With its mountain ranges intercut by narrow valleys, steep canyons, and ravines that descend into sandy beaches, Oaxaca’s terrain is as rugged as Mexico gets.
Just in time for Día de los Muertos festivities, this curated four-night, five-day October journey through Oaxaca’s handicraft havens will take guests on trips to artisan Pueblos Mágicos in the mountains outside the capital city, such as Teotitlán del Valle, an ancient Zapotec weaving village; and Santa María Atzompa, a town in the Valley of Etla where wood-fired pottery kilns have been producing intricate “sgraffito” pottery for centuries. Guests will settle in at Escondido Oaxaca, a colonial hotel in the heart of the city’s downtown designed by the Mexico City-based architect Alberto Kalach that marries Indigenous architecture with Mexican-modern design.
An Explorer’s Club for a new era aimed at travelers who crave cultural immersion and connection through wonder-filled experiences across the globe, PRIOR approaches travel with conviction, creating extraordinary experiences that celebrate and conserve what is beautiful, endemic, and rare in world cultures.
