If you are not familiar with the Day of the Dead (El dia de los Muertos ) customs it may seem very similar to Halloween. Many of the symbols and colors are the same, however the meaning and origin are very different. Halloween customs are about scaring people and death is a fearful thing, Day of the Dead celebrates the memories of the dead, but making alters with their photos and favorite things. Thus you might see an alter with a photo of someone and their favorite food or beverages. Typical details of the Dia de Los Muertos alters are: Marigolds, Pan de Muertos (Bread), candles, skulls made of sugar rice and beans.
In Puerto Vallarta some of the festivities include the street party infront of the main Mercado (Market) with a Catrina contest of life size Catrinas, Charos, live music, and food. On Friday October 31st there is a Catrina festival along Basilio Badillo Street in the heart of the Romantic Zone also known as Los Muertos after the popular nearby beach by that name.
