Lots of great things about this trip: Day of the Dead in Oaxaca was amazing! Loads of different pre-Hispanic sites (and good historical commentary), fascinating opportunities to experience indigenous communities (the visit to San Juan Chamula in San Cristbal was utterly unique and a real high spot), chances to buy high quality textiles made by local people, variety of accommodation including the Frontera lodge which we accessed by riverboat. ”
