One of Mexico's most vibrant states, Oaxaca oozes with rich flavor, both literally and figuratively.
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 throughout the valley, and the enchanting mountain towns home to artisans and craftsman. This trip also has the option to add on an addition 4 day/3 night excursion visiting Oaxaca's Pacific Coast in Puerto Escondido!
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!
There's never a dull moment in Oaxaca, especially during the Day of Muertos and Guelaguetza festivities. While Oaxaca is one of México's more economically challenged states, it is rich in culture, resilience, and creativity. Not to mention Zapotec beautiful weavings as well as impressive pottery and artwork so shoppers make sure to bring an extra suitcase to take your goodies home!
We will also get you off the beaten path by visiting some of the women-led small businesses to learn more them, how micro-financing loans work and sustainable models for micro-financing. Lastly, we will eat A LOT of delicious food, sip on mezcal, join in parades, see amazing art, stroll through the Zócalo and have an overall amazing time!
