Puebla and Transylvania are recommended places to visit during Day of the Dead
Mundo Joven, a youth tourism organization focused on promoting cultural exchange through travel, says travelers (people who are not afraid of the unknown and venture in search of their own destiny) enjoy thematic trips.
Mundo Joven explains that these trips give the opportunity to interact with travelers with similar interests to theirs.
It specifies that talking about domestic destinations, one that is very Traveler, because it is also not as well known by tourists, is Chignahuapan, Puebla, which is close to Mexico City.
The tourism organization indicates that the Festival of Light and Life takes place there, at dusk, when the Avenue Las Almas is lit with torches from the church of the main square to the river, and initiates “the parade of the torches”.
Visitors and locals walk with candles and torches to the edge of the lagoon that serves as a stage for the prehispanic ritual.
For an international destination, Mundo Joven states that the option is Transylvania, where you can visit the castle ruins of Poenari Dracula, and finally reach the city of Hunedoara, where a costume party in the haunted castle Hunyad is performed.
