Tlayudona is composed of an all-women core team and a network of predominantly women hosts, so it´s only natural that we create great experiences for women travelers.
Our founder is a sociologist who focused on gender and feminism during her career in academia, so while we respect diverse ways of seeing the world, we maintain a strict attention toward women’s experiences.
What sets us apart?
The world has its eye on women and our rights recently, which means that many businesses have picked up the buzzwords and market directly to women. How are we any different?
Tlayudona was founded on gendered principles. What does this mean, exactly? We were watching how narratives were conveyed in the tourism industry in Oaxaca (and around the world), and the stories being told were almost always by men. Men teaching us about their own cultural roles, but also men regailing us with women’s stories. Meanwhile, women are generally bustling away in the background doing all of the hard jobs that a touristic experience requires. We wanted to change that, and our commitment to showcasing and empowering women is part of each step of our project’s design.
Our all-women core team knows what it’s like to travel. That’s just another reason why it’s so important to us that we can ensure a safe, comfortable, and engaging experience for your group of women travelers!
WE Got You Covered
We foster a feminist work environment based on principles of sorority, solidarity, and mutual respect. Some of our hosts share our passion for critique from a gender perspective, and some come at it from other angles. All are strong, engaging, and remarkable women.
Depending on the needs of your women’s group, we can orient you toward the specific experiences and/or hosts we think would be the best fit. Tlayudona is dedicated to providing safe experiences for every person (but especially women and people from other groups that can often be doubly-marginalized when we travel outside of our communities).
While we don’t promise that everyone you meet along your journey will share your particular point of view, we do pride ourselves on creating a secure environment for exploring our differences, learning, and cross-cultural growth. Let’s work together to create your journey!
