Delight in the unique cuisine, bustling market places, ancient ruins, colonial architecture, and contemporary & traditional art forms as we visit private the artist's studios and local museums. We'll create art journals, inspired by our daily experiences, using printmaking and mixed media techniques.

We only offer refunds if the tour is cancelled because of government imposed restrictions and or lockdowns in which case there there will be a full refund. This is the rare exception to our no refund policy. We feel we have to offer this as planning travel under the pandemic brings uncertainties.
Medical Travel insurance will be required for this trip as we will be in a remote location. We also recommend trip cancellation insurance as well for your own peace of mind. Lots of people like https://www.travelinsure.com and they cover both.
Some thoughts on the pandemic - The last thing I want is the gringa tourist bringing death and disease to vulnerable indigenous populations. We all know how that turned out in the past. All tour goers will need proof of current Covid vaccinations. I know there may be those who are unable to get vaccinated because of medical vulnerabilities and I am sorry but no exceptions.
We will get together in the evening for a
light meal and a meet and greet session.
