Oaxaca, Puebla, and Cuernavaca with Florencio Moreno
Begin in Oaxaca for four nights to explore this spirited city, its nearby local villages, and the world-class folk art for which Oaxaca and the surrounding areas are known. Step back in time in the UNESCO World Heritage city of Puebla, known for its centuries-old culture, colorful buildings, and traditional craftsmanship. Three nights
are spent at the exquisite new Rosewood hotel, made up of a collection of buildings from different periods, arranged around a central courtyard which houses a 300-year-old chapel. Steps from the hotel is the zocalo, the main square of Puebla, where architectural styles span periods from the Renaissance to Mexican Baroque. End with two nights in Cuernavaca to visit its great museums and take a day trip to Taxco. An extension in Mexico City will be offered. The tour is planned and led by one of SBMA’s favorite guides — cultural anthropologist and historian Florencio Moreno — who lives in Oaxaca and intimately knows every one of its treasures and hidden gems.
