Day of the Dead, or Día de Muertos, is a three-day-long Mexican holiday remembering those who have passed. People dress up and participate in gatherings and processions, including bringing food and offerings to cemeteries, in order to celebrate the lives of those they have lost. If you’ve never attended a Day of the Dead event before, you still might be familiar with some of the decorations and offerings made for the yearly event, like colorful sugar skulls.

This year, Jose Cuervo is offering travelers the chance to get up close and personal with Día de Muertos, its traditions, and its stories.

Jose Cuervo leads a number of tequila-themed trips to the town of Tequila in Jalisco. Travelers can visit the distillery and partake in other local activities. A very special activity this year is the Day of the Dead train ride.

The experience is a two-day package. On Friday, November 1st, guests get to celebrate a Day of the Dead fiesta in the town of Tequila. They’ll be a part of traditions like the altar lighting and a procession, plus there will be live music, tastings, and storytelling. Stories will include legends, lore, and facts about Día de Muertos, spirits, and the birth of tequila.

On Saturday, November 2nd, guests can visit agave fields and the La Rojeña Distillery before traveling to nearby Guadalajara on the Jose Cuervo Express Sunset Train, a scenic ride that’s a permanent option in the Mundo Cuervo (Jose Cuervo's experience hub) selection of activities but will be put to special use for this Day of the Dead weekend.

The hotel, train, and excursions can all be booked on the Mundo Cuervo website. The train trip goes for $107 per person and includes the outings to the agave fields and distillery.
