MAGICAL OAXACA Culinary, Art & Cultural Tour
June 21 – 28, 2023 and March 17 – 24, 2024

Mexico’s southern state of Oaxaca is a magical place that is a feast for all the senses. It is no surprise that this city was named this year’s # 1 destination in the world by Travel & Leisure! It is known for its concentration of incredibly talented artisans who weave, sculpt, carve, paint and embroider, not to mention that it is home to one to the world’s most complex and exciting cuisines. In Oaxaca, the mercados (markets) are the heartbeat of each village and city; it is where locals and chefs still gather daily to buy and barter centuries-old food staples as well as exotic produce that is both beautiful and delectable. Come to Oaxaca and experience living history through her people who proudly embrace and cling to their traditions of dress, language, foods and arts. Be immersed in her music and in her flavors. Come to dance, cook, savor, observe, listen, explore and experience what we think is one of the most delicious and interesting destinations our world has to offer.


It is simply a fascinating place to explore. Join us this June or March 2024 as we return to further learn from and experience the riches of the central valleys of Oaxaca, Mexico. We’ve teamed with Oaxaca’s best chefs, traditional cooks, artisans and guides to lead us through several days of hands-on classes and workshops. Please contact us directly for more information or to register (208) 676-8784.
