An artful, culinary urban adventure for women

This five day/four night adventure is based near picturesque Ajijic, (pronounced Aah-hee-HEEK), a colonial village with narrow cobblestone streets, colorful houses, beautiful ornate murals, and vibrant local markets. Nestled on the shores of Mexico’s largest freshwater lake, Lake Chapala, Ajijic has a vibrant and bustling energy while still holding onto its relaxed, charming colonial vibe. Ajijic is a tucked away gem, perfect for wandering the streets, perusing the small boutiques and galleries, chatting with vendors selling fresh produce and crafts, and of course, tucking in for a delicious Mexican meal.

From this vibrant basecamp, we will explore all that this diverse, rich region has to offer. Our group will visit the studios and showrooms of local artists, and urban clothing and jewelry designers in private events. We will explore the naturally-detoxifying, mineral rich healing thermal pools that surround Lake Chapala (rumor has it, these healing waters will deliver the best night sleep of your life!). We will enjoy the budding food scene, which artfully combines both the traditional and the modern and enjoy the blissfully temperate year-round climate of this mountainous region. Each day will begin with an invigorating yoga and meditation practice overlooking expansive Lake Chapala.
