My friend (& fellow Spanish teacher) and I traveled with Traditions Mexico to experience the Day of the Dead up-close and in-person. It was an unforgettable trip - I highly recommended that every Spanish teacher visit Oaxaca at some point in their career. Pictures and videos of el Dia de los Muertos do not do it justice. We visited with... More

I have previously visited Oaxaca three times and loved it, but never got to know the people and culture deeply until visiting the countryside and people with Traditions Mexico. We took two tours - Sunday Market and Timeless Cuisine. The Sunday Market tour began at the amazing Tlacolula. We visited the market, shopped for food, and then ate with a... More

The Oaxaca tortilla tour was fantastic. A great way to see not only another aspect of Oaxaca but also a Mexico not usually seen by most tourists. Alex was a great guide and host. I had a thoroughly enjoyable day! Hans

Traditions Mexico arranged two days of exploration in rural Oaxaca for my wife, my daughter and me. We all are students of Spanish, and we asked to be guided in Spanish. We were joined by a most lovely native-speaking guide, Alex Muñuzuri, who led us through a truly amazing series of encounters with local craftspeople. We ate freshly-made cheese within... More

We took the food tour with Alejandra. I am a semi- professional cook and it was humbling to see how dexterous the artisans we visited were at their craft. But even more than the food it was really fascinating to get a glimpse of real Mexican life in the villages. Alejandra has great connections and her relationship with the people... More

Two enthusiatic and informed guides, Denise and Carlos, led us on an exploration of the textiles arts of the Oaxacan coast from homes to cooperatives to dyeing using the "milk" of well hidden sea snail. In addition, we participated in village carnivals prior to lent, met budding artists and basked on remote beaches. Only wish that we had planned for... More

Festival Maya, led by Chip Morris, fulfilled all our expectations for a guided tour. Chip know Chiapas, speaks the languages of the villages, and offered a learned commentary. We felt this was a highlight of our travels.

This is the second time I've toured Mexico with Traditions Mexico. This time I joined 10 other women from Canada and the US for the amazing Profound Oaxaca tour. Once again I was transported into a magical world of Mexico's indiginous potters and weavers, spending 7 days touring the north west area of the state of Oaxaca. Eric and Iliana's... More

Just returned to my everyday life after an enchanting week in Oaxaca--city and remote villages--with Eric and Iliana and the Profound Oaxaca tour. The entire week was a perfect peak experience which took our gringo group of 11 U.S. and Canadian women to places and people we never could have accessed on our own. Eric has forged deep and meaningful... More

Carlos Ortega and Denise Lechner took us on a 9-day adventure investigating the textile crafts of the Mixtec, Chatino, and Amuzco people of the Oaxacan coast. We learned about growing the coyuche cotton (some was green!), the spinning, and weaving of some gorgeous fabrics from the local women's cooperatives and single craftspeople. We also spent a glorious day on the... More
