Our Kind of Tour

The journeys created by Traditions Mexico are one-of-a-kind; unique and innovative cultural journeys built around learning, understanding, going beyond, engaging and connecting people to people. We offer trips that take you comfortably beyond the ordinary in Southern Mexico. Our journeys range in length from one day to two weeks. We travel in small groups, no larger than twelve, so as not to overwhelm our hosts, and so that our visits can be personal and meaningful. We create off-the-beaten path experiences that cater to an audience that is curious about the world beyond their borders, roots and culture.

Our backcactus journeys immerse you in the lifeways of the little known, culturally diverse world of Oaxaca and Chiapas. They introduce you to the people and places of another land, another way and another pace. Traditions Mexico takes you across that cultural gap. We bridge that gap by creating encounters around common interests such as pottery, weaving and food creation, or immersing ourselves in the goings on of a local festival. In this way we share and participate, creating a two-way exchange and a dynamic encounter, breaking down the barrier of “us and them” and creating magical moments of what we believe much of travel is about; people meeting people with their eyes wide open.
