Overview

overview

Mexico is alive with color! Her markets and textiles and crafts, her foods and her festivals, are feasts for the senses. We are expanding our Mexico explorations from Oaxaca to Chiapas, Michoacan and the Yucatan, focusing on indigenous cultures, artisan and folk traditions, archaeology and natural history. You can celebrate some of the Western Hemisphere's most spectacular annual pageants here. On the cultural calendar, witness Day of the Dead, Night of the Radishes, or any of dozens of saints' day celebrations. On nature's timetable, witness the enormous migration of raptors along well-traveled flyways, or the departure and return of the Monarch butterflies.
