Culture and Nature in Central Mexico.
As one of Mexico’s most precious jewels, Oaxaca has everything for the traveler who is eager to plunge into a strong historic and cultural experience with a twist of adventure included. We visit the mystical sites of Monte Albán and Mitla and the UNESCO world heritage city of Oaxaca, foodies will seduce their palates at Oaxaca´s XVII century local market and at the sophisticated Oaxacan fusion cuisine restaurants. We’ll immerse ourselves into the Sierra Norte, one of the most biologically diverse regions in Central Mexico, whose local inhabitants have managed to develop one of the most sustainable community led ecotourism projects in the world. Our Zapotec guides will turn our hike, mountain bike ride into a unique opportunity to share ancient knowledge of nature and traditional way of living.
