I’m also curious whether I might entice a few folks to venture deeper to visit San Miguel de Allende or las Grutas Tolantongo further south, possibly between Sunday 10/29 and Wednesday 11/01. I’m interested in some outdoor adventures off the bike & open to suggestions for national/regional parks or other attractions.

We have a real de catorce crew. Guanajuato is the place to go if you want to go south. It is Cervantino Festival. An amazing party in an amazing town, for most of October I believe. Call me to chat about both.

Edited, ends on the 29th. Shucks...oh well, my Guanajuato secret stays safe with only the million visitors from all over Mexico each year. http://www.festivalcervantino.gob.mx/

Bob has a lock on Mexico diving. He knows all.

I have a route that is mostly dirt/offroad going to the sinkhole from the hotel.

It is an easy but fun little route and always nice to be off the pavement when possible.

I'm sure it has been mentioned somewhere in the previous 40 pages, but, is a passport card good or should I bring my passport also?

Re: 2017 MexTrek #6, Oct 26th to 29th 2017

I was toying with the idea of heading down to San Miguel de Allende afterwards but don't want to commit yet. I'm a newb to Mexico so wanted to see how Galeana goes before adding days. Having a group going down would probably make the decision easy. I have the week off in case it works out.

If you go, your hotel is Posada de las Monjas. It's on Canal, three blocks west of the Jardin. Gated parking courtyard, cheap rooms. Within walking distance of everything.

Muchas gracias Trice The knowledge and experience of the guides and organizers of this trip just blows me away. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

If we want to run in Mexico as a group of Newbs past 10/29 then we ought to move it off-line (from this thread) at first then to a new thread if we think it is going to work out. I'm good even if it is only 2 or 3 of us.

Re: 2017 MexTrek #6, Oct 26th to 29th 2017

I am arriving early, probably on Monday 10/23 and will likely stay a little longer after the event as well. I am looking to maximize my time in the dirt!

Any other early arrivals or late leavers? I know a few folks are kicking around ideas for after the main party breaks up...

I'm arriving early Wendnesday probably by 10 so I can get my permit. I can't do it online it doesnt accept my vin. If anyone wants to go with me to do theirs let me know I'm a rookie to the process but think I have everything ready to go.
