Day of the Dead Night Tour

"You only die when you've been forgotten, and I'll never forget you." This phrase from the movie Coco sums up very well how Mexicans feel the night of Día de los Muertos on November 1. Explaining it isn't even close to experiencing it, so at 4 pm we'll pick you up at your hotel in Morelia to embark on an unforgettable Day of the Dead night tour through the state of Michoacán.

First, we'll travel to the town of Tupátaro, where we'll admire the traditional Day of the Dead altars. We'll see how the living pay tribute to their deceased loved ones, honoring their photographs with candles, skulls and flowers. The next stop will take place in the nearby town of Cuanajo, where we'll also get to see a large number of these colorfully decorated altarpieces.

After a break for a snack at the street food stalls in Cuanajo, we'll make our way to Tzurumutaro to visit its pantheon. There we'll observe how friends and relatives of the dead clean the tombs, which are adorned with garlands and other decorative elements. Contrary to what we may think, the atmosphere of this special night is not one of sadness, but of joy, as the living can meet their dead again in a most festive evening with music and dancing until dawn.

We'll continue our Day of the Dead night tour of Michoacán at the Ucasanastacua pier, where we'll take a boat to the island of Pacanda. Here, we'll have the opportunity to witness various rituals and ceremonies of the night of the dead, traditions that date back to pre-colonial times.

At the end of the excursion, we'll return by boat to the Ucasanastacua dock and, from there, we'll take you back to your hotel in Morelia, arriving around 4 am.
