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.

In May of 2006, school teachers in Oaxaca City staged a protest to demand higher wages. What was originally a peaceful demonstration soon turned into a 6 month nightmare for businesses, tourism and the many people who made their living in the service industry of this United National World Heritage City.

An old friend who was raised in Mexico told me about the day his dad came to him after they had lived in the states for many years. “Octavio” he said, “Tonight we are going out to dinner to a Mexican restaurant. The food will not be Mexican, but it […]
