Casa Crespo is Oaxaca in its kitchen. Tradition lives there, where chef Oscar Carrizosa, (originally from the Mixteca region) mixes the ingredients of the 16 ethnicities of Oaxaca with the original seasoning that he inherited from his grandma. It´s the perfect place to get to know the flavors and aromas of Oaxacan food in the classes that Oscar gives. To taste a good cup of coffee or a hot chocolate at Casa Crespo while getting ready for your market tour is also a good start to approach Oaxacan cuisine. Oscar, who is very friendly, also shows how to smell and identify the aromas that come of the dishes. He presents menu options and the students decide what they would like to cook. There is no fixed menu. He teaches how to cook 3 types of tortillas, 3 types of salsa, an appetizer, soup, mole, dessert and drink. Dishes that strive to remain in the taste buds and memory of those who love good eating.

Oaxaca is a magical city. The skies are deep blue in the heart of the valley. Women in embroidered huipiles, colorful houses, flowers on the trees, parades and local people garnish the streets. And then there's the street art. We will be cycling around 3 neighbourhoods of the city visiting interesting spots, art workshops and of course, street art. They are everywhere: big murals, stencils, posters. Oaxacan Artists are abundant and very talented. It's like visiting an outdoor museum.

Walk and discover the side of Puerto that tourists rarely see: real food, real people, real passion. If you are planning to go to Puerto Escondido this tour is a must. Why? Firstly, because you will discover the most “local” part of Puerto, where the locals actually eat, shop and live (far from the touristic beach sector). Secondly, because it’s got all the basics you need to know about Oaxaca’s food culture, this tour is packed with Mexican specialties and unique experiences to make you feel like a true Puerto local by the end of it (and for sure know the difference between a normal local cheese and the “Oaxacan” cheese one). Thirdly, it’s simply delicious So, if you feel hungry for Oaxacan cuisine, thirsty for cultural knowledge, and adventurous for an exciting walk – this tour is for you
