  1. For those who wish to experience Day of the Dead, also known as “Noche de Muertos”, Tia Stephanie Tours offers an annual, off the tourist path, opportunity to experience this most significant observance in Mexico. In the state of Michoacan, we visit Colonial Morelia, the high Purepecha Plateau and the lakeshore communities of Patzcuaro. We see the unfolding of preparations, as well as experience the evening vigil in small communities. Maria Andrade has accompanied some of our journeys and her books offer a wonderful insight into the meaning of Day of the Dead in Mexico.
