Mexico Adventures for Spring Break

Hola Mi Amigos,

Welcome to the first of a series of Tuesday Trip Adventures I will be featuring in the coming weeks. This week, I am featuringMexico, our southern border neighbor. It’s home to great authentic food and offers a few of the best destinations in North America.

Baja Surfing Multisport
Surfing – nothing personifies “cool” on the beach like a surfer. It’s not the only reason I decided to take surf lessons years ago, but it might be the most important!

Once I caught my first wave, I was hooked. For a landlocked Rocky Mountain boy like me, the sensation of standing on the surf board and feeling the natural surge of water beneath me harkened back to my first epic day of skiing powder snow in Colorado. That athletic feeling is burned in to my memory forever. Why don’t you create some powerful memories for yourself with a new sport?

A major highlight of our Baja tour is the opportunity to hone your surfing skills and catch your first wave at Los Cerritos beach. In addition, your off-the-beaten-path adventure will visit the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean coastlines of Baja California, Mexico. You’ll experience Baja’s world famous biodiversity and stark geography through a multitude of outdoor adventure activities.

During your seven days, sea kayak through the turquoise waters of the protected bays and beaches of the beautiful Island of Espiritu Santoin the Sea of Cortez, swim and snorkel with sea lions at Los Islotes, and snorkel and relax at exquisite white sand beaches outside of La Paz. You’ll also enjoy the land by hiking both the sweeping seascapes of the rugged Pacific Coast of Southern Baja California and journeying into the Sierra de la Laguna Biosphere reserve. Here, you’ll experience the magic of cascading waterfalls in the spectacular cactus forests of this unique desert wilderness. Enjoy exciting gorgeous mountain biking through rock beds, technical sections, and some challenging descents and climbs.

The trip is rounded out with time to explore a charming Baja fishing village and just relax – or optionally go fishing with locals, go horseback riding, SCUBA diving, or enjoy a tour of local ceramic artists.

Copper Canyon Hiking
Over the last two decades, I read a lot about Copper Canyon. From its famed size – four times larger than the Grand Canyon – to the trail running, hiking, and mountain biking excursions. Most recently, I’ve read Born To Run, the national best selling book by Christopher McDougal. He highlights the simple lifestyle of the Tarahumara Indians who inhabit the far reaches of the canyon and are skilled ultra-distance runners (more about them and minimalist running shoes in a future newsletter).

I think what’s most intriguing about a trip to the Copper Canyon is the opportunity to truly get “off the grid” and explore a location that literally takes a couple days to get to – and that’s just the canyon’s rim. We hike through the deep sections of the immense Copper Canyon network to wilderness campsites perched on canyon walls near remote indigenous family compounds, and visit remote settlements like the native Tarahumara. We’ll camp in tents and enjoy rustic cabins at up to 7,500 feet, explore the 200- year-old frontier settlements of Creel and Cerocahui, and travel by train on the famous Chihuahua al Pacifico railroad. This spectacular train ride features several natural transitions between the dazzling Sea of Cortez and the arid canyons of the Sierra Tarahumara.

So if the grey, cold blast of winter is getting you down, this is the perfect time to book your trip and make sure you get to feel the warmth of Mexico – from the depths of its grandest canyon to the sun splashed shores of its friendly beaches.

Hey – it could be the best Spring Break ever!

In Adventurous Spirit,



I would like to express appreciation to Return On Adventure for an absolutely perfect ten-day trip to Guatemala a couple of years ago.

In 2010, Dean created a three week Alaskan tour for my two sons and me. For all the trips I`ve ever taken in my life, and I`ve traveled quite a bit, this was by far the most customized trip I`ve ever taken. He did a great job of challenging us and catering it to our desires. The whole thing was exquisitely coordinated. — David K. New York, NY
