The trip Oaxaca To Puerto Escondido: Day Of The Dead starts from Oaxaca and ends in Puerto Escondido. It is an explorer tour that takes 7 days taking you through Oaxaca and Puerto Escondido in Mexico. Oaxaca To Puerto Escondido: Day Of The Dead is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

In Mexico, death isn’t the end of the road — it’s the beginning of a huge party. Rooted in Aztec tradition, Oaxaca’s colourful Dead of the Dead festivities have been drawing curious visitors for decades. This week-long tour throws you right into the middle of the action with four straight days of parades, macabre costumes, and market visits in search of sugar skulls. Then, it’s off to the coastal town of Puerto Escondido for a few days of well-earned R&R on the beach you’ll be more than grateful for — or, if you’ve still got the energy, parties galore.

“Fantastic / beyond imaginings. I thought the planet was explainable in 3 dimensions but Nepal and this trip will open your brain to a multitude of dimensions. The trip leader, Kasang Sherpa, was phenomenal, knowledgeable and thoroughly professional. A true ambassador for Nepal and all that this unearthly region represents.”
