Celebrated all over Latin America, but most famously in Mexico
, on 01 and 02 November, Día de los Muertos is a more joyful occasion than you might expect, as it’s both a remembrance of loved ones and a celebration of the eternal cycle of life and death.
One of the best places to see the celebrations are the island of Janitzio on Lake Pátzcuaro.
This year (2015) the Day of the Dead festival coincides with when Formula One takes place in Mexico City
