International & Non-mainland US

Mainland Mexico

LaQuebrada-Acapulco-Cliffdivers-thumb

Deep into Mexico, the Pacific Mainland Coast is often times overlooked as a cultural center. Emerse yourself in the rich latin history and culture through authentic food, dance and historical sites. Explore some of the largest Mayan pyramids and the intricate waterways of Zochimilco that have been used for hundreds of years… Meet and help indigenous people as they live today in remote areas of Mexico. Experience sunsets, surf and beaches that take your breath away. As a special treat, we often visit during Day of the Dead (November 1 and 2nd) which is a beautiful tradition of Mexicans honoring those who have passed away with beautiful alters, decorations and special ceremonies. Visit Mexico with us and see the true beauty of this culture.

Bali, Indonesia

An exotic, far away place filled with kind people, rich culture and amazing scenery. Experience a once in a lifetime journey to a place so beautiful that with each new vista, your breath catches – throughout your tour and later, as you remember. Experience cultural exploration, dance, hiking, surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, sailing and yoga. Visit nearby Komodo Island and see the unique Komodo Dragons in their only natural habitat in the world. Sail to nearby Lombok island and explore a volcano surrounded by beautiful beaches. Bali offers a remarkable array of even more adventures to choose.

Komodo Island, Indonesia

An optional part of our Bali Adventure, we can take you to trek with the worlds last dragons, the Komodo Dragons.  This is a very remote adventure which requires you to be comfortable with extensive boat rides and rustic boat cabin accomodations.  It is a remote, amazing experience to see up close and personal these majestic animals, probably the closest to a current day living dinosaur.  Because of the hiking, and remoteness of the islands,  we require average fitness level and health.  Its something you will always remember.
