2730 Day of the Dead Celebration
2730 Day of the Dead Celebration

Join a very small group for an unusual visit to Mexico's state of Michoacan (MEECH-wa-cahn). Begin in colonial Morelia, continue to the villages of the Meseta Purepecha, and enjoy a finale on the shores of Lake Patzcuaro, where Day of the Dead traditions are believed to be more dazzling, more beautiful, more colorful, and more elaborate than anywhere else in Mexico. Michoacan is similar in many ways to Oaxaca; they both offer breathtaking vistas, large indigenous populations, and strong arts and crafts traditions. Michoacan, however, has had fewer tourists and you'll find an innocence, simplicity and lack of pretension here. Lené Minder, JOURNEYS Central America specialist, and Stephanie Schneiderman (also known as Tia Stephanie) will lead the group, and we've invited a number of the personalities who impressed us last year to be a part of the team.

Christmas in Oaxaca for Families
Christmas in Oaxaca for Families

This Christmas holiday trip in Oaxaca offers more color and more hands-on fun than anywhere else in the Americas. The trip begins in charming Oaxaca City in the heart of the high valley, continues with a breathtaking flight across the Sierra Madre del Sur to the coast, and concludes in Huatulco, known for its dramatically beautiful shoreline and secluded bays. The over-the-top pageantry of December 23 features parades of giant papier-mache heads, and competitions between artists who create sculptures from 7-pound radishes. This day alone would make the trip worthwhile, but you'll enjoy one delight after another from the moment of arrival. Sample Oaxaca's exotic fruit popsicles in flavors ranging from lime to tamarind to jamaica (ha-MY-ca). Learn from weavers and woodcarvers and try your own hand at painting those whimsical wooden animals that Mexicans call alebrijas (ah-lay-BREE-has). Learn from a Mexican grandma how to cook tortillas, tamales and Mexican hot chocolate. Explore Monte Alban, the first urban center of ancient Mesoamerica. Visit a coffee farm. Swim, snorkel and star gaze.

Inti Rayi Festival and the Sacred Valley
Inti Rayi Festival and the Sacred Valley

The Winter Solstice in the southern hemisphere and the local harvests are the driving force behind the greatest, most majestic pre-hispanic ceremony to render homage to the sun. Today, the Inti Raymi Festival evokes the splendid Inca ritual of yore, being carefully scripted by Cusco professors, archaeologists, and historians. The central event is acted out on the esplanade below the imposing fortress of Sacsayhuaman, outside the city of Cusco. There, step by step, thousands of actors enact a long ceremony giving thanks to the sun god, Inti. On this Peruvian adventure, you will experience the Inti Raymi Festival as well as tours of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, the Pisac Market, Ollantaytambo, and mysterious Machu Picchu. Your nights will be spent in some of Peru’s most luxurious and renowned accommodations, including the Hotel Monasterio in Cusco, which was originally a monastery built in 1595, and the Sol y Luna Lodge, a rustically elegant resort in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
