One exclusive Arlington Club departure
Oaxaca City, Teotitlan del Valle, Monte Albán, Coyotepec
“This is the best thing I’ve ever tasted.” It’s a phrase you’ve said more than once today, let alone this week. You’re eating your way through a bustling central market, sampling everything you can get your hands on. Seared meats a la plancha send smoke into the air, baskets brim with fresh produce, mole powders, flowers and coffee beans. You crunch into sweet and aromatic nixtamalized corn elote like you can’t get anywhere else. How can such deceptively simple ingredients yield such intoxicating flavors? You’re in Oaxaca–packed with culture, traditions and more flavors than you can imagine.
If you travel to stimulate ALL of your senses, this trip is for you. Wander colorful markets and prepare a farm-to-table feast, taste incredible street food from moles to tlayudas, then wash it all down with the finest hand-crafted mezcals. All the while, connect with shamans and weavers, local artists and chefs. This is our Oaxaca.
From humble street stalls to award-winning kitchens, we'll savor the freshest mole sauces, the smokiest mezcals
We'll explore agave farms and meet traditional mezcaleros, weavers and sculptors in nearby mountain villages
Reset your emotional spirit, and connect with Arlington Club members and group of like-minded cultural explorers
“Oaxaca is a gift. Just the light and colors. And obviously—the food.” -Anthony Bourdain

We curate travel experiences to inspiring destinations. Each adventure is designed to broaden horizons, expand exploration and, perhaps most important, create opportunities for Arlington Club members to connect with one another to create lifelong memories and friendships.
