The Magic of Mexico

After over 10 years exploring Mexico, we have a lot to share.

Mexico’s magic is varied and spectacular – from deserts to jungles, beaches to forests, Mexico boasts of everything in between. Interested in Mexico? We have quite a few things to share.

Traveling overland in remote parts of Latin America is often slow and arduous, but it’s also immensely rewarding. We’ve learned a lot of things from these travels – things about how to be a better traveler, a better steward, a better guest and even a better human being.

Our 1995 Land Rover Defender, La Poderosa, is an integral member of our team. Learn about her maintenance and mods in Latin America, read about our recent Land Rover Publications, and see our Land Rover photo gallery.

San Miguel de Allende is just the best. I really, really love it and am so grateful to call it home.
