It’s early in the morning and the cruise ship bus has just dropped you off on Blvd Lopez Mateos, the main tourist street in Ensenada. Or maybe it’s late in […]
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.
We first met the gang from Real Matlatl at the Feria de Mezcal in Oaxaca in 2013. It was there that we had our first chance to sample their Mezcal […]
Some of the best things in life are found close to home. In the case of Ed Draves, our resident taster and identifier of those hidden flavors in mezcal, that means Western New York. For years Ed has been the “wine guy” at Premier Wine and Spirits. He’s also the […]

When you tell people who know Mexico you went to Oaxaca they always ask if you saw Monte Alban and Mitla. For years, those two ancient sites have been seen […]
I went in not expecting much. When you are in Buffalo, New York, apparently Mexican food is not high on their list of what’s important in the world of gastronomy. After all, the town is known for their wings, pizza and of course beer. But I was determined and after […]
Mexican Grill. Seemingly out of nowhere, restaurants claiming to be Mexican Grills are popping up all over the Unites States. I decided to take a look at three of the most visible ones here in the southwest, Chipotle, Qdoba and Cafe Rio and offer my thoughts. All three grills are […]
I love to tell people that to truly experience the uniqueness of Mexico you need to get off the beaten track. Last week I was so far off that track I […]
Totally urban and wonderfully cosmopolitan, Guadalajara, Jalisco is the heart of almost everything the average American knows about Mexico. Mariachis, Charreadas [rodeos], the Jarabe Tapatio, a fantastic dance known to Norte Americanos as the Mexican Hat Dance and of course, Carlos Santana all trace their roots to this area. If […]
Bucket List… the Urban Dictionary defines it as a list of things to do before you die. No matter how you look at it, it comes down to this… what are those off the charts things you want to do or see before you “kick the bucket?” For me, that […]
