Day of the Dead Tour
From October 23 to November 3, 2017 we participate in Oaxaca's traditional Day of the Dead, when the spirits of the departed come to visit, welcomed by their families in homes decorated with gorgeous altars, in cemeteries glowing with flowers and candles, and in the hearts of all those who can appreciate the spiritual and cultural strength of communities with ancient traditions and values. This most Mexican of holidays is hard to experience without the expertise and friends we are able to introduce you to, since Day of the Dead celebrations aren't largely public spectacles. We'll also visit ruins, folk art villages, indigenous markets and more.
$2,750 US per person, double occupancy. Includes hotel and three meals a day, and all excursions, guide service, admissions and transportation within Oaxaca. Email oaxaca@ casa-colonial.com for an itinerary.
June 4-10, 2017 six nights 5 days
