    Oaxaca is synonymous with biodiversity, and it is full of natural wonders, culture, and adventure. If you're looking for the perfect elements of Mexico to discover, then this is the place. Let us introduce you to Oaxaca’s culture and archeological sites starting with Monte Alban, a “Zapoteca” (indigenous pre-Columbian settlement) full of history and traditions.


    You’ll learn about the distillation process in the making artisanal mezcal. Our mezcal distillery tour takes you on a comprehensive learning excursion. You will journey into a village to learn about the production and have a tasting of the agave based spirit, mezcal.


    Let’s not forget what LocalAdventures is all about, adventure! The highlight of this experience will be hiking, biking and rappelling in the middle the forest of Oaxaca’s mountains. You’ll be accompanied by the best adventure guides in the region and marvel at Hierve el Agua, a system of several petrified mineral waterfalls that look like they were lost in time. We’ll share with you Oaxaca’s priceless treasures, its natural spots and amazing views.
