Coming to Mexico City for the season of Día de Muertos, aka Day of the Dead, is a pretty magical experience. Traditionally, Day of the Dead is associated with the dates of October 31 through November 2, but there are lots of events and things to do in Mexico City in the days leading up to it as well. For example, you can try a cooking class to learn how to make pan de muerto, or you can visit Casa Azul, the home of Frida Kahlo, to see the detailed ofrenda they put out for her. And you’ll find beautiful marigolds, also called cempazuchitl flowers, everywhere you go in the city.
