We are fortunate to have the vibrant celebration of Dia de los Muertos just 15 minutes away in Todos Santos, BCS. Avoid the bustling crowds of Cabo for an authentic experience in the plaza of our local Pueblo Magico.
Each year, the town of Todos Santos puts together an itinerary of activities and displays to honor the dead during this celebration. The schedule hasn't been announced yet, but it has historically included a car show, photography contest, dance performances, and of course the parade of Catrinas! Women, men, children, and even dogs, get decked out in their best skeleton and walk through the town plaza to be admired.
The festival is rich with tradition. Families build colorful altars to honor deceased relatives and pets. Each day of the holiday is significant. October 27 honors deceased pets. October 28 acknowledges people who died in accidents of tragic ways. October 29 recognizes those who died by drowning. October 30 and 31 honor those who have been forgotten, have no family, and stillborn children. Finally, November 1 is for children and November 2 honors adults.
If you plan to visit the area during Dia de los Muertos, make your plans early as it attracts international travelers and Mexican families from all over.
