Lonely Planet have teamed up with G Adventures to offer you and a companion the chance to win an incredible six-day tour of Mexico City when the Day of the Dead festival takes place.

The Prize

– Two return economy flights from London to Mexico City

– Two places on G Adventures’ six-day ‘Day of the Dead in Mexico City’ tour, guided by G Adventures’ Chief Experience Officer, with five nights’ hotel accommodation and a variety of excursions included

THE DEAD… ARE ALIVE’ AS THE OPENING titles of the 2015 Bond film Spectre read. Now one lucky reader and a companion can experience the same thrilling parade on a six-day trip to Mexico City with small group travel company.

Mexico’s Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) on 2 November is not just a time for families to remember loved ones, but has grown into a dazzling, even life-affirming celebration that captures the mix of the country’s cultures, Indigenous and Hispanic. Even if the capital’s mega parade started life only when requested by the 007 film-makers, the festivities’ roots go back centuries.

On your tour (search for trip code ‘CMDD’ at, you will acclimatise first with a stroll around Mexico City’s Unesco-listed historic centre, and a visit to San Juan Market to try some Mexican specialities. The following day is the time to get your face painted, watch the floats and dancers, and join the after-parties.

You’ll see another facet of this event at San Andrés Mixquic on the outskirts, lit by flickering candles and scented with incense. There’s also free time to explore ancient pyramids, take in the art of Frida Kahlo or even watch a lucha libre match – should you wish to seize the day in Mexican style.
