Aaah Copper Canyon...one of the most majestic and fascinating destinations we offer. Think local villages with Raramuri barefoot running Indians, one of the world's great railways that took 100 years to build, and a laid back and welcoming vibe--you will love it. We go often, our guides are the best, and you can add on the Sea of Cortez or a lonely beach in Baja at the end. Amazing.

What makes these AuthenticMexicoTravel trips so unique?

We offer the best in enriching, cultural, fascinating journeys for small groups of curious travelers.

Our trips take you to the unknown places, the little villages, and memorable spots. We use the best of hotels and off-the-path eateries. You travel with like-minded people who value discovery. Our team values the authentic, thrives on excellence, and is always collaborating with locals to make the trip great.

Our focus is on experience, not covering ground or checking things off a bucket list. Travel+Leisure mag calls trips like ours "sightskipping"- great concept! People often travel with us multiple times because they value the focus on actually tasting, hearing, and feeling the vibe of a place. So we don't do tours- we do personal experience.

There is always a plan for our trips and it is communicated clearly. But we are committed to being sure that the trip flexes as needed to engage the interests of the group. Local opportunities often pop up and we embrace them. Interruptions happen and we always have a plan B to keep things moving.
