Mexican Wines, a journey through the unknown north and central Mexico
Actually, one imagines Baja California as a barren desert peninsula – rugged Pacific coasts, spectacular cactus fields and inhospitable foothills of the vast Sonora Desert. The same is true for large parts of the inner Mexican states of Coahuila, Zacatecas, San Luis Potosí, Queretaro, Guanajuato and the small Aguascalientes. What they all have in common is excellent wine production, which mostly finds its buyers in the country itself and therefore rarely enjoys the attention of the international public – and quite unjustifiably so. Baja California The wine region Valle de Guadalupe is located in northern Baja California and is also known as the Valley of Calafia. The climate is Mediterranean with very hot, dry summers whose nights are tempered by a cooling coastal wind. The mild autumn is followed by a rainy season between November and March. So the conditions here are ideal for growing grapes, and have been for more than 100 years. There are now over 150 wineries in the valley, most of which are open all year round. In a relaxed, rustic atmosphere, you can enjoy fatastic Mexican wines with a view of the vineyards. The wine production of Sergio Castañeda Piña and his family only began […]
Traveling as family, synonym of union
The union that surrounds Mexican families is completely unique in the world, for a home there is nothing more valuable than the members that make it up. Mexico appreciates very much the family value in different areas, but when taking a trip, it becomes much more special, so surely you wonder, what recommendations can I receive? What places should I visit? Therefore, we will share some recommendations we think might come in handy. Mexican traveling in Mexico? Versatility. The needs of children will not be the same as those of an adolescent and in the same way, an older adult will not seek the same thing as an adult athlete adventurous. I recommend making a consensus to verify what each member of the family wants. Create memories. Once the journey begins and the adventures begin, everyone will be creating moments that they will treasure forever, that is why each situation must be taken with positivism, even if it is a bad situation because each memory will be an anecdote of the trip. Mexico is completely full of wonders that will make us enjoy any trip, although they do not happen exclusively to Mexicans. That is why we include some points […]
If you aim for the sun, México is the right choice
Since decades ago, México has figured in the list of most visited countries in the world, and that has not been a fluke. The undisputed natural beauties of México, as well as its deep historic wealth of more than 4000 years, its touristic appeal, its gastronomy, its bountiful cultural heritage, and more than 11000 km of coast, have helped to the development of a strong touristic industry which, for the first time in history, amid a terrible pandemic, placed México in third place of the most visited countries of the world during 2020. As if that was not enough, México has a privileged climate that is mostly sunny all year round thanks to its location between the equator and the tropic of cancer. Those who look for warm winters will find in México a plethora of options. Majestic colonial cities ―some of them declared World Heritage by the UNESCO―, colourful Magical Towns, sophisticated beach destinations, real indigenous towns where time has stopped, natural reserves, archaeological sites, more than a hundred museums ―just it Mexico City alone, and many more along the country!―, theme parks, mayan sinkholes, underground rivers and caves are just some of the many locations you can visit […]
Tour Operator or Destination Management Company/DMC?
Does it really mean a big difference? Conexstur managed to get the registration of ¨Tour Operador¨ in Mexico in 2016 when Enrique de la Madrid was the Tourism Minister of Mexico. We had to explain the difference between a Travel Agency and a Tour Operator. ¨Tour Operador Receptivo¨ still has another aspect which makes a big difference: Taking care of international tourists arriving in your country, managing the special requests in different languages, and taking into consideration the very different expectations from foreign clients. The organization of either leisure travel for individuals or groups, business travel, Incentive travel, or special events – when contracted from another country, the organization and supervision of all services are YOUR responsibility. It is a 24/7 service and preciseness is one of the most important key factors to become a reliable and confident partner in Mexico. Only the Association of Conexstur is firm with this restriction and belonging to this association means that the tour Operator has a minimum of 80% of the total business with an international clientele. Also, managing US Dollar accounts, taking the risks of exchange rate instability, and register as a company whose main business is the exportation of tourism services. […]

It was at the end of September 2019, when Mexico received the great news: again, a Mexican entity was named American Capital of Culture, and the state of Zacatecas won the title for 2021. After 5 times for an entity in Mexico already, now as 6th time, the state of Zacatecas with its hononimous capital was chosen by the Bureau of American Capital of Culture, after this title had been given 2 times already to Mérida in Yucatán (2000 & 2017), as well as once each to Guadalajara in Jalisco (2005), to the state of Colima (2014) and to San Miguel de Allende in state of Guanajuato (2019).
