If you look on your calendar tomorrow, it just might say Mexican Independence Day. That’s right. September 16th. Not the 5th of May as many believe. Unbeknownst to many Americans, Cinco de Mayo has absolutely nothing to do with Mexican Independence. That day celebrates the day the Mexican Army crushed […]
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.
A while back I had the pleasure of taking my wife to one of the best and most acclaimed restaurants in Oaxaca City… Casa Oaxaca. Casa Oaxaca is on all the must visit lists for people wanting to experience the gastronomy of this great city. Chef Alejandro Ruiz has definitely […]
Most people can’t tell the difference between a single malt scotch and a Kentucky bourbon, let alone differentiate between tequila and the new hippest drink around, mezcal. I sat down a while back with Cecilia Rios, otherwise known as La Niña del Mezcal and asked her to give me five […]
Guadalajara, Mexico’s City of Roses… and for ten days every September, home to the largest gathering of Mariachis in the world, known as the International Mariachi Festival. Each year thousands of Mariachis come from as far away as Japan and Croatia to participate in this magical celebration of culture, […]
Your plane has just landed, your taxi is waiting and you’ve got three days to spend in one of the jewels of Mexico, Oaxaca. Located in the southern part of the country, Oaxaca is the cultural heart of indigenous Mexico. Home to 16 distinct people groups, the area is awash […]
I watched as the young man, hoping to one day be called a maestro mezcalero waited nervously. He’d come to In Situ, the mecca of mezcalerias where Ulises Torrentera, the Godfather of Mezcal in Oaxaca, holds court daily in his quest to show off some of the finest mezcals in […]
Corn. Perhaps no other food item is as important to Mexico as corn. Think about it… tortillas, tamales, memelas, atole and more. Since the days of the Aztecs, corn has […]
Had a great day with one of the premier Maestro Mezcaleros in Oaxaca, Alberto Morales of San Dionesio Ocotepec. I got to sample a wonderful selection of mezcals from around Mexico and even preview a new special edition that will coming out later this year from Wahaka Mezcal. Check back […]
The sky threatened, the thunder boomed and the lightning crackled across the horizon, but in the end, as it almost always does, the Guelaguetza Parade went off without any serious hitches. Begun in 1932 in Oaxaca, Mexico to highlight the local indigenous cultures, the current celebration has morphed into a […]
