INCREDIBLE JOURNEY: Southern Mexico Archaeology/Oaxaca Tour, November 30, 2018.

Southern Mexico is a world away from San Carlos. This tour has become one of our favorites and will become one of yours too. We visit one of the southernmost states in Mexico, exploring major archaeological sites as well as the history, culture, and the people of this region.

The archaeological sites of Monte Alban and Mitla will be featured. We will start our tour in Mexico City with a private introduction to these sites by docents from the internationally renowned National Anthropology Museum. Then we fly to the city of Oaxaca, named for the 2nd year one of the 15 Top Cities in the World, and spend the next four days exploring not only Monte Alban, but the local arts and crafts famous in this area: alebrijes, the colorful wooden animal figurines; the black pottery of Coyotepec, unique to this town; Teotitlán and its weaving; walking tours of Oaxaca City and fabulous sampling of regional foods you will never forget.

And although this trip is not about shopping, you will have a hard time passing up incredible values on fabrics, clothing, leather goods, pottery, and carved figures. All the while, we will be sampling the local flavors of food and beverages in a very different culture.

This tour is 7 days long, fully escorted by bilingual hosts, assisted by knowledgeable locals. Included is private transportation San Carlos/Airport/San Carlos, round trip air, airport transfers, six nights lodging (double occupancy), day tours, private coaches, a welcoming dinner and breakfasts every day. Not included are gratuities and alcoholic beverages and most meals.
