We had a FUN & fabulous time with all the festivities happening for Día de Muertos! 😊

  • We don’t usually do tours but this one was great! The company is A Closer Look Tours. And our guide Eric has a B & B in Guanajuato plus does custom trips. He treated us to a Mezcal tasting and served us lunch there too!

  • We flew into Guadalajara and out of Mexico City from Tijuana – as that was the only way to fly non-stop – which saved us time and money. We opted for a tour and fortunately we were a small group of 14.
  • Traveling by bus we visited Tequila, Morelia, Pátzcuaro, Quiroga, Tzintzuntzan, Guanajato, San Miguel de Allende, Dolores Hidalgo, Queretaro, Taxco, Cuernavaca, Xochimilco, and Mexico City.
  • And the highlight was being able to experience Día de Muertos! The Day of the Dead—is a holiday celebrated on November 1st & 2nd that honors the dead with festivals and lively celebrations.

FUN-fact – Assured that the dead would be insulted by mourning or sadness, Día de los Muertos celebrates the lives of the deceased with food, drink, parties, and activities the dead enjoyed in life.
