SAMPLE TRIP ITINERARY
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.
Then, we’ll head as a group to a private dinner hosted by women-owned culinary group Sobremesa inside a stunning old mansion.
Happy Fourth of July! 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. We’ll celebrate the holiday by eating all the tacos. 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.
We’ll start our day with a private yoga class in the gardens at Ignacia.
Next, we’ll pay a visit to the popular jewelry brand Sangre de mi Sangre and Ana - one of their top designers - will give us a personal tour of their 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, dinner is coming to us in the form of a cooking class hosted by creative chef Mercedes Bernal. We’ll gather in the kitchen at Ignacia to learn how to make some modern Mexican dishes as a group.
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.
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.
