      About this trip

      Join Tara & Adrianne for an adventure to delight all of the senses in one of their favorite countries in the world — Mexico! This trip takes place in Oaxaca, a state so diverse and unique that it provides you with ample opportunities for feasting (your eyes, your palette, and your heart), and self-discovery alike.


      The trip begins in colonial Oaxaca City, one of Mexico's culinary, artistic, and cultural epicenters. There, we will participate in a number of cultural activities such as walking through ancient Zapotec ruins, perusing local artisan markets, participating in our own artisan workshop, learning to cook delicious local fare, and sipping Oaxaca's famous drink, Mezcal. Oh - and eating delicious food every step of the way.


      Next, we will head into the Sierra Sur mountain range to San Jose del Pacifico, which sits at 8,000 feet above sea level — higher than the clouds themselves! There we will spend a night and do some ecotourism activities such as hiking, hanging bridges, and a "temazcal" ceremony (a typical sweat lodge of the region). And of course, amazing fare. 


      Finally, we will head down to the fabled and beautiful Oaxacan coast, to the "Pueblo Mágico" of Mazunte, where we will spend our time hiking, watching the sunsets from the beach, snorkeling, and witnessing the prolific sea life of the area. The trip will end with some free time to explore however your little heart would enjoy. Don't forget the mouth-watering coastal cuisine!

      This trip is about the best things in life, in a region of Mexico known for arts & culture, kindness & hospitality, and FOOD. It's about slowing down, taking it easy, and enjoyment.

      Tara, Jess, and Noelle provided a phenomenal experience for my body and soul! Tara took care of all of the details flawlessly and the yoga classes with Jess and Noelle were amazing - especially the morning classes on the rooftop shala with the most incredible views ever. The accommodations were perfect and the food was delicious, too.

      This trip was INCREDIBLE! Everything was extremely organized, from leading up to the trip to the activities while there. I was so impressed with Tara and her organization with accommodations, activities, etc. I wish I could do an adventure every month! I'll never forget this experience and I'm very grateful to now know Tara.
