My spouse and I had an absolutely unforgettable trip to Oaxaca, Mexico, with Ward and Tot Albro for el Día de los Muertos. Ward and Tot had prepared an itinerary that was full, interesting, and fun. It included everything from tours of Zapotec ruins to tequila tasting, and of course many Día de los Muertos experiences.
