Walking Tour in Oaxaca during Day of the Dead

Stroll through the charming streets of Oaxaca, absorb the unique landscape as we visit the cultural highlights of the city decked out in flowers, the avenues & archways adorned with colorful offerings. As the go to spot for traditional arts, crafts & gastronomy in the country, Oaxaca comes alive like no other place on the Dia de Muertos, the streets filled with people, businesses putting on special events and decorations spreading out in every direction, creating a wonderful atmosphere and an exceptional celebration of life.

Starting in the "Plaza Cruz de Piedra", we walk into the living history and customs of the city and its inhabitants, continuing to the famous Santo Domingo Plaza, where you will find the church & ex-convent beautifully decked out for the occasion. The procession of people will lead us on to the cemetery where a feast for the eyes and the senses is guaranteed. Thousands of offerings and Altars transform this place of rest into one of joy, celebrating the life of the deceased in the belief that on this day our loved ones return for a visit, while the living celebrate by hosting a fiesta in their honor.

 

Our tour continues away from the larger crowds to the colorful neighborhood of Jalatlaco, where we witness a typical neighborhood, where they build altars and lay out offerings. The joyous atmosphere is contagious, sometimes reminiscent of a street party, but also reminding us of the transient nature of life and most of all, to be grateful for the time we have and treasure those we love. We finish the evening with a delicious dinner in an exclusive setting.
