We will start this tour in the city of Puebla, a World Heritage UNESCO Site. We will be staying at a boutique hotel that has been transformed to a guest house three blocks from the main plaza. We have four nights to visit the museums including the Museo Bello, Museo Amparo, Museo Casa del Dean, Palafoxiana Library and the Ex-convento Santa Rosa, and stopping some in the incredible baroque churches. In Puebla we will tour the Uriarte Talavera factory and the Barrio de la Luz, where the famous clay cazuelas are made. Last but not least, we will try the specialty culinary treats made famous in Puebla.
On Monday, we will travel to Cuetzalan, our home for the next eight nights. We will visit the village of San Miguel Tzinacapan for their fiesta honoring Saint Michael which includes processions and mask dances. During our time in Cuetzalan, we will visit and see several known textile artisans, candlemaker artisans, mask carvers, the archeological zone Yohualichan and the lush environs. Our hotel is in the center of town located two blocks from the plaza. We will have plenty of time to meander the beautiful streets, shops and the market. We will take several small trips to visit the nearby villages to see the churches, artisans and try the typical foods of the region.
The last two days in Cuetzalan are the Feria del Cafe y el Huipil. The processions, dances and market are the culmination of our week in Cuetzalan.
On Tuesday, October 5 we will take the 3½ hour trip to Puebla and that evening we will have our farewell dinner.
