The Day of the Dead, November 2, is a national holiday in Mexico and is promoted widely as an effort to preserve indigenous traditions as well as to encourage tourism. Día de los Muertos is also widely observed and celebrated throughout the United States. Nowhere, however, in Mexico or in the United States, is the celebration more important, more authentic, more meaningful and moving, and more colorful than in Oaxaca. The many years of experience of Tierra del Sol in Oaxaca gives you a unique opportunity to share every aspect of the Día de los Muertos with the marvelous people of Oaxaca and learn why it is a celebration of life as well as a recognition and honoring of the dead.
