Dia de los Muertos

What to expect Parades throughout the streets, sugar skulls, rituals at graveyards trying to contact relatives. Pan de Muerto (bread of the dead) It is a very strange time as a tourist in Mexico because the Mexicans will tell you they contacted someone who has passed away. But the most beautiful thing is if anyone did see a ghost they would not be scared because this is what they want.
