Zapotec Traditions, Artisans, and Culinary Tour

The Zapotecs have inhabited the rugged landscape of Oaxaca for over two millennia. And they still maintain their distinct culture, rich in unique cuisine and crafts. 

Explore the ruined platforms of Monte Albán, a Zapotec city that flourished for over a thousand years. 

Visit a clamorous market in search of masterful textiles. 

Shop for ingredients with a local family, exploring the ancient traditions behind staple meals, before sitting down to a guisado. 

See how Zapotec traditions interact with more recent history, at a Spanish chapel that incorporates sacred Zapotec carvings. 

Immerse yourself in Zapotec culture through a range of experiences, in an afternoon or over a number of days.
