Why Mexico?

A country so close, yet whose customs are so different from ours; a country of multiple images and stereotypes that bears knowing first hand; a country and people that is much more than its beaches. Mexico is a rich amalgamation of its past and present. Join us on unique trips of discovery to gain a deeper appreciation of Mexico; a country with a complex past, rich present and dynamic future!

Why Colombia?

We believe Colombia is an emerging destination and we are excited to sharing it with you! from Cali in the southwest, to the Pacific Coast, to the Central Coffee Growing Region, to Cartagena and Santa Marta on the Caribbean Coast and to the distant land called “La Guajira”, home to the Wayoo people and a surreal landscape where desert meets ocean, we covered a lot!
