Valle de Guadalupe
Eighty miles from the border lies the Valle de Guadalupe wine country, a cluster of some 100 vineyards scattered between the hills between Ensenada and Tecate. Often referred to as the Napa of Mexico, it’s increasingly perking the curiosity of oenophiles from near and far.
Given the distance and rural terrain, we’ll be forgoing our usual mode of bus transportion for a van with space for 12.
Tickets include roundtrip border transport, tastings at three wineries and dinner at Finca Altozano.
The group meets on the U.S. side of the border at the San Ysidro Transit Center at 10 a.m., with an estimated return to the border at 9 p.m.
From Tijuana to Tenochtitlan and beyond. Experience Mexico like a local. Founded by a US journalist in 2009, the core goal of Turista Libre is to see south of the border less like a tourist and more like a local via atypical day trips in and around Tijuana, Mexico City, Monterrey and Ciudad Juarez. You’ll visit museums, markets, concerts, sporting events, parks, breweries, wineries, gastronomic gems, architectural delights and other cultural hotspots, and experience an authentic side of a country and culture unlike any other, free of its obvious cliches.
