DiA de los muertos
Oct 29-Nov 3, 2019
$2,895 ($1,000 deposit to reserve)
Celebrate the culture of Oaxaca by visiting Mexico's cultural center for one of the most important celebrations of the year: Day of the Dead.
We will romp (respectfully!) through decorated graveyards, bear witness and dance alongside the parades of "dead", drink plenty of Mezcal while pouring some extra in honor of any loved ones we are missing. The parade isn’t the only attraction, of course.
Throughout the trip, we’ll visit small towns whose inhabitants create artisanal rugs and pottery. We’ll tour the ancient ruins of Monte Alban. And best of all, we’ll visit the town where Mezcal comes from, and maybe, just maybe, sample those wares, too.
