Each year from the end of October to the beginning of November, the Mexican people remember their departed relatives. Celebrated on October 31st (Young Souls Day), November 1st (All Saints Day) and November 2nd (All Souls Day), Los Días de Muertos are some of Mexico’s most important holidays.

In this edition of Banderas Beat, Laura visits Patzcuaro, Michoacán, where the annual Day of the Dead celebrations are especially impressive. She takes us to Cucuchucho Cemetery in Tzintzuntzan for a closer look at Día de los Muertos rituals, explains some of the ancient customs that make these celebrations an incredible display of culture and tradition, and browses through the stands of arts and crafts that line the streets and plazas during Patzcuaro's annual Fall Artisan Fair.


Even the shortest of visits will open your eyes to the extraordinary number of things to see and do in Puerto Vallarta, so we've developed Banderas Beat, a monthly "INFOtainment" program that's not just for tourists - but for anyone with an interest in keeping their fingers on the pulse of the city.

Every month, Banderas News video journalist Laura Gelezunas will use her years of experience as an on-camera reporter in the U.S. along with her extensive knowledge of the Puerto Vallarta area to bring you informative and entertaining video reports covering everything from the hottest places to eat, drink and shop to information about Banderas Bay area attractions, events, and charitable organizations.

So, whether you're a first-time visitor looking for travel advice, inside tips and recommendations or a long-time resident that just wants to keep up with what's new, where it's at, and when it's happening in Puerto Vallarta - you'll find it on Banderas Beat.
