Came specifically from Greece for this experience and it was greater than I could have ever imagined! Tradition, great buys, awesome food, fun and safe environment among friendly locals. It is a travel experience of a lifetime and should not be missed!

I would only recommend you visit Mixquic on the day of the dead. You should expect to be in a traffic jam, perhaps a couple of hours. When you get there it's like being in a very crowded country fare. They sell food and crafts...More

houses and other historical buildings such as the Casa
de la Cultural. The works of Siqueiros, Diego Rivera
and O'Gorman are in abundance and should not be missed
while exploring the area. Walk through the streets and
have a taste of the neighborhood, which can be found
