I was recently in Carson City, NV for a couple of days and decided to check out one of best reviewed local Mexican restaurants, the San Marcos Grill. In 2014, […]
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.
For the family who has never traveled in Mexico, to the person who is ready to venture off the typical tourist trail and explore something new, Dave Miller's Mexico brings a unique perspective. It is a perspective gleaned from years of travel and experiences that few will ever match.
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.

Here’s a little something different Dave Miller’s Mexico. If you follow us here, on Facebook, or on Twitter, you know we are more inclined towards mezcal. However, most of Mexico […]
May 5, 1862. It’s a day that will live in infamy. For the beer industry. Many of us here in the states know the day by its more popular name, Cinco de Mayo. And almost as many people who recognize the name also consider it to be the Mexican equivalent […]
Lisa Morehouse of NPR recently published a story on the influence of Chinese food in certain areas of Mexico. In my years of visiting Ensenada, I remember the first time a […]
Hay Tamales! The signs can be seen everywhere across Mexico announcing that you can get one of those little homemade gems at a local casa, or roadside stand. It is […]
Ed Draves of Premier Wine and Spirits, our resident “official” mezcal taster, as if we ourselves don’t also imbibe, really fell for this mezcal. Whether it was the stylized owl, the price point, the taste, or a combination of all of those, he is very high on El Buho as […]
With a lengthy stay in the hospital behind me and my strength coming back each and every day, it’s time to start thinking about Mexico again. And, as you can […]
