Day 3 Puebla

Start the day with a delicious breakfast before catching a colourful local bus to Puebla, Mexico’s culinary capital. The city is renowned for dishes which combine Spanish and pre-hispanic influences, such as chiles en nogada (stuffed chillies covered in creamy walnut sauce). Venture out on a culinary city tour – start with some Pueblan street food at Mercado de Sabores Poblanos before making a beeline for Calle de los Dulces (Sweet Street) to sample tortitas de Santa Clara (shortbread biscuits) and camotes (sweet potato lollies). Check out the much-loved and very colourful Lucha Libre wrestling this evening.

Days 4-6 Oaxaca

Enjoy a cooking class in Puebla, where you’ll learn the secrets behind some of the dishes you’ve been tasting while here. Then travel to Oaxaca, a beautiful colonial city nicknamed the ‘land of the seven moles’. Visit the fabulous Abastos Market and enjoy some delicious regional specialities including grasshoppers, cactus fruit and Oaxacan cheese. Chocoholics won’t want to miss a trip down to the shops on Calle Mina for a taste of real Oaxaca chocolate – it’s no wonder it’s seen as the food of the gods! Explore the impressive ruins at MItla and savour the smoky taste of mezcal, an alcohol similar to tequila, on a visit to a local mezcaleria (distillery).
