Day of The Dead Night Tour

The Day of the Dead in Mexico City is a unique experience. On this night tour, you'll participate in one of the most popular and anticipated holidays of the year in Mexico.

At 5 pm, we'll meet you on Calle Valentín Gómez Farías (San Rafael, Cuauhtémoc in Mexico City and set off for the southern part of the capital. We'll head to the popular Xochimilco district, where we'll board a traditional boat called a trajinera. Let's go!

As we sail through Xochimilco's canals, we'll hear lots of stories about the Day of the Dead in Mexico City. You'll see that this tradition is a festive night full of colour, mysticism and, above all, plenty of mystery. We'll discuss the iconic figure of La Catrina, among other intriguing details...

During our cruise along the canal, you'll also enjoy a delicious buffet dinner on board. Our dinner menu will include various local specialities such as mole sauce, Day of the Dead bread, quesadillas and chapulines (a popular grasshopper delicacy). 

After our trajinera boat ride in Xochimilco's canals, we'll take you back to the meeting point in Mexico City 5 hours after pickup.
