What’s new?

The streets are growing more lively and colorful by the minute as our city preparess for this year’s Guelaguetza!

Oaxaca was voted the World’s Best City in 2020, and we have been receiving visitors from every corner of the world accordingly!

If you are new to the city and would like an introductory experience, look no further than our new Cycles and Celebrations Drink Walk! You will get a taste of some of the city’s best flavors, and a dose of local culture in the process.

Tlayudona is continuing to revolutionize the tourism industry with our sustainable women-led model. We ensure that local women design and spearhead our experiences, and that they are paid well for their time in addition to what they receive for their crafts and products!

We have recently honed our favorite “classic” experiences and have added new ones to the roster, with our returning guests in mind!

We are so happy in our new super-centric space! Come check us out inside the Plaza San Cristobal at 210 C on M. Bravo Street. where you can also find wonderful Spanish instruction and…. chocolate! As usual, we tend to have local coffee brewing and are happy to talk to you about upcoming experiences. We promise to help you make the most out of your stay in our lovely home!

From Oaxaca, with love, Tlayudona!

What does the word “tlayudona” mean?

In Oaxaca it’s used to refer to a large, thick-framed person who boasts a lot of physical strength. The expression alludes to the giant tortilla called a tlayuda–because they’re resistant and durable. They bend, but don’t break.  It’s considered a compliment here to be “tlayudón“, and in this case with the added “a” in tlayudona, the word refers specifically to women.

Our story

Tlayudona was born from the intersection of two ideas: A sociological analysis about how we experience culture, people, and places; and a practical desire to connect people who are visiting Oaxaca to people from the local community who are doing interesting things.

Our founder had watched for over a decade how visitors arrive in Oaxaca genuinely wanting to connect to the local community in authentic and respectful ways, but how those paths to doing so are not often visible. At the same time, so many of our friends were doing amazing things around Oaxaca that the rest of the world knew nothing about. So we decided to build that bridge, and call it Tlayudona.
