Itinerary

Day 131 October

In the morning we will transfer to Morelia. The beautiful city of Morelia, capital of Michoacan was founded in 1541 by Viceroy Antonio de Mendoza, and it received the name “Valladolid”. In 1828 its name was changed to Morelia, to honor Don Jose Maria Morelos y Pavon, hero of the Mexican independence movement. Morelia is known as the aristocrat among Mexico’s colonial cities. A guided tour through the Centro with a focus for all the ongoing Day of the Dead activities in hotels, government buildings and stores will give you a first insight in the rich traditions in Michoacan.

Day 21 November

Today is all about the Day of the Dead. You will have the day to further explore Morelia. We recommend you to finish today with a visit to the Candy Museum, near the historical center of Morelia, and its special Day of the Dead displays. 

Enjoy the tradition and beauty of Night of the Dead, November 1, when we start our evening tour to Lake Patzcuaro. Here you can experience the traditional way to celebrate this day as we visit the indigenous communities of Tzurumútaro, Ihuatzio and Cucuchuco. At their cemeteries you can admire outstanding decorations and altars.. As the famous island Janitzio is extremely commercialized, we then will take a ferry to the Island Pacanda. Here the traditions are still alive and even more astonishing. You will be able to emerge in the tradition that is based on the religious idea that the dead have returned from the hereafter and share with their living a moment of encounter, a family moment, full of symbols and meanings, a shuddering experience of love. Truly a memorable experience to end this day. Transfer to Hotel in Morelia in the early morning.

Day 32 November

We arrive in the early morning at the hotel (around 5am). Try to get some sleep for a few hours and enjoy the breakfast in Hotel. After that we will make our way back to Mexico City (approx. 4 hrs).
