The Isthmus of Tehuantepec is unlike any other region in Mexico. Tehuantepec and Juchitan are located in Mexico’s most narrow point between the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific, and from the moment you arrive, your senses tell you that this place is different. The climate is hot and tropical, the landscape is rich and lush, the famous “traje” worn by women is vibrant and dramatic, the women call the shots, and the festivals known as “velas” are parties held in honor of local patron saints.

The expression, “work to live” fits well here, as the reason to work is to save enough money for the next vela! So, who needs Studio 54 or any other swanky disco, when we can dance and party into the night at a Vela in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec.
