How We Travel



We believe you need to experience the full range a destination has to offer to really get a taste for a place. Our trips do just that by offering a mix from fine dining to street food; private tastings to happy hours on the town; and organized but with time for adventure.

Each Salt & Wind trip is highly researched and curated with Team Salt & Wind hand-picking each excursion and travel partner. We want to show you all that we love about a place and introduce you to our local friends so you get an insider's view. For some visuals, check our Instagram and stories of prior trips!

Here what our past guests have to say about Salt & Wind Travel:

Sophie E. Baja California Mexico
"Salt & Wind curated a thorough, thoughtful, and unique itinerary with no detail overlooked. From meeting local artists to tasting street food, I left with a newfound respect for a region of Mexico with so much to creativity. Team Salt & Wind is knowledgeable, well prepared and accommodating. I'd recommend this trip to anyone looking for an adventure off the beaten path." - Sophie E.
Nicole C. Baja California Mexico
"As a native Angeleno, I've driven to Mexico countless times but never stopped in Tijuana or the wine country.  And I probably never would have had I not joined this Salt & Wind trip. The itinerary opened my eyes and my taste buds to the incredible food and wine just across the border. I'm so grateful to Team Salt & Wind for showing me even more of what glorious Mexico has to offer. I'll be back with friends!!"  -Nicole C.
Trina A Baja California Mexico
"Salt & Wind exceeded my every expectation by offering insider's access to Tijuana and the nearby wine country. I have been a strict vegetarian for almost 30 years and I can truly say that, for the first time ever, I didn't need to break open even one protein bar. The staff went out of their way to make sure I was included, full, and happy at every single meal. In addition to the food, we explored local craft beer, markets, vineyards, boutiques, and even an art gallery - where I scored an incredible piece from an emerging Tijuana artist! I was so impressed with this Salt & Wind trip; I can't wait to book my next. I know every detail will be taken care of and I can just pack, show up and have an amazing and memorable experience." - Trina A.
