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.

Normally those of here at Dave Miller’s Mexico are usually found sipping Mezcal, our preferred libation when we are in Oaxaca. But, as luck would have it, recently we passed […]
This year the Guelaguetza, described by some as the most colorful fiesta in all of Mexico, will be held on Monday July 20 & 27 in Oaxaca City. There is […]
“They beat us and left us for dead!” That is how Gaspar Chablé Camaal, one of my partners, and a dear friend in Oaxaca, described what happened last weekend in […]
It was 1995. Needing to get to Guadalajara and short on cash, I decided to take the bus from Tijuana. Little did my friend, or I know that we were […]
