Oaxaca is soulful and vibrant, and it packs in so much of the complex, fascinating culture of Mexico. Walk colorful markets and hike ancient Zapotec pyramids all in one day. Oaxaca's cuisine will blow your mind, the mezcal is better than anything you've ever tasted. Come for rich history, artistry, and gastronomic traditions—come to experience the heart and soul of Mexico.
We’ll be a part of it all—at artist studios, ancient ruins, local markets, street-food stands, hacienda hotels—from Oaxaca City to San Sebastián Teitipac. We tour ancient Zapotec pyramids and meet traditional weavers, go on the hero’s journey of mezcal at the agave farm of a multi-generation mezcalero, prepare a farm-to-table feast. Discover more than you thought possible in one lifetime.
Our Oaxaca is for the cultural connoisseur as much as the Mexico novice. If you’re a lover of traditional art, stunning scenery and really, really good food, look no further.
Oaxaca is a year-round destination with weather that rarely disappoints. Experience cultural festivals like Día de Muertos in November, or opt for the warm summers and extend your trip to include a beach getaway.
Want to delve deeper into ancient indigenous culture? Always dreamed of hands-on cooking the best traditional foods? A mezcal master class? Whatever your interests, we'll craft your unforgettable Oaxaca adventure.
