About this trip

Join us during Semana Santa (Holy week) and witness the beauty of Mexico’s most culturally and linguistically diverse state. Meet with Indigenous activists, enjoy world famous Oaxacan cuisine, visit the ancient archaeological sites of the region, visit community run projects and witness  the Holy Week celebrations. 

These celebrations happen in a state that has suffered disproportionately from the collapse of rural economies and decades long surge of out migration detonated by the original NAFTA accords, as millions of Mexicans — bereft of income and opportunities – headed north. We will look at how Oaxaca was destabilized by this exodus and what people are doing now to hold onto family and community even when they are dispersed geographically.

Global Exchange Reality Tours
The idea that travel can be educational and positively influence international affairs motivated the first Reality Tour in 1988. Global Exchange’s Reality Tours are not designed to provide immediate solutions or remedies to the world’s most intractable problems, nor are they simply a kind of voyeurism. Rather, Reality Tours are meant to educate people about how we, individually and collectively, contribute to global problems, and, then, to suggest ways in which we can contribute to positive change locally and internationally.
