The Day of the Dead in Oaxaca (and Puebla!)

Authentic Mexico Travel


Eight days and seven nights in lovely Oaxaca (and Puebla!) at the very best time of year. We will immerse in this lovely place right during the fascinating and mysterious Day of the Dead celebrations. We will walk the streets, eat our way through the markets, and explore the graveyards of Puebla City and Oaxaca City and the small towns around.


This journey will be filled with options for experiences including:

  • Remote ruins and history
  • Local Day of the Dead festivals
  • Local cooking made real as we learn to make ethnic foods
  • Evenings seeing the traditions close up
  • All kinds of crafts and art including wool weavers
  • The incredible foods of Oaxaca- including chocolate, mole…
  • Brews of the area from pulque to mescal
  • Much more as we amble about the area in this enchanting holiday season
  • Options for you to relax and explore enchanting Oaxaca


The trip begins as you arrive on your flight into Mexico City (MEX), opens with two nights in lovely Puebla City, and features 6 days in enchanting Oaxaca City. Then you return, flying out of Oaxaca City (OAX)(Or–NOTE–you can travel back to Mexico City by van for $50 per person and fly out of MEX Nov 4 –or stay longer if you want. We can make hotel and guide arrangements for you)

. Plan your flights to arrive at MEX by early afternoon on October 27. Then fly from OAX anytime on November 3(or from MEX Nov 4 or after–see above). Note that if you fly from OAX to MEX on return, allow time (2 hours) to transfer for your flight to the USA as you may have to change terminals.


Note: You can arrive early if you want (in Mexico City) and of course stay longer…in either Oaxaca or Mexico City. We can connect you to the hotels we are using or suggest others, and we can provide some fascinating tours in both locations. One very nice option is to include 3-5 days at the tiny seacoast town of San Agustanillo, Oaxaca and return from Huatulco (HUX).
