Hello CDMX, we've arrived 💁🏻.
We'll drop our bags, freshen up a bit, and get to know the other ladies on our trip over cocktails on the Ignacia Guest House patio.
For dinner, we'll head as a group to Niddo. The soulful chef Karen Drijanski will be preparing an intimate dinner for us, designed to nurture and reset our bodies for the new year. Throughout the evening we’ll be talking about the importance of new beginnings and how to make the most of the year ahead.
We’ll start our day with a private yoga and New Year intention setting workshop with Kaitlin King of YogaSoule at Ignacia.
Next on the agenda - Mariana Villarreal, the owner of popular jewelry brand Sangre de mi Sangre, will give us a personal tour of her studio and a workshop on precious and semi-precious gemstones.
The late afternoon will be yours to explore some of the city’s markets or museums.
At night, we'll head to a private dinner curated by chef Norma Listman of Masala y Maiz. You’ll get to meet Norma and chat with her before and after dinner.
We've got an early wake up call and places to be, like a food crawl led by Mexico City's local foodie expert, Rocío. With a focus on supporting female vendors, she'll make sure you sample everything your heart desires. You'll even learn how to make tortillas!
After a cocktail hour in the Ignacia garden, you'll have a free evening to do your own thing.
Today we channel our inner Frida Kahlo 👑. We're touring Casa Azul - the Mexican artist's home - with Natalia Zerbato, CDMX's resident Frida expert, who will be teaching us about Frida's life as we explore her art, clothing, and studio.
We'll also stop at Colorindio, a Mexican textile company owned by our friends Paulina & Libia. They'll talk to us about the importance of textiles in Mexican culture and we'll do a little shopping in their private showroom and the Bazaar Sabado market in the historic neighborhood of San Angel.
Then, back to Ignacia for cocktails before a final group dinner at Meroma curated by Chef Mercedes Bernal.
We'll say our goodbyes and exchange contact info over breakfast before packing up and heading to the airport. If you're planning to extend your stay in Mexico, we'll help you get to the right place (with some travel tips, of course!).
We partner with two women-owned design hotels in Mexico City where you’ll be getting your beauty sleep: Ignacia Guest House and Casa Goliana in the charming Roma Norte neighborhood. Since the hotels are small, we split the group across the two properties, but they are within walking distance of each other. In your rooms you’ll have luxe amenities like free wifi, Netflix, a Nespresso machine, and fancy bath products.
