Day of the Dead Tour: San Miguel De Allende, Mexico Oct 29th - November 5th, 2022  
$3190 pp

8 Adventurous days / 7 Luxurious nights

Located in the highlands of central Mexico, far away from the coastline many of us imagine when we picture the country, is a cobblestone-lined, artist-haven jewel of a city—San Miguel de Allende. With its hot-but-not-scorching climate, Spanish Colonial architecture, steep hills, elegant buildings, and colorful façades in a palette of golden yellows and ruby hues, it’s a storybook-like setting.   Conde Nast Traveler

Dia De Los Muertos
(Day of the Dead)

Dia De Los Muertos is one of the world’s most misunderstood holidays. Because it’s celebrated within range of Halloween, and features an assortment of macabre imagery and costumes, some people assume it’s just “Mexican Halloween”.  It’s much more than that!

 

Originally a harvest celebration for the Aztecs, what would become the Day of the Dead in Mexico was originally celebrated around the end of summer - structured as it was around the farming season. This is much like Halloween, which is derived from pagan celebrations that also celebrated the change of the seasons. Spanish conquistadors bringing Catholic influence to Latin America combined the celebration with the Catholic traditions of All Saints’ and All Souls’ Day – a two day structure occurring on November 1st & 2nd each year.

FUN FACTS

Day of the Dead occupies the same two days on the calendar year, but the focus is different. On the first day, families remember children who have died, and on the second, the adults. The central belief is that the spirits of loved ones can join the living on those days and commune with them, and the celebration is geared towards that idea: People leave toys and Calaveras (the iconic skull — made from sugar — that inspires the makeup and look of the holiday) for children, and for adults they leave food, favorite possessions and alcohol at elaborate homemade altars (called ofrendas, more on these soon!!).

 

Celebrations can also include live music, dancing and parades from residences to graveyards, where family members will gather around their loved ones’ graves. Mexico City has never had a parade to celebrate Dia De Los Muertos, but held their first in 2016, inspired by, of all things, the recent James Bond movie Spectre (yes, really).

ACCOMMODATION:

You’ll stay in the very center of San Miguel De Allende – the ‘Centro Historico’.  This beautiful downtown area is filled with amazing art studios, world-class restaurants, shopping and architecture dating over 500 years old. Our home base for the week is a 450-year-old former Hacienda, a mere 1/4 mile (5-minute walk) from the Jardin a tree-lined space and ad hoc epicenter for the town.

Our Hotel: Hacienda El Santuario Hotel Boutique!

Housed within a 450-year-old former hacienda, our exclusive hotel is located in the Historic Center of San Miguel de Allende, a few blocks from the ‘Jardin’. Interior patios decorated in award-winning artwork, fresh and peaceful gardens, and shared/private terraces overlooking the Parish of San Miguel Arcángel and the city.  The hacienda operates on a philosophy of sustainability  – much of the flowers, greens, and herbs are grown on their rooftop garden.  High thread count linens, L’Ocictane products and an ambiance of a time gone by.  Simply wonderful!
