About the Tour

The Day of the Dead in Mexico is a celebration full of colors, flowers and food. People prepare to remember the deceased through offerings.

Would you like to know the origin of this party? In our tour we will talk about the origin and pre-Hispanic meaning of this date , as well as the way we celebrate it today, as a result of the fusion between two cultures.

We will take a tour of one of the largest markets in the city and see how people prepare. We will visit a typical altar , we will tell you its meaning and how we currently celebrate it.

You will become an expert and you can better enjoy these parties.

Our adventure will begin with an underground trip by metro (each person will have to pay their ticket, cost 0.5 USD round trip) to the third largest market in the city, there we will see:

- Flower and fruit area

- Traditional altar

- Food Zone


If you want to know why Mexicans celebrate and make fun of death, then you will love this tour. Also if you have seen movies like "Coco" or "James Bond - Specter" you will be fascinated.

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: In front of the Palace of Fine Arts You will be able to recognize us by the divers / sweatshirts and green umbrellas. Remember we are only called Kactus.
