During the Dias de los Muertos, the village has a tradition of Mayan origin unique to the region. After having been buried for about three years the remains of the dead are exhumed and cleaned in order to pay tribute to them. Thereafter the bones are wrapped in tablecloths and stowed in a wooden box.

A very interesting place to see the local culture in celebration our last journey. I wouldn't say it's scary, it's just a different way to keep in touch with the "gone" family members; we liked the colorful " tiny houses "

A unique experience of local culture. Bizarre and freakish but worth a stop. We felt lucky that we were able to enter inside the cemetery and walked through (and snap some photos). The care taker pretty much did not like having stranger because he yelled at us to leave and locked the gate. Its small but cool.

As described, super macabre, never seen anything like it. According to a local guy we spoke to the place is amazing on Dia de los Muertos!

Old people are laying around in parts (already dead). Crazy experience but nothing for people with weak stomaches.

Worth a stop if you like freaky stuff. All the human bones & skulls are laid out 😲. Not sure if they are there all year, we visited soon after Day of the Dead.
