In Todos Santos we will be celebrating the Dead from November 1 to November 4, the way it has been done for centuries.

The people of Mexico had a cult to the dead during the time of the harvests, which was modified by the Catholic missionaries, mixing pre-Hispanic and Christian beliefs, resulting in the idea that the "little dead" - the children - returned to the land the first day and adults the next day.

The natives believed that the dead lived in Mictlán and had forgotten many things and to remind them of the way home, their families made roads of cempazúchitl flowers and used the aroma of copal to guide them. The offerings had food and drinks that the dead liked, to withstand hunger until next year.

That is why the Christians of Mexico, in addition to prayers, pay homage to their dead and thank God for the good they did in this land.

Todos Santos, recognized as a Magical Town, will be a place where you can experience these magical events. Our population is an abundant oasis in the middle of the desert, emerging as the center where art, culture and tradition converge. Its streets are a gift from the colonial era. Embellished by art galleries with unique pieces, the town that once witnessed the beginnings of painters, sculptors and poets, now offers a relaxing place for the development of world-renowned artists.

Todos Santos has set out to preserve All Saints' Day in honor of all the saints and children of heaven, as well as the Day of the Dead, promoting it among the local population and its visitors to celebrate it annually. This will preserve traditions and artistic activity for the benefit of the community.

Our visitors can enjoy its many hotels, restaurants, artisans and boutiques, strolling through the historic center, admiring the altars and participating in the parade of the "Catrinas" - female personifications of death -; walking next to historical figures who are telling their stories, at the same time to taste artisanal bread and sugar "calaveritas". These activities will be complemented with cultural, artistic and recreational events to enrich the experience of each participant.
