What people are saying about Oaxaca
I would recommend this tour/workshop to anyone visiting Oaxaca. You are driven to a small town 40 minutes from the city and visit a alebrije-making workshop. There you are given a tour and shown the different stages that it takes to make these iconic and colorful Mexican art pieces. It was so interesting and eye-opening to see just how talented the artists are and how much work (time) goes into making the alebrije figures. When it’s time for you to paint your own you truly realize the skill set that is required to make the artworks. Painting your own alebrije was super fun! You get to pick your own small piece and are helped by one of the resident artists. At the end you end up with a unique souvenir. You can also buy more professionally made pieces there, which make a great gift for friends and family.
It was an amazingly fun full day! We were picked up later than described in trip description, but was made up at end of day. Captain and assistant were very attentive, informative and enthusiastic. They played music to our request. Cruised to several of the bays, snorkeled as much as we wanted , swam as much as we wanted and were taken to a beach for a beachside lunch. Captain took us to an area for dolphin watching and kept the beer flowing! We were allowed to take food of our own as well for snacks throughout the day. It really was a very fun day.. If ever I return to Huatulco, I’ll be booking this again! Maybe even a sunset cruise, if available. Keep up the good work!
I would highly recommended this interactive experience while visiting Oaxaca. You do a mezcal tasting and learn about the unique and traditional ways it’s made. After the tasting, each person gets to make 3 different mezcal-based cocktails. This activity takes place at a beautiful lounge location and you will actually be behind a real bar with access to all the typical cocktail making tools. Our mezcal guide and cocktail-making instructor Andrea was great! She was very friendly and knowledgeable, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for all the participants.
The Mezcal tasting was really interesting we had the opportunity to learn about the mezcal and had a great time tasting really good types of mezcal. The place is really well located and really nice. An experience that totally worths it to learn about mezcal.
El tour estuvo genial, nos encantó conocer más de Oaxaca con nuestro guía Ivan que nos compartió muchas cosas sobre la historia y los lugares que visitamos
