Mexico January Cultural Getaway

January 14 - January 24

Easygoing and vibrant, Oaxaca City – Capital of the most indigenous State in Mexico is beautiful, safe and friendly. Mexico’s culinary capital, people come from all over the world to study cooking, Spanish and to enjoy an eternal spring-like climate.

Many of you have discovered this fine city on our virtual tours. It is also rated one of the best destinations in the world.

I have been travelling there for 25 years and my Dad wintered there four times.

January 12 - January 24, 2023

6 nights in this amazing city, one night high in the mountains and three nights at the resort town of Huatulco. Enjoy all that Oaxaca has to offer with this cultural and culinary getaway.

Our visit includes:

  • A full cooking class with chef Oscar – remember, chocolate comes from Mexico!
  • 1 hour Spanish lessons per day in Oaxaca (optional, but worth it)
  • 2 excursions – Monte Alban (the first planned city in the Americas) & a full day out of the city.
  • Plenty of free time to explore the city streets, enjoy the flowers, birds and shops at your leisure – oh and watch the sunset from any number of terraces
  • Lovely walking areas around the city and exercise opportunities
  • From Oaxaca we will drive to the costal mountains for an overnight, then down (way down) to the tropical coast.
  • Huatulco is wonderful and safe. One of the youngest resorts in Mexico.

  • Fly into Oaxaca (there are direct international flights through Houston & Dallas) On the 14th. Fly home from Huatulco Jan 24 (or stay on if you like)
  • You will need to take care of airport transfers, we will take care of all other transport
  • In Oaxaca we’re planning to use a very clean 3+ star hotel walkable to everything (group loved it last year). We’re not including breakfast in Oaxaca this year as so many enjoyed walking to the park for a fresh juice!

  • Airport transfers on your own, unless we all arrive somewhere together
