Sleddog, sorry you got flack for that, can't imagine why someone would have a problem with it....
Maria and I definitely intend to go into town on either or both days to see the shrines and the events set up by the town. We visited Xcaret the last time we were in Mexico, and were amazed by the representations of shrines from all over the region. We've looked up a bit of info online, and most people say just head into town, and to the city hall as well. Others suggest visiting a local cemetery to observe shrines set up by the family of the local citizens who have died.Honestly, I'm not sure about this. Seems like it might be a bit "gawky" to me.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. :)
Lastly, I read that people sometimes bring candy for the kids in town. Kind of like trick or treating. Have you seen this at all?
Thanks a lot!
