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 Meroma, a restaurant by one of Mexico City's most popular female chefs, Mercedes Bernal.
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.
Hello, International Women’s Day!

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 with woman-owned culinary group Nativa Concina.
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!).
