Celebrate the culture of Oaxaca by visiting Mexico's cultural center for one of the most important celebrations of the year: Day of the Dead.

We will romp (respectfully!) through decorated graveyards, bear witness and dance alongside the parades of "dead", drink plenty of Mezcal while pouring some extra in honor of any loved ones we are missing. The parade isn’t the only attraction, of course.

Throughout the trip, we’ll visit small towns whose inhabitants create artisanal rugs and pottery. We’ll tour the ancient ruins of Monte Alban. And best of all, we’ll visit the town where Mezcal comes from, and maybe, just maybe, sample those wares, too.

Price includes:

  • Roundtrip flights (from most major U.S. cities)

  • Daily breakfast

  • Transportation to and from airport

  • 5 night stay in our charming boutique hotel in the historic center of Oaxaca

  • Day of the dead parade, live music and cemetery festivities 

  • Mezcal tour and tastings

  • Artisan rug making tour 

  • Food market tour and cooking demonstration with Oaxacan chef (and a drink or two)

  • Visit to the ancient ruins of Monte Alban and Mitla

  • Personal translator

* All rooms are double occupancy unless single occupancy is requested at an additional fee
