  • Can I drink the water there, and are the rumors about stomach issues true?"
    Do NOT drink the tap water. We recommend bringing a reusable water bottle or purchasing bottled water. You will be trying new foods, drinking mezcal, and adjusting to the elevation. This can make for a “wonky stomach” in even the most ironclad gut. Pack smart and a bring your ideal stomach remedy. The DDM team will also be stocked up with supplies and prepared to help.
  • What do you mean by "meals provided?""
    We will be providing you with 2-3 large meals a day. Complimentary breakfast is also available at Hotel CasAntica. You will also have plenty of time to independently explore the amazing culinary scene in Oaxaca.
  • What is the weather like, and what should I pack?"
    Oaxaca is around 80 F during the day and drops to about 60 F at night. While June is the dry season, it can rain, so we recommend bringing a rain jacket or umbrella. Plus if you pack it, you know it won’t rain. *bad joke, not a promise* Pack closed toed shoes and long pants for walking the palenques, and comfy clothes for outdoor exploring. Sun sensitive? Bring a brimmed hat and sunscreen. Tote a swimsuit if you like lounging poolside, and a camera to document all the fun. Pro tip: all agaves are photogenic.
