Arrive at any time. Get to know your group tonight on the rooftop of a mezcaleria. Sip some mezcal before heading to Txalaparta to dance the night away ?? sounds like the perfect way to kick off your adventure with your fellow travellers. Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a festival that runs from October 31 to November 2 to celebrate and remember loved ones who have deceased. Although the festival is to honour those who have passed on, it is a festive and upbeat celebration rather than somber gathering. Families cook feasts and offer them by the graves of those who have passed to encourage them to come back and join in on the festivities. Oaxaca is one of the main hubs of celebrations for Day of the Dead – the cemetery vigils and street parades make this an experience not to miss!
