2017-2018 Tours

 
We have organized several trips for you and your friends and family during the upcoming 2017-2018 season.  There are two new tours: to Querétaro/San Luis Potosí to enjoy the beauty of Querétaro and to share in a peyote ritual, and to Michoacán to see the monarch butterflies. And we will repeat two of our most popular trips: Oaxaca during the Day of the Dead and Chiapas during the Carnival. Finally, for this season, we have added two trips that will combine two of Marina’s favorite passions: the textiles and the fiestas.

We invite you to be immersed in the beauty of México and its people.

 

 Querétaro & San Luis Potosí
Sept 28-Oct 6, 2017

On this special journey, you will be part of ceremonies known as “mitotes,” sharing in the ecstatic experience produced by music, dancing and peyote consumption. You will “come alive” with rituals, songs and prayers, music and dances.  You will visit the colonial city, San Luis Potosí, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and four Pueblos Mágicos, designated by the Mexican government as towns that are especially rich in culture, history and beauty.

 

Oaxaca & Puebla for Day of the Dead
Oct 27-Nov 4, 2017

The Day of the Dead is a very special celebration all around México and Oaxaca is no exception. On this tour, you will have the opportunity to see, smell, hear and enjoy one of the most important festivities in the area. You will visit indigenous communities, markets, plazas and parks with incomparable beauty.

 

Carnival in Chiapas
Feb 6-14, 2018

During the first days of February, just before Ash Wednesday, the villages celebrate the Carnival. Some of the most extensive celebrations take place in villages around Chiapas. You will be able to take part in these celebrations; sometimes, we may be the only foreigners there.

 

The Monarchs at Michoacán
Feb 24-Mar 4, 2018

This is a trip designed for those who love nature and appreciate the beauty of a monstrous volcano as well as a little butterfly, while being immersed in the Purépecha culture and enjoying visits to five Pueblos Magicos.

 

Reflections in Diversity: Exploring Culture through Textiles
June 16-26, 2018 & July 14-24, 2018

On these unique adventures, travelling to both Oaxaca and Chiapas, you will have the opportunity to experience thirteen centuries of a rich, diverse, highly evolved, and deeply spiritual culture reflected in its textiles.
