Prior to leaving, be sure to have

  • Passport. Check the expiration date is at least three months after your planned tour dates. Keep a paper copy or digital photo with you during travel.

  • Necessary medications. We recommend you keep these with you in carry-on luggage.

  • Sunscreen

  • Bug spray

  • Compact umbrella, waterproof jacket or rain poncho

  • Refillable water bottle

  • Travel insurance information and contact numbers

  • Extra room in your suitcase for souvenirs. Or, tuck a fold-out bag into luggage to hold your purchases on the way home.

  • A few Mexican pesos (see FAQs for further information)

Once you are in Oaxaca, plan to

  • address the high altitude (5000 ft elevation) by drinking lots of water, resting well, and limiting alcohol intake during your first few days

  • take a daily siesta (which just makes sense wherever you are!)

  • Dress comfortably and especially love your feet with comfortable, sturdy shoes.
