Velas are big dances or balls that are held every year in the month of May by the people of Juchitan. The “Intrepids Seeking Danger” is a group of Muxes that have been giving their own Vela in the month of November for over 20 years.
The Vela consists of a Catholic mass to start off in the morning, followed by a big breakfast at the annual hostess house, then the big ball (Vela) Saturday night in cocktail dress. Sunday is the Lavado de Olla, or potwash party, when all the Muxes wear traditional regional dress and pass the mayordomia over to the next year's hostess.
In this tour, we visit many friends I have in The Isthmus of Tehuantepec. We have cooking demonstrations and classes, visit craft villages, have the opportunity to know and learn from the Muxes of Juchitan about their lives, and experience an incredible fiesta. I will rent trajes or the regional costumes for all participants.
The last day is spent cooking under a thatched roof palapa on a tranquil, pristine beach before we return to Bahamas de Huatulco, where this tour begins and ends.
This is a 4 day-5 night tour in November.
