Mexico January Cultural Getaway

January 12 - January 21


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.

13-21 January 2023

6 nights in this amazing city (and two more in Mexico City).  Enjoy all that Oaxaca has to offer with this cultural and culinary getaway.

Our visit includes:

  • 2 cooking classes – remember, chocolate comes from Mexico!
  • 1 hour Spanish lessons per day (optional)
  • 2 excursions – Monte Alban (the first planned city in the Americas) & a full day out of the city to markets, mezcal production and the largest tree on earth (by girth)
  • 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 fly up to Mexico City for two nights. I have picked a friendly, safe hotel in the very centre. Mexico can take a lifetime to discover, but in two days we will touch the highlights.

This high altitude capital is home to the incredible anthropological museum, so of course we’ll plan a visit and explore the Aztec and colonial history of North America’s larges city – expect to walk!

Technical Details

  • Fly into Oaxaca (there are direct international flights) January 13 & fly out of Mexico City January 21. Book your own international flights (but we can help)
  • We will book the internal flight!
  • In Oaxaca we’re planning to use a very clean 3+ star hotel walkable to everything (I’ve stayed there before) with breakfast
  • 4 Star central hotel in Mexico City
  • Cooking classes, Spanish classes, tours, entrance fees all included and free time is a must (Oaxaca is very safe)
  • January weather is almost always a blue sky in Oaxaca – warm days, coolish nights (the city is in the mountains at 1550 metres (5000 feet))
  • Final price will depend upon numbers, but budget $2000 USD pp for shared accommodation (plus flights)
  • Airport transfers on your own, unless we all arrive somewhere together
