out as “La Calavera Catrina” figures as the parade rolls by. Why not join all the fun and get your face painted with a calavera, the smiling skeleton depiction that’s come to symbolize the event? You’re sure to feel like a local!

What we love:
• Day of the Dead is so central to Mexico’s identity that these practices celebrating the return of the souls of loved ones have been listed as one of UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritages.
• The cemetery in San Andres Mixquic is believed to be the inspiration for some of the settings in the animated Disney® film Coco.
