Get ready to taste the authentic flavors of Oaxacan cuisine while our knowledgeable guide shares the stories behind each delicious meal.

During the tour, you’ll have the chance to try some unique and traditional treats. Start with “tejate,” a special drink made from cacao, corn masa, and fragrant flowers, known as the “drink of the gods.” It’s a taste that will transport you to ancient times and traditions.

Next up are memelitas, which are crispy corn tortillas topped with various tasty ingredients. They showcase the abundance of local produce in Oaxaca and offer a delightful combination of textures and flavors.

Of course, a journey through Oaxacan cuisine wouldn’t be complete without trying mole, the region’s renowned specialty. This complex sauce is made with spices, chilies, and chocolate, creating a unique and delicious flavor that reflects Oaxaca’s culinary heritage.

To accompany your culinary exploration, we’ll introduce you to mezcal, a smoky and robust spirit that Oaxaca is famous for. Raise a glass and savor the distinct flavors, celebrating the craftsmanship and traditions behind this cherished beverage.

Lastly, indulge in the creamy and indulgent quesillo, Oaxaca’s beloved cheese. Watch as it stretches and melts, releasing its rich flavors with every bite. It’s a true taste of Oaxaca’s dedication to artisanal excellence.
