Hello CDMX, we've arrived 💁🏻.
We'll drop our bags at the gorgeous Ignacia Guest House, freshen up a bit, and get to know the other ladies on our trip over cocktails on the Ignacia patio.
For dinner, we'll head to Masala & Maiz, a pop-up restaurant by one of Mexico City's most popular female chefs, Norma Listman.
We've got an early wake up call and places to be, like a food crawl led by Mexico City's local foodie, 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 garden, you'll have a free evening to do your own thing.
After a scrumptious breakfast at Ignacia, we're heading out to meet Ale & Andrea, the owners of Bunch of Flowers, at Mercado de Jamaica 🌸 to pick up some local Mexican flowers. With our floral supplies in tow, we'll head to their beautiful studio for a flower arranging workshop.
You'll have the afternoon and evening to explore the city on your own.
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 Frida's life 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!).
*Please note the itinerary and schedule is not final. It will be similar but finalized in August 2018.*
You'll get your beauty sleep at the fabulous Ignacia Guest House in the charming Roma Norte neighborhood of Mexico City. We'll have the place to ourselves.
You'll share rooms & queen beds since there are only five rooms on the property. When they're this beautiful, you'll hardly mind. In your rooms you have wifi, Netflix, a Nespresso machine, and fancy bath products. (Let us know if you're traveling with a friend and we'll pair you together!). Mornings will start with a delicious Mexican breakfast and evenings will kick off with cocktails on the patio. Oh, and you'll be happy to know this hotel is owned by an amazing woman named Gina, who used to call this house her home before turning it into a boutique hotel.
