Whole Mexico Loop (click "interest" button above to sign up)

Join us for this trip of a lifetime with our 3 month "whole Mexico loop" in the Spring of 2020. We will explore Mexico's Colonial Interior then head for the Caribbean coast and the Yucatan, exploring both well known Mayan sites and many that tourists seldom visit, like the remote - impressive ruins at Calakmul, near the Guatemalan border. All your RV parks are covered, plus many meals & tours. We will end the trip with some relaxing beach stays on the west coast.

tulum

We will cruise on Lake Bacalar, sometimes referred to as the Maldives of the Americas, swim in jungle rivers & sink holes, witness thousands of bats emerge from a cave at sunset and observe strange religious practices in the highlands of Chiapas. We will stay at an orphanage in Chiapas. On our last trip we raised enough money to supply it with an extra fridge and a washing machine. We will visit one of only two petrified waterfalls on the planet and enjoy west coast beaches.

mela

In San Patricio Melaque, we will witness what may be the best St Patrick's festival in the world (according to some Irish web sites), with a fireworks display that needs to be seen to be believed. The 2020 Yucatan Caravan leaves Mission, Texas on Jan 5th, 2020 (border crossing) and returns via Nogales, Az, first couple of days in April. The itinerary below is more or less final, there may be some minor alterations. Price is $13,500 Canadian or $10,250 US. This trip does involve a bit more dry camping than others, however it is our most interesting route. See more photos below itinerary

The trip is in English, but Wagon Masters are fluent in English & French, so it is also open to Francophone's who can understand & speak a moderate amount of English.

Spanish lessons may be offered en route if we have a fluent Spanish speaker along. We expect this tour to fill fairly quickly. The 2020 Airstream Club trip is already full. Wagon Masters for this trip are expected to be Michel & Louise Bacque. They have done this trip as customers and are leading our 2019 Airstream caravan. Mike likes to have contact with participants a couple of months before each trip so we will put you in contact once you have signed up.
