Sample Itinerary & Hotel Accommodations

Each of our trips are a bit different so we don't have a one-size-fits-all itinerary. That said we work with the same hotel and transportation partners to guarantee quality service. And you can be assured all itineraries will always have first-rate food, market tours, wine tasting, some shopping, art, yoga, and a few surprises. Need some more visuals?

Hotel Accommodations

 

La Villa Del Valle, A Country Retreat

Opened 10 years ago by an English couple who left their music industry jobs to move to Mexico, La Villa Del Valle is the original boutique hotel in the Valle de Guadalupe wine region. During Salt & Wind trips, we buy out all six rooms at La Villa Del Valle so you can make like you live in a wine country villa. As one of the Valle de Guadalupe’s premiere boutique hotels, the property has sweeping views, a pool, a sprawling garden, a yoga studio, and a filling breakfast. And, they have one the best restaurants in Latin America and a winery on site. 

 
 

One Bunk Tijuana

Opening April 2017, you'll be among the first guests at Tijuana’s first-ever boutique hotel. Between the minimal design, thoughtful decor, and just 8 rooms, you'll feel like you're staying at your stylish friend's apartment. When it comes to comfort, the hotel has it with double-paned windows, Casper mattresses, A/C, wifi, and 24-hour security. And its location in the heart of the city means you can walk to craft breweries, boutique shopping, some great food, or just snap a photo with the famous zebra-painted donkey!
