This quaint little cemetery is a good place to meditate upon:origin, meaning, morality and destiny. You learn more at a funeral than a wedding. It's in some places well tended and in others totally neglected. It's quaint and artsy all the way through. Enjoy a...More

Coming from the United States, I don’t expect a cemetery to be filled with flowering trees, birdsong, colorful tributes, and music. I love the celebration of life, both past and present, that we were privileged to see.

My first trip to Mexican cemetery and worth the trip. Very colorful grave decorations and huge variety of markers. I was shocked and disappointed by how much trash was scattered about. Great for photos, lots of trees and flowers.
