Su Amiga es Mi Amiga
Your Friend is My Friend
Sunny spring days filled with the happiness that comes with relaxation, great food and cultural exploration are in your future.
Mexico City provides a great introduction to Mexico. The capital city is now a clean and safe place to get your feet on the ground and brush up on your Spanish. We include the Museum of Anthropology, Frieda Kahlo’s home, the Shrine of Guadalupe, and the pyramids.
Oaxaca is a rich treasure with its mysterious archeology, creative artisans and unique cuisine. We will have a good exposure to all that makes Oaxaca special.
The recipe is perfect - a dash of cooking classes, and a pinch of archeology, and a splash of artisans.
