Turista Libre: Dia de los Muertos
Visit Puerta Blanca, Tijuana's oldest cemetery and the resting place of its unofficial folk saint, Juan Soldado, where an urban legend historian will be on hand to tell guests Soldado's controversial tale. Afterward, a little sugar skull shopping and a 101 on Day of the Dead altars at Mercado Hidalgo, followed by mole pizza at El Taller. Then, a nightcap at one of downtown's many surreal dives forgotten by time.
Cost includes roundtrip border transportation, dinner, and a beer at the bar.
