True Treasure Hunt

In the early 1800’s, when wealthy Spanish land owners fled Mexico before the War of Independence, they often buried their gold coins around their haciendas. We have a hot lead on a stash yet to be discovered, and we’re inviting a group of Lucky Piece Holders to join us and our underground surveillance experts for this live treasure hunt in the colonial highlands of Mexico.

The Experience

The Legend of Three Cows

The story has been passed down the Zamora family for generations: buried in the skins of three cows, and placed in a very specific location, is an untold treasure of gold coins. Our plan is to use a blend of underground penetrating radar, metal detection equipment and other tools to identity these carcasses and the potential mother lode of Spanish coins.

The Region: Tlaxcala

The smallest of Mexico’s states, Tlaxcala is known for the variety of its corn, production of pulque or ancient nectar of the gods (it’s made from fermented maguey plants) and celebration of pre-Aztecan religions and languages. Our treasure hunt will not only be a search for gold, but also a cultural exploration of this truly unique part of Mexico. 

The Itinerary:

Welcome Dinner: Thursday, November 1st

Our treasure hunt will begin in the stone-arched dinning room and under the candelabras of our partner hacienda’s main dining room. Over a traditional Tlaxcalan meal, featuring local pulque and other delicacies, we’ll introduce you to our underground surveillance experts, who will outline the mission at hand. After dinner, we’ll inspect the gear we’ll be using to hunt for the gold, and take flashlights into the fields for a walk through of the site.

The Hunt Begins: Friday, November 2nd.

After breakfast, we’ll break into teams and accompany the experts into the field, mapping that various sections of the targeted site and learning the mechanics of how to create underground surveys. We’ll then head into town for country style comida, or afternoon lunch, and return to the hacienda for a siesta, finish up our mornings work and fade to cocktails and dinner.

The Hunt Continues: Saturday, November 3rd.

We’ll be up early in the coolness of the morning to continue our exploration with the goal of reviewing some early data in the afternoon. We’ll then head to the local market of Ixtenco for lunch. Our guide will be Doña Maria, the hacienda’s chef, who will give us a tour and pick up supplies for dinner. Back at the hacienda, Doña Maria will give a cooking class and teach our group how to prepare a few Tlaxcalan specialties for a team dinner.

Data Review & Bull Ranch Excursion, Sunday, November 4th.

After breakfast, we’ll be conducting a consult with our surveyors to assess any findings and continue with any necessary field work. In the afternoon, we’ll head out to a working bull ranch for another comida or afternoon lunch. Tlaxcala is a province in Mexico also known for its production of fighting bulls, and we’ll be hosted by a renowned rancher at his extraordinary hacienda. We’ll then head back to our own hacienda for siesta and free time before our farewell dinner and barbecue.

Dates

Our treasure hunt experience will commence with a welcome dinner to begin approximately 8pm at our partner hacienda, on Thursday, November 1st, and conclude on Monday morning, after breakfast, on Monday, November 5th. Participants can elect to depart on Sunday if they choose, and all activities inherent in the experience are optional.
