Visit the small, surrounding communities of Huatulco and learn about their culture and traditions. Begin your tour in the little town of Piedra de Moros, where you’ll see and learn about the medicinal plants and herbs grown there and the diseases they can cure. Taste a refreshing lemon herb tea and see the traditional way of making tortillas and bread. Learn the use of nopal cactus and sample these traditional Mexican products.

Your next stop will be in Santa Maria, here you’ll visit its beautiful church that was built in the 17th Century. Visit a local blacksmith's artisanal shop more than a century old, and where today working tools are made from recycled materials. Then, stop by a rustic Mezcal factory where you’ll see the elaborate distillation process of this traditional Oaxacan beverage and learn about the different uses of the "Maguey" plant. Return to your ship with memories of these Mexican communities and their traditions.
