The only guide you'll ever need for Día de Muertos

Día de Muertos is the perfect time to immerse yourself in Mexican culture and the Spanish language with our events happening this month.

There's no doubt Día de Muertos is one of the most special days there is in Mexico. While it's celebrated in most of Latin America, as my neighbor from Paraguay says, "¡México es lo máximo!" ("Mexico is the most awesome!") Día de Muertos is steeped in traditions from the Aztecs honoring their dead. But it also includes more recent creative obras (artistic works) from Mexican artists in the 19th and 20th centuries, like the catrinas and alejibres. (See the gif below from Disney's Coco for an example of both).

Come with us and find out why this holiday is so incredibly special by...⁠ ⁠ 🏵️ making a nicho (shadowbox) honoring your loved one⁠

🏵️ creating your own lovely corona de flores (flower crown)⁠ to wear

🏵️ taking a fantastic Día de Muertos tour of Tijuana ⁠
