Full description

Get ready to discover some of the best places in Oaxaca. Start with a visit to Santa Maria el Tule, home of one of the most extraordinary natural beauties including the giant tree (The Tule Tree), with a height of 40 meters and a diameter of more than 50 meters. It is said it´s more than 2000 years old, which makes it perhaps one of the biggest and oldest living things in the world. You’ll then make a little stop in the small town of Teotitlan del Valle, famous for its home-made textiles.

One of the day’s highlights will be a visit to Mitla, which in Nahuatl means “Place of the Dead”. Mitla used to be a ceremonial center of the Zapotecs and it´s now famed for its outstanding mosaics on its walls, a unique style of decorating in Mesoamerica.

You’ll continue the excursion with an adventurous ride to Hierve el Agua, where you’ll have the chance to see the petrified waterfalls and take a refreshing dip into the mineral baths while enjoying the breathtaking landscape. Conclude the day in the most typical way; at a mezcal distillery. Learn about the traditional production process and you won´t leave before you have tasted Oaxaca´s sacred liquor.
