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.

You will probably have to use your GPS to find the place, if you are even brave enough to try it out. When people decide they want Mexican food in […]
