Mexico's Day of the Dead in Oaxaca

Highlights

  • Mezcal Factory Tour - Not to be confused with tequila, this distilled liquor is made in small batches from a variety of species of agave (spiky green plants that look like the tops of pineapples). Sample different types, including white unaged mezcal (often sold with an agave larva inside), along with “reposado” and “añejo” (aged) batches.
  • Monte Albán Tour - Enjoy the 360-degree views, see Olmec carvings, and be sure to visit the museum to see artifacts and stele excavated in the early 20th century.
  • Oaxaca Culinary Experience - Enjoy the culinary delights of Oaxaca with a local host. Stop at a market and a chocolate-grinding mill along the way, and participate in a tortilla-making workshop. Then head to the home of a local family to sit down to a meal together.

Itinerary

Celebrate one of Mexico’s most intriguing—and unusual—festivals in the eclectic city of Oaxaca, where indigenous culture holds strong. During Day of the Dead, which takes place at the end of October and early November each year, pre-Hispanic traditions honouring the departed merge with Catholic feasts to create a truly unique holiday. Delve into the bizarre and beautiful spirit of Día de los Muertos, witnessing spectacular street dances, costumes, and altars while discovering the picturesque landscapes and mouthwatering flavours of Oaxaca.
