Oaxaca is a wonderfully diverse state in southern Mexico, stretching from the enormous pine forests of the high mountains in the north, down to tropical rainforest on the Pacific coast in the south, and everything in between. It’s home to dozens of range-restricted and endemic species of birds, some only found in the state of Oaxaca!
On this exciting tour, we will search out the rare endemics that put Oaxaca on the map for international birding, but also enjoy the rich and delicious culture of southern Mexico! Known for its world-class food and mezcal, Oaxaca is also a major destination for food and drink enthusiasts, and we will not miss out on the chance to experience some of the world’s best food!
We will end the tour with a whole day devoted to exploring the city as it prepares for the biggest celebration of the year, Día de Muertos or Day of the Dead! Marigold flowers are everywhere, music and excitement fill the cobblestone streets of beautiful historic central Oaxaca, and decorated skull art adorns every shop and window.
