EXPERIENCE

A “Verbena” is a classic Mexican party that pays homage to tradition. We celebrate a different theme every year. Our first year,2014, the theme was “Zapotec Wedding.” In 2015, we celebrated “La Guelaguetza.” 2016 was the year of “Mole.” This year our theme is “Mezcal.” We are creating a special edition, “Mezcal de Pechuga” to honor our theme.

OAXACA CITY

Oaxaca City teams with cultural diversity, not only because of the great number of indigenous peoples that inhabit the region, but also because of the constant tourist flow. The central part of the capital reverently combines the new and the historic. Our city has museums and galleries on every street corner that portray diverse traditions and beliefs living hand-in-hand. Oaxaca boasts one of the largest collections of graphic arts in all of Latin America: BIAGO (Biblioteca del Instituto de Artes Gráficas de Oaxaca) as well as, a textile museum, Santo Domingo historical museum and many other shops that specialize in art, local crafts and gastronomy.
