Ondalinda x Careyes is an exclusive celebration that will awaken your senses through music, dancing, cuisine, nature, and most importantly, human connections. 

The Careyes jungle opens up to pristine sand and the azure water of the Pacific which is juxtaposed against iconic architecture and one-of-a-kind land art.

Jalisco has been home to the Huichol people for thousands of years and throughout the weekend we will pay respect to their ancient culture. The Huichol people are known for their art, using bright colors in their symbols and designs inspired by visions which were traditionally left as offerings for their Gods.

We are assembling the largest collection of Huichol art together for a private exhibition and conversation with the world's top Huichol expert, Humberto Hernandez. 

We will also be screening Eco de la Montaña, an award-winning documentary portrait of the world's greatest Huichol artist, Santos de la Torre. 

Along with the Huichol people, we will welcome the ancient and otherworldly Mayan Warrior to join us in our revelry on the sands of Playa Teopa.

Ondalinda is bringing musical talents BLOND:ISH, NU, Sabo, HVOB, and LUM to Careyes for the first time ever for a weekend filled with sunset sessions and late night dancing on the beach.
