Magical Places to Visit in Mexico for Day of the Dead

Magical Places to Visit in Mexico for Day of the Dead

Day of the Dead is a time to reflect on those we've lost and want to remember. More importantly, it's a time for us to celebrate their lives. In anticipation of the Mexican holiday, we gathered a few Instagram photos for the best places to visit for the event (Nov. 1-2), according to GeoMexico.com

The Day of the Dead celebration holds great significance in the life of Mexico’s indigenous communities. The fusion of pre-Hispanic religious rites and Catholic feasts brings together two universes, one marked by indigenous belief systems, the other by worldviews introduced by the Europeans in the sixteenth century.
