      About this trip

      Girls LOVE Travel is thrilled to work with Heart of Travel to bring you an incredible adventure through Oaxaca during Dia de Muertos, a bucket list trip!


      Our days will be filled with exploring Oaxaca City and the surrounding areas including the Zapotec ruins of Monte Albán, the vast agave fields, family-run mezcalerias, and enchanting mountain towns home to artisans, craftsmen, and healers. There's never a dull moment in Oaxaca, especially during Día de Muertos.

      Our First Priority is Your Safety

      As much as we want for this trip to go exactly as planned, we can not plan for complications that arise especially due to inclement weather or closures due to extenuating circumstances like Covid-19.  


      For the safety of the group, we are requiring that ALL attendees  provide a negative covid test 72 hours prior to the trip. You can email it to glttrips.covid@gmail.com. A vaccination is not required to attend this trip.

      Girls LOVE Travel will not be giving any refunds for those who test positive and are not able to join the trip. We highly encourage travel insurance to cover instances like this. 


      We will be following all COVID protocols to ensure the safety of everyone on the trip.  Please be prepared to bring a mask to wear on the airport transfer, bus to the catamaran adventure and other enclosed experiences &/or local shops. 


      Additionally, the tour is listed as a package, and no price adjustments will be given if someone wants to "opt-out" of an included activity. 

      Costs and Payments

      Your spot will be secured when we receive a deposit of $600.  Upon receipt, the deposit paid is nonrefundable and non-transferable.


      The remaining balance is due by August 14, 2023.


      Due to this being a specialty trip, the payment schedule and cancellation policy has been adjusted.  In the event that you need to cancel your trip, these fees will be applied:  


        • Between Now-August 16, GLT retains only nonrefundable deposit ($600) 

        • Between August 17 and August 28, GLT retains 50% of the tour price.

        • Between August 29 the departure date (October 28), GLT retains 100% of the entire tour price.


      ADD ONS - you can choose to add these up until 75 days before the trip (August 14). These are nonrefundable after August 15.

      Recommended International Flight Times

      Arrival flights on first day (October 28): 

      We recommend arriving in the morning or early afternoon to have time to transfer to the hotel and get settled in before the welcome dinner.


      Departure flights on last day (November 3): 

      We recommend planning your departure to be in the afternoon (no earlier than 12 pm) so you have time to enjoy breakfast at the hotel before you depart. 


      Departure flights after extension: 

      Afternoon (after 1pm) recommended so you have ample time to fly back to Oaxaca City from Puerto Escondido.


      Please reach out to the GLT Trips team if you have any questions about flights to and from Oaxaca city.

      This was my first GLT trip and it will not be my last! I didn’t know a single person beforehand but left with several new friends and travel buddies. We maximized our time in Guatemala and got to see and do so many incredible things like hike a volcano, make our own pierce of Jade jewelry, meet incredible Mayan women and learn about their trades (textiles, chocolate making, ceramics, midwifery and medicine). I was unfortunately delayed by a day in arriving due to severe weather, but the team handled it with grace and was helpful in providing documentation to my travel insurance. Haley even offered to get me some coffee beans as I would be missing that tour! I have many wonderful memories of Guatemala and the girls of GLT that I will cherish forever.

      The La Karavana hosts were amazing, they treated us so well and everything on the itinerary was fun and interesting! I really had a blast and met some great women! The food they prepared for us was delicious, too!

      I had a wonderful time! Enjoyed the entire unique experience of camping in this beautiful country with a bunch of sweet people. The sights, food and activities were great

      Two weeks later and I still cannot stop thinking about what an amazing trip this was and how much I want to go back! Yasser was the most incredible tour guide and honestly made the trip what it was. It was the perfect balance of hitting all the touristy landmarks and visiting hidden gems where you are able to feel immersed in the culture. The food- AMAZING. The people- so kind. I never once felt unsafe and felt truly cared for by our guide, our bus driver, and the hotel staff. Had I visited and planned the trip myself I would not have been able to appreciate the city as deeply, and it is 100% thanks to Yasser! Truly one of the best experiences of my life. If you're on the fence like I was about booking a trip, this is your sign to do it now! You won't regret it(:

      Amazing trip! This was my first group trip like this and I’m so glad I did it. The group of women I met were amazing. I did activities I wouldn’t have thought of otherwise, and they were all so much fun. Guatemala is absolutely beautiful and the culture is so cool. I’d 100% do this again.

      I really had no idea what I was in store for when I booked this trip. Egypt is on most of our “bucket lists,” so expectations were high. Before leaving, GLT makes everything seamless. Booking is easy, communication lines are open and responses are prompt. I also found the Facebook Group to be particularly helpful with the expertise of people who have either traveled to Egypt or have gone on GLT trips. The itinerary is thoughtfully curated to allow time for rest if you want (you won’t want, trust me!) or you can choose to go on other excursions. As soon as you land you’re met by an agent who guides you through customs and gets you in transportation to the hotel. When we arrived at the hotel it was close to 2a. Enter Yasser, our guide. He welcomed us with his warm smile even though it was early morning. We were impressed. I remember getting the feeling we were in good hands, but that was only the beginning. From day one you could tell Yasser was full of knowledge. He answered every question with love and passion. We were mesmerized by the stories he told us and we quickly became family. Everywhere we went Yasser knew someone. After a quick hello and a hug, Yasser’s friends would be on their way, but not before yelling things like, “you have the best guide” and “that’s my teacher. You’re very lucky!” As I write this, I can’t help but to smile. Yasser made this trip memorable. I felt extremely safe and loved the opportunity to meet new people and socialize. If you’re on the fence and thinking about going on this trip, don’t think! You’ll leave in awe of this magical country and you’ll leave with a new extended family member with the name of Yasser. You won’t be sorry.
