Fine print: We don’t like or even have much fine print. But you need to know that our itineraries are never guaranteed. Sounds crazy but it is actually the secret to the excellent edge our trips have. Here is how it works: Usually they change a bit on the trip and as the group agrees, they turn out better than originally planned. Hotels listed are not certain to be the ones for your trip. Sometimes we change to equivalent hotels for various reasons. Also while our trips are not rigorous, sleep on the ground tours, there is walking and activity involved—so walk for a few miles every day the month before your trip. Most importantly, no whiners… so bring your sense of humor and have fun!
MEXICO: SAFE. ENCHANTING. GET THERE.
