Who knew over 20 years ago when Dave Miller first visited Mexico that it would become his adopted country.

Since that first visit, Dave has facilitated hundreds of groups traveling in Mexico. It takes a special person to be able to bridge the divide between the to cultures. Equally at home in the typical suburban three bedroom home in the United States or the small block home in a village in Mexico, Dave is that guy.

Join him on his journey and experience Mexico as few have, step by step as he seeks to share the culture, the art, the food and the richest resource of all, the people of Mexico with you.
