Flight Information


Booking flights from Denver (DIA) to Oaxaca thru Houston (IAH) or Dallas (DFW) is preferable than flying thru Mexico City (CDMX) because it is often so chaotic and American Airlines has the best options. www.aa.com

Full Service Package cost per person: $1,200 USD 


We will limit this trip to 16 participants. Securing space requires a 50% down payment that we can take by check or credit card. We will form a waiting list in case there are refundable cancellations before October 1. Pay at the bar.
