Alebrije and Chocolate Workshp

Alebrijes are mythical and fantastic creatures re-created by the Artisan Pedro Linares in the 1900’s. As a result of an illness and suffering fever dreams, this artisan hallucinated that he was in a forest with rocks and clouds, many of which turned into wild, unnaturally colored creatures, frequently featuring wings, horns, tails, fierce teeth and bulging eyes.  After recovering from his illness, Pedro Linares started re-creating those animals which immediately caught the attention of the world renowned artists Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo.  Soon those creations became extremely popular in the Mexican culture and now you can see them in several expositions and popular art museums. We are very proud to now bring to you, the only Workshop of this kind in Cozumel, where you and your family will be able to recreate and take home your very own personal Alebrije in a fun filled activity for all ages and especially for kids.  Let your imagination fly and use bright non-toxic water based paints to bring to life these fascinating wooden carved creatures.  Then is hands on into the fascinating making process of the most popular candy in the world: chocolate !!!  Learn about its origin, process and taste several varieties of this delicious treat.

Oaxaca Day of the Dead & Puerto Escondido

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.
