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 Day 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.

Sijan's review for another G Adventures tour
“The Sydney to Brisbane trip was fantastic. Our guide was absolutely terrific even with the slight change of plans due to the storms passing through Tamworth or the bush fires devastating large regions of NSW. There was a mix of slow and fast paced days, some cultural exposure along with some coastal beach life. I would recommend people doing the longer Sydney to Cairns trip (or even through Melbourne) if they have the time.”
