We also take pride in organizing corporate events and incentive trips, highlighting cultural diversity and traditions. Recently, we had the pleasure of hosting a colorful, FUN and vibrant Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) event.
Many Mexican citizens consider The Day of the Dead their favorite holiday, and those fortunate enough to see the celebrations first-hand have no problem understanding why. Public celebrations in Mexico are arguably the most vibrant on the planet, with spectacular festivals and feasts throughout the country from the tiniest villages to the streets of Mexico City. Perhaps the heart of this holiday lies in Central Mexico’s Oaxaca, although all parts of the country offer uniquely beautiful festivities. Mexican citizens welcome respectful visitors to all of their celebrations. As in other traditional Day of the Dead celebrations, elaborate altars are decorated with bread as the centerpiece, and feasting is enjoyed by all. It’s important to note that the holiday isn’t about remembrance but rather reconnecting and celebrating with the spirits of the dead.
Day of the Dead festivities are held from Oct. 31 to Nov. 2, giving you plenty of time to visit remote villages as well as join in on celebrations in Oaxaca, Mexico City, Guanajuato, Michoacán, or other parts of the country.
