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.

It’s a Mezcal Monday, so let me start by saying this… I love mezcal. Especially artisinal mezcal. I think the beauty of mezcal is best embodied by the men […]
Here’s a nice story about the Ramirez family in Los Angeles and how together, they deal with issues of race and culture and rapidly changing demographics in America. It’s an issue bound to be part of more and more discussions as the US marches towards the 2016 elections in November. […]
It’s the big day. You’ve been practicing for months and now the race is about to begin. Leading up to the start of today’s race, you received lots of encouragement. […]
I grew up in the shadow of Los Angeles in the mid 1960’s. Think the heart of the San Gabriel Valley. In addition to tons of amigos, there was something […]
