What you'll do

ATTENTION: This is an IN DOORS experience. For health and safety issues because Covid-19, the Mexican government has decided to cancel all outdoor activities related to the Day of the Dead holiday. We are offering just our PERSONAL experience, it is what we do as a family year after year in our house. Our intention is to be able to offer you a little of this experience despite the adverse conditions.
The experience will take place in the house where we have lived for more than 25 years, we will show you our family and traditional altar; We will explain the history and what it means, its symbolism, its importance.
Then we will offer you a painting workshop with clay figures in the shape of little skulls so that you can take home a nice souvenir.
We will also offer you a traditional food of the place depending on the time you make the reservation (breakfast, lunch or snack).
To finish, we will only offer a brief tour in the vicinity of the town church to explain about the history and tradition (we refrain from ensuring that there will be some type of decoration).
We are pleased to ensure that people who have known us in other experiences have found in us affection for Mexican culture and tradition.
