Myths and Mountains Provide Insider’s Access to Markets
More than shopping…
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Award-winning experiential tour operator Myths and Mountains, known for its culturally immersive itineraries, often provide access to the very best markets in each destination using local guides.
Meandering through a city market or village is a unique facet of an adventure tour, allowing travelers to experience many aspects of a culture in a single visit. The combination of craftspeople, farmers, musicians and street food make up the tapestry of the experience. Myths and Mountains encourages guests to interact with artisans for a tremendously rewarding adventure
Food is often a part of the marketplace, and visitors might glimpse regional delicacies they wouldn’t see otherwise. In Peru, that might be a grilled guinea pig or ceviche in Ecuador. Performers may surround you with the sounds of the country and evoke a festival atmosphere. Little in these markets is mass produced. The money spent on carefully-crafted jewelry, textiles and ceramics stays in the hands of the artisans.
No matter your shopping style, a visit to the marketplaces in Latin American destinations are a big part of the cultural experience Myths and Mountains is known for.
