A Small Mexican Town with a Whole Lotta Ghosts

smaIn San Miguel de Allende, a small artist colony in Guanajuato, Mexico, the locals celebrate Halloween a little differently. You won’t find any slutty nurses around here. Instead, the Dia de los Muertos is a majestic ode to the dead, an ancient ritual where the pastel-colored town of old churches becomes lush with flowers, art, and costumes to celebrate Halloween. On November 1, locals will share food and visit cemeteries to get in touch with lost souls.

It’s one of the world’s great cities at their creative peak, and one of the best windows into a peaceful region of modern day Mexico.
