About the event
Upon arrival, we will check in at the emblematic Mesón de la Abundancia, a charming abode that sets the stage for our unforgettable journey. A warm welcome dinner awaits us at the Centro Cultural Real de Catorce, offering a taste of local flavors and culture, before we retire for a well-deserved rest to prepare for the next days desert experience.
The next morning, after a light and nourishing breakfast, we embark on a thrilling 4X4 adventure, journeying deep into the heart of Wirikuta desert—the sacred realm of the Wirarika culture, also known as the Huichol Indians. These revered guardians of Hikuri, or Peyote, have dedicated themselves to preserving this endangered and mystical cactus.
Our destination is El Venado Azul, a remarkable organization led by a Marakame, a Holy Man, who is on a sacred mission to safeguard this magical plant. Here, we will have the unique opportunity to learn directly from the source—the Marakame himself—about the secrets and spiritual significance of this sacred plant.
Our day unfolds amidst the vastness of the desert, where we will share in the experiences of the Huichol people, deepening our understanding of their culture and the vital role that Hikuri plays in their lives. As the sun dips below the horizon, we will partake in a mesmerizing night in the desert, immersing ourselves in the ancient rhythms of this land.
This journey promises not only adventure but also profound insights into the cultural and spiritual heritage of the Huichol Indians. Join us as we embark on a transformative exploration of Wirikuta, a land where tradition, magic, and conservation converge to create an unforgettable experience.
