"A week in Oaxaca with Luisa and Mexico In My Pocket was the best way to dive deep into the soul of the region. She connects the group with the spirit of Oaxaca by granting access to homes, shops, and stories of local artisans and chefs. Luisa has carefully taken the time to cultivate relationships with so many locals, which in turn opens the door to experiences for her groups that would be difficult to access without her." - Erica Connolly, Dallas Texas.
"On our trip to Oaxaca, I could tell that Luisa really put her heart and soul into showing the city and people she loves so much. She put together an incredible trip that felt so personally connected to the land and culture. Not only was it an honor to join on my first trip to Mexico, but it was so moving to witness American Mexicanas connect to their own roots. Luisa is truly creating such a unique and beautiful space that I haven't seen offered anywhere else." - Brit Alveno, Northfield, Minnesota
"My trip with Luisa and Mexico In My Pocket was nothing short of magical. I am a seasoned solo traveler and there is no way I could have created this experience on my own. The relationships Luisa has cultivated and the effort she puts into her planning is analogous to the artisans she highlights. The through-line is passion. The food I experienced, the beauty I witnessed, and the people I met were extraordinary. I'm leaving Mexico with a full heart." - Shannon Velasco, New York City
"Luisa, words can't explain how much I appreciate the experience you curated for all of us. I have traveled a lot, especially to Latin American countries, but never have I ever felt so immersed in a culture. Because of you, I got to meet so many inspiring local artisans and powerful girls in our group. I admire how you, using your own actions and words, help create a more holistic and colorful picture of a highly stigmatized country like Mexico. Now I can proudly and wholeheartedly say, Mexico is also in my pocket." - Stella Sun, China
"I always heard that Oaxaca is the heartbeat of Mexico. As a Mexican-American, I needed to visit this magical place. As a non adventurous person, traveling to Oaxaca, on my own was not happening. Then comes Luisa / Mexico In My Pocket and plans this immersive, stress free trip and it was finally my chance! This trip, was exactly that! I don't know how she did it, but she brought together a group of strangers on the trip of a lifetime! This trip was filled with a deep understanding of Oaxacan culture, food, and art, in a safe, stress free environment. The bonus, unexpected friendships, a lifetime of memories and a deeper understanding of myself. Can't wait to join her on the next adventure!" - Rosie Fregozo, San Mateo, California
"Memorable doesn't even begin to describe my trip with Luisa to Oaxaca. She created a trip that allowed me to experience the beautiful artisans and culture of this region. I'm so happy to share this experience with the people that went with us. I cannot thank Mexico In My Pocket enough for this moment in my life." - Anna Bass, Houston, Texas
