Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a well-known Mexican holiday, most recognized for its decorated skulls, Catrinas and colourful decorations. Every November 1st and 2nd, it is believed those that have passed away are allowed to come back and visit their loved ones. Ofrendas or altars are often set up by families, decorating the table with candles, tokens of memories, photos, food, drinks, etc. Join the party as people will take to the streets wearing face paint and skeleton costumes, dancing to commemorate and welcome back those they have lost.
