I do not know if it is done but a few years ago the men from the various villages around would come and build tradtional houses and altars on the evening, night of the first on the plaza in Merida and the women came the next day in the morning to fix the special food for the day of the dead and everyone came to eat at the plaza around 11 am. It was quite fun. Each village has its own style of house and also has differnt types of food. Yhat is where I first had iguana and Xtanbetun liquor. It is a touristic event but quite fun.
