Experience Day of the Dead at Night in Mixquic
Day of the Dead at Night
After you visit San Pedtro Atocpan and San Antonio Tecomitl on the tour with Pata de Perro DF on 2nd November.
You will tour the cemetery of the third town at night on the Day of the Dead. And, it's San Andres in Mixquic, Milpa Alta Mexico.
The Church and Cemetery of San Andres
At the church, Parroquia de San Andrés Apóstol, you can walk around the cemetery.
The graves are decorated, with offerings like flowers. And, candles are lit.
Expect to find it very crowded.
The doors of the church are open. You can look in. And, you'll see the gold within and on the roof entrance.
You can walk further around to where there used to be a monastery.
There, you will find relics from the past and human bones used in the Day of the Dead celebrations.

Next, you will walk into the town. And, you can eat at restaurants and shop at stalls along the road.
In the middle, you'll find a tall female skeleton, La Catrina, and a tall male skeleton. They are lit up at night, so they are easy to find.
Then, you can have a Mexican meal at a small restaurant. In Mexico, you'll have to try the thick mango juice and the corn quesadillas.
And, I thought, the Cactus Juice was similar in taste to orange juice.

Hope you get to visit for the Day of the Dead, Cindy
This would be such an incredible experience! The church sounds gorgeous!
Thank you Chantelle. Yes, the church is so different on the outside, that you don’t expect the inside to be like that.
What a cool experience…such an intriguing tradition and celebration. Great photos!
Thank you kmf. Yes, it’s an unique experience at the Day of the Dead
It would be great to experience this at night. So cool to see the lights as it adds a different effect on the town.
Thank you Missy. Yes, at night it’s a different experience.
Day of the Dead would be such an interesting experience! Cactus juice sounds like an interesting taste adventure, as well!
Thank you Melissa. Hope you get to taste Cactus Juice, too.
This celebration would be super cool to attend in Mexico. I really liked the movie CoCo that showed all the parties and such so I wonder if it really is the same.
Hope you get to visit them, Leeanne. Yes I wonder too. There’s all different ways that they celebrate Day of the Dead. Some of the ways I saw was decorating the graves and gathering there, dressing up, dressing up as La Catrina, Mass being held at church, altars in churches, workplaces, and homes, street festivals, street stalls selling sugar skulls, etc. and restaurants open, and el Mariachi singing in the cemeteries.
I would love to see day of the dead! I feel like a know so much more about it because of Cocoa! haha but seriously it would be amazing!
Hope you get to experience the Day of the Dead, Lisa. I love COCO.
Interesting information. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you Tricia. You’re welcome
Looks like a lot of fun! It reminds me of Disney’s COCO.
Yes, it was an experience. Yes, I loved COCO.
This really makes me want to go to Mexico! I haven’t been yet, but I hope to someday. It looks like such a beautiful place to explore. And I would love the food!
Cool, hope you get to visit Mexico, Stacey. Yes, you’ll need to experience the food. I thought the Mexican food in Mexico City is different to the Mexican food in L.A. and Australia.
I would love to experience Day of the Dead in Mexico. Great night captures!

Wow – looks like an amazing experience!
Thank you Pam. Yes, it was unique.
