FROM OAXACA CITY TO HIERVE EL AGUA

Why Travel To Oaxaca?

Colonial Architecture. Lively Art Scene. Legendary Cuisine.

The word is out on one of our favorite regions in Mexico: Oaxaca. We’ve been fans of this corner of Mexico for a long time — Kristen even lived there for a month on one of her first-ever trips to Mexico! And one minute in Oaxaca and it’s easy to see why: the colorful Colonial architecture, the festive environment, and food that’s argued to be the best in Mexico — there’s a lot to love.

Traveling with us is no ordinary group trip though! You’ll meet our local friends who are experts in everything from design to food. Kristen will share her incredible photos skills and you’ll cook all the things with Aida! The ladies previous experience hosting group trips to Mexico means they know the ins and outs of the local culture and will show you everything they love from the best moles or rustic mezcal spots to hard-to-find handmade wares.

OAXACA CITY BOUTIQUE group TRAVEL

Your Group Trip Hosts

Travel Experts. Hospitality Professionals. Local Hosts.

From its food to its history, its design and culture, your hosts, Aida Mollenkamp and Kristen Kellogg are enamored with all things Mexico and share it with guests on their co-hosted Mexico group trips.

Aida, a trained chef, author, Food Network personality, and food expert, and Kristen, a travel connoisseur and filmmaker, share a passion for all things creative. Fittingly, the friends met while traveling and spent that trip doing their favorite things: tasting the cuisine, trying local products, and endlessly exploring. 

Kristen lives part time in Mexico City and, as evidence by our Mexican wine country tours, Aida loves all things Mexico — from the food to the history. Following the success of their Mexico City group trips, they’re launching group trips to Oaxaca starting in 2019.
