Our days will be filled exploring Oaxaca City and the surrounding areas including the Zapotec ruins of Monte Albán, the vast agave fields, and family-run mezcalerias sprinkled throughout the Tlacolula Valley, as well as enchanting mountain towns home to artisans and craftsmen.
From small batches of smoky artisanal mezcal to complex moles, Oaxaca is a food and spirit lovers' playground. The delight to the senses is endless, you can find yourself sitting on the edge of a turquoise water pool, looking out at the petrified waterfalls of Hierve el Agua by morning, and later conclude your evening joining a celebratory street parade!
Once you’ve cleared customs and immigration you will be greeted in the airport foyer by one of your Program Directors. Together, you will travel via private shuttle to your hotel in the beautiful colonial town of Oaxaca.
This evening we will enjoy a delicious welcome dinner at one of Oaxaca’s many beautiful restaurants serving up fantastic regional dishes. For those arriving earlier in the day, we will be more than happy to show you around and assist with anything you may need.
