The region around Oaxaca in the south of Mexico is one of the most diverse in the country. A hub of indigenous culture, it’s home to the country’s most vibrant arts and craft scene, a unique cuisine accompanied by the famous Mexican mezcal, pre-Columbian archaeological sites, and breathtaking scenery. The beautiful colonial city of Oaxaca is at the centre of the state offering a wide range of cultural activities. The nearby Sierra Norte invites travellers to hike and visit indigenous villages to learn about the region’s medicinal plants and ancient ceremonies or explore the process of how mezcal is manufactured. In the south, across the remote mountain ranges you will find Oaxaca’s tropical coast with its amazing beaches and world-famous surf towns.
You will embark on a trek that will take you from the alpine region of Oaxaca all the way down to the pristine beaches of the Pacific. The trail is a full immersion into the real, often untouched Mexico. Each day you will embark on a hike accompanied by local guides from the indigenous communities. You will eat local and delicious food, with the produce all grown within the areas you are journeying through. Witness nature and man living in harmony. You will camp under the protection of the trees, drink from fresh water springs, and sleep under the stars on clear nights. The reward after the adventure and challenge of the trek will be the vast wide sandy beaches and trendy towns along Oaxaca’s Pacific coast.
