DBTC Journey to Mata Ortiz, Mexico Trip!
September 24, 2014 @ 7:00 am - September 29, 2014 @ 8:00 pm
Join Discover Baja and Baja Custom Tours on a wonderful adventure to Mata Ortiz, Mexico! This six-day trip will take place from September 24-19, 2014. Trip will start and end in San Diego.
This trip is full of treasures—ancient ruins, newly discovered caverns, unique handcrafted pottery, and always, the wonderful Mexican people. It is hard not to become enchanted with the village of Mata Ortiz and its warm, compassionate, talented people. It is home to the legendary Juan Quezada – the magnificent artist and humble teacher who has discovered the lost secrets of this special type of pottery making and has taught them to the people in his village. You’ll meet local pottery artists, learn about the pottery process, watch the artists making their pottery in action, and of course get the opportunity to purchase some of the wares to take home with you. In addition to experiencing the pottery scene in Mata Ortiz, you’ll have the opportunity to visit ancient petroglyphs and cave dwellings at Cueva de la Olla, and see the Paquime Archaeological Zone, ruins of a civilization from the 1200s. On the way back from Mexico, a stop at the Kartchner Caverns State Park in Arizona will be sure to amaze!
This will be a perfect opportunity to buy gifts and either start or add to your own collection of Mata Ortiz pottery. These works of art will only increase in value as Mata Ortiz becomes better known throughout the world. Visit the village now while it is still relatively untouched.
