Details and What to Expect


Monte Alban

Like all Go Learn journeys, the adventure begins at home. We'll make sure you have all the information you need before you arrive in Mexico—we'll answer questions about what to pack, how to get around, and our daily itinerary. We want you to arrive in Oaxaca ready to learn!

A trip reunion about a month after returning from Oaxaca will be the perfect conclusion to our journey. We will exchange pictures and stories while remembering the highlights of our tour. Go Learn expeditions are designed to be small, boutique experiences where one returns with a group of friends. Good food, drink, and company await us at this reunion.

About Oaxaca

Activity levels and restrictions

In order to fully explore the sights on our itinerary, we will be walking every day. Most city walking is flat on paved surfaces. When visiting sites, we may be walking long distances or standing on our feet for prolonged times. Be sure to bring comfortable walking shoes. We often will start our days early and continue until sundown. Our exciting itinerary and daily learning adventures will keep you happily exhausted.
