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.
Dinner is coming to us in the form of a cooking class hosted by one of Mexico City’s top women chefs, Mercedes Bernal of Meroma or Mariana Vizcaino of Comedor. We’ll gather in the kitchen at Ignacia to learn how to make some modern Mexican dishes as a group.
Lucky us, beauty sleep is only a short stroll away.
We've got an early wake up call and places to be, like an all-day mercado food crawl led by Mexico City's resident foodie, Rocío Vazquez Landeta. With a focus on supporting female market vendors, she'll make sure you sample everything your heart desires from tacos to pulque. 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 taught by one of our favorite yoga instructors, Kaitlin King or Charlotte Waldmeir, in the gardens of Ignacia.
After a very zen breakfast, we’ll head to meet Mariana Villarreal, the owner of popular Mexican jewelry brand Sangre de mi Sangre. Mariana will be giving us a personal tour of her studio, a lesson on precious and semi-precious gemstones, and a crash course in jewelry making. You’ll even get to design your own necklace to take home with you.
The late afternoon will be yours to explore some of the city’s markets or museums.
Today we channel our inner Frida Kahlo 👑. We're touring Casa Azul - the Mexican artist's home - with Natalia Zerbato, Mexico City’s ultimate Frida historian. Natalia 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 Parlange & Libia Moreno. 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 one of our favorite women-owned restaurants: Sobremesa, Meroma or NOSO.
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 this is a sample itinerary and some variations will happen between trips due to our partners schedules,
but in general the itinerary will be similar!
WHERE YOU’LL GET YOUR BEAUTY SLEEP
We partner with three women-owned design hotels in Mexico City where you’ll be getting your beauty sleep: Ignacia Guest House, NIMA Local House and Casa Goliana. Since the hotels are small, we split the group across two of the properties, but they are all within walking distance of each other in the charming Roma Norte neighborhood. Your room has luxe amenities like free wifi, Netflix, a Nespresso machine, and fancy bath products.
