In honor of Halloween, I wanted to share some pics from Mexico City. Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is actually on November 2nd and in Mexico it’s more a celebration than a day of mourning. Mexico City Dia de los Muertos decorations rival those of New York at Christmas time – it really has to be seen to be believed. Skeletons and skulls aren’t at all morbid in Mexico- they’re seen partying, playing guitars, dancing, and, well, you’ll see below.
Dia de los Muertos
For an introduction start at Dulceria de Celaya, the classic candy shop on avenida Cinco de Mayo. The shop’s been around since 1874 and counted Frida Kahlo among its fans. Try the coconut stuffed limes- Frida’s fave.
Hope you enjoyed this stroll down Death’s Lane. If you’re curious about what else Mexico City has to offer, check out my Traveling Mom post about our visit. Mexico City really is the perfect 4 day weekend, and if you can do it in October, you’ll get the best of both worlds.
