What you'll do
First we will pass through all the participants to their hotel or point to agree, then we will go with an offering to the pantheon of Xoxocottlán where we will visit several tombs and learn more about the history of this great tradition. Then we will go to my grandmother's house to set up an altar and have a family dinner where we can taste moles, tamales, mezcals and ancestral drinks.

The best thing I did for Dia de los Muertos! This was a beautiful experience! The food was phenomenal, they were warm and kind and the cemetery was such a unique experience! The group was a manageable size as well and it was nice to have the transportation so I didn't have to worry about any logistics myself.

The BEST way to do Dia De Los Muertos! This experience was amazing and I highly recommend it! Salma and her family were gracious hosts who invited us into their home and allowed us to experience their traditions. They were kind and friendly and the whole evening was wonderful. Salma's grandmother cooked a delicious meal that included 3 types of tamales, chicken, mole, hot chocolate, dessert and lots of mezcal. Her home was a short walk to the cemetery where we visited 3 graves of her friends and family. We also had some free time to walk around and listen to music, take pictures and dance. Salma thought of so many small details that made the experience extra special. She created bags for each of us that included a candle to light at the cemetery, flowers, a small shot glass for mezcal throughout the night, chocolate and candy and a bottle of water. She also provided snacks that included peanuts and chapulines. If you're looking for a heartfelt, organized event that immerses you in this beautiful tradition then this is the event for you!
