Day of the Dead Celebration in the Tzintzuntzan Convento .... epic!! Everything was lit up with candles and there was a huge street market outside with wonderful food and handcrafts. Nice to see the mix of the true mestizo tradition of Day of the Dead!

We visited the convent as part of the birthdate celebration of a dear friend. The convent is well maintained and very interesting, it is definitely a good idea to hire a guide, you will enjoy a wonderful place just a few minutes from Patzcuaro
