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.

TRAVELER REVIEWS

This was unlike any group trip I’ve ever been on. We were able to see the incredible city from the inside, rather than doing all of the corny, touristy stuff. Lauren Bates, the owner, has made so many personal contacts in Mexico City that we never felt like tourists. We walked into the markets and the restaurants hugging and loving on all the locals, as if we were family. It was truly an incredible experience that you can’t find anywhere else. I couldn’t recommend this trip more!
— Lauren M.
I had the best time on my Wild Terrains trip! I was a little nervous at first, since I would be traveling with girls I didn’t know super well, but it was great. We all had common interests, which is why we ended up on the trip together in the first place. I had some notions of what I thought Mexico City would be like, but I was so wrong. Wild Terrains showed me the real soul of the city by connecting me with some of the strong women who make up its core.
