OUR TOURS (For 30-31 Day Copper Canyon trips, see Short Tours)
This trip will run from Jan 22 to late Feb. The caravan will leave Nogales, making stops at San Carlos, Alamos, Huatabampito (beach), Copper Canyon, Teacapan (beach), Mazatlan & Durango. It includes a 4 day all inclusive train trip up to Copper Canyon with meals, tours & entertainment. This trip also features many other tours and meals. On this trip we will also transit the new Mazatlan-Durango superhighway by bus. This highway is an engineering marvel and one of the worlds most spectacular drives. This trip includes Hotels, Meals & Tours in Durango. You have the option to stay 5 extra weeks in Mazatlan at your own cost and come back with another of our wagon masters. This tour should overlap the Mazatlan Carnival this year. Updates later.
This caravan this season will be a Yucatan & Chiapas loop. It will be about 62 days long. Please note that Fall caravans can run longer if we have to avoid a late season Hurricane (It has not happened so far). In that event you simply pay for the extra RV park days. Departure date is scheduled for Oct 15, 2017 from Laredo, ending on Dec 16th in Nogales. It will actually be a smaller version of our Spring 2018 trip. It will include Zacetecas, Guanajuato, Mexico City, Oaxaca, the Yucatan coast and a lot of Chiapas. Some stops on Spring will be dropped for this one, due to time constraints. This trip will be structured to hit the Yucatan coast as late as possible (late November). This trip will concentrate on Archaeology with beach time as well. Same as with Spring. We are offering an option whereby you would travel with this caravan then spend 3 months on the beach in Melaque, Lo de Marcos or Mazatlan, coming north with our Spring caravan. That would exit you from Mexico in early to late March, making this a whole winter experience.
There will be 2 Spring trips from laredo, Texas and exiting at Nogales or Laredo. They will be great value for the money. They will visit many Mayan Archaeological sites plus a few more stops than the Fall trip. These tripsl include the Monarch Butterfly reserve, not visited on our Fall trip. They will be a bit slower paced due to the extra time. These caravans will be between 80 and 85 days in length and leave Jan 5th & 7th. We hope to have everyone out of Mexico by around April 5th at the latest. One Jan tour is full, we are filling a second. from Laredo, Texas. Due to high demand, we are now planning to run this trip annually. Both the Fall & Spring trips are approximately 8400 Km or 5200 miles. A map of the planned route may be found at MAP. If there is enough interest, we may add Copper Canyon on as an add-on.
