We want to make the experience a cultural exchange, so your second day will be full of gastronomic delights and nature walks hand in hand with your hosts. First, you will take a horseback ride along the river with Chucho, until you reach the hot springs nestled in the jungle, where you can take a relaxing bath and learn about the medicinal powers of the waters. Afterwards, you can enjoy a delicious Oaxacan dish at Doña Eneida’s house, who will kindly share some of her cooking secrets with you.

We all loved the traditional Oaxacan mole. It is certainly not the same to eat it in a restaurant than to taste the homemade seasoning of a local family. We had the opportunity to talk with the family, and even meet Don Chucho’s granddaughters. His wife accompanied us to buy cheese with a local lady and we bought some accessories from Ismael’s sister. We were also very grateful that they allowed us to leave our dog at their house so we could go on the horseback ride. The warmth of Ismael and his family was what we enjoyed the most, in addition to the hot springs and the clay bath. We are very grateful to Ismael, Don Chucho, Jorge, Fernando and Chucho for accompanying us during the ride. Ismael was very attentive to us all the time. He was explaining the types of trees, animals, traditions and culture. We enjoyed the company and without a doubt it was a unique and unforgettable experience. We were very happy, we would totally recommend it and I would even repeat it but this time staying in the cabins :D

After spending months looking for a local travel agency to offer us the trip we wanted to do, and we found it, they not only offered it, but they improved it infinitely. They made suggestions around what we wanted and offered us many things and various alternatives to the activities we wanted to do.
