Re: Day of the Dead--Los Cabos Region
I live about 1.5 hours north of Cabo, in Los Barriles, a much smaller, less touristy town.(link to my LB page: "LOS BARRILES, BAJA SUR" - Los Barriles by ViajesdelMundo ) Here, mostly the observances are in homes and of course at the cemetery. (Nov. 1st is for departed children, the 2nd is for all others). Their parties begin on night of the 31st.
I don't know for sure, but I have never heard of there being any special public observances in Cabo either, other than a lot of family altars with the marigolds, candles, photos, favorite foods, being erected at Plaza Amelia Wilkes, on 2nd November and a prize given for the 'best'.
I am sure that there will be the cemetery happenings. Also, all the markers along the roads get cleaned up and decorated then too.
There would be the special confections and breads for sale at the appropriate tiendas, of course, along with many items of CALAVERAS and KATRINAS.
