As many of you know my foundation hosts a week of Vocational Camp each summer in Oaxaca. Here’s some pics if you want to take a look. Last summer Chef […]
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.

“Dave” she asked me years ago as I was talking with a friend in Huatulco, Oaxaca, “have you ever eaten at La Toscana?” I had to confess I had not. […]
One of the first members of the Board of Directors for my foundation was a Mexican, American, Baptist, Catholic, Agnostic, Jew. I never knew back then that like America, Mexico has a lot of people with incredible mixed backgrounds. As some call it… Mestizaje. I came across this great read from […]
Mexican food gets a bad rap. Many people struggle to see any way possible for the wonderful food of our neighbors to the south to reach the top echelons of the […]
It’s not really a restaurant. It’s more like a cantina… for corn lovers. When I was in Queretaro recently, I made a side trip to Tequisquiapan, about an hour outside of […]
Traveling for weeks at a time in Mexico, it’s hard not to think of home here in Las Vegas. The struggle for me is that almost as soon as I […]
