What's New For 2013!
Our Culture and Cuisine of Mexico Tours are Expanding! In addition to our Signature Journey: The Culture & Cuisine of Mexico: Traditional to Contemporary, we are proud to announce: Mayan Culture & Cuisine: Yucatan & Campeche. This program will introduce travelers to the singular Yucatecan Maya culture & culinary heritage. We will also explore the fishing & seashore communities of Campeche. These tours are offered as "set departures", but can also be booked as private excursions with 4-6 minimum. These journeys explore the early & regional foods of Mesoamerica. Following a regional and historic trajectory we trace the food and culture of Mexico; in Oaxaca, Puebla, Mexico City and now Yucatan & Campeche. We begin with a focus on the traditional and end with innovative, world renowned chefs of Mexico!
Join us to witness one of the true marvels of nature, the winter home of the migrating monarchs! They travel over 3,000 miles each year to the very same location in the high forests of Michoacan. It was not until 1974 that scientists learned of their destination. The local people knew this for years, but now that the word is out, they are protecting these forests for the butterflies. Members of the local community lead tourists into the mountains to see this spectacle of nature; millions of butterflies clustered in trees or flying about, depending on the temperatures and time of your visit. We are going in early March!
