10 Discoveries to Celebrate the Vibrant Hues of Mexico

This week marks the Mexican holiday of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), a tradition celebrated by those of Mexican ancestry across the world. In remembrance of friends and family who have passed, graves and shrines are decorated with orange Mexican marigolds (the flowers of the dead), sugar skulls, paper decorations, traditional foods, among other vibrant adornments. In honor the multi-day celebration, we’ve collected 10 of the most colorful Trover discoveries captured throughout Mexico.
