Videos of Dia de los Muertos in Chiapas: Romerillo, San Juan Chamula, San Cristóbal de las Casas

Ofrenda for Dia de los Muertos, Tenejapa, Chiapas

Dia de los Muertos in Chiapas was the topic of my last post (Nov. 12, 2013) and now you can see this celebration come to life in three different places.  The photos of the holiday are exotic and colorful, but the videos capture the essence of the celebration.  Here are clickable links to the videos I have posted on Youtube:

The first two are of Dia de los Muertos in small Mayan towns outside of the city of San Cristóbal and have the flavor of these places:

San Juan Chamula, Chiapas:

Romerillo, Chiapas:

This third video is of the holiday in an urban setting, that of the city of San Cristóbal de las Casas.

I hope you enjoy them.
