Baja winery hop

10 am Saturday July 20
$178.23
Sold out

Eighty miles from the border lies the Valle de Guadalupe wine country, a cluster of some 150 vineyards scattered between the hills between Ensenada and Tecate. Often referred to as the Napa of Mexico, it's increasingly perking the curiosity of oenophiles from near and far.

Given the distance and rural terrain, we'll be forgoing our usual mode of bus transportation for a van with space for 12.

Tickets include roundtrip border transportation, tastings at three wineries and dinner at celebrity chef Roberto Alcocer's famed Malva.

The group meets on the Mexico side of the Pedwest border crossing curbside near the cabs and Ubers at 10 a.m., with an estimated return to the border at 9 p.m.

Tijuana waterpark trek!

Tambora bands, corn on the cob on the grill, Tecate eagle fake tattoos, a Tarzan rope.

'¡Pescado, por favor!' Tijuana fish taco tour

11 am Saturday Aug 24
$85.39
Tickets

From its home-cooked origins in the kitchens of Ensenada to the tables of top restaurants around the globe, the fish taco has come a long way. But be it the battered-and-fried classic served curbside with an agua fresca or a posh reworked take paired with a craft cocktail, nothing encompasses the unique flavor of Baja California like the almighty fish taco.

Join us in retracing the evolution of this local culinary staple with stops at three different Tijuana eateries, each serving its own unique incarnation of fish taco.

Tickets include roundtrip border transportation, courses and a beverage of your choice at each restaurant (two of the three spots boast an excellent roster of craft cocktails and local beers) and dessert at an artisan ice cream parlor with more than 80 handmade flavors.

The group meets on the U.S. side of the Pedwest border crossing at the Virginia Avenue Transit Center at 11 a.m., with an estimated return to the border at 5 p.m.


Tijuana market hop + street eats trek

10 am Sunday Aug 25
$45.30
Tickets

On Sundays, the hilltop streets of Tijuana are filled by swapmeets so massive — blocks and blocks of vendors selling mountains of the most random secondhand loot. Even if you make your way out of the bargain bin maze without dropping a single peso, you’ll walk away having lived an essential Mexican experience: the mercado.

Each market is also home to some of the city's most-mouthwatering street eats, which is why we like to tout our monthly market hop "a food tour in disguise."

We'll do stops at some of Tijuana's most iconic markets, from flea to folk: the city's longest-running swapmeet, the Mercado de Artesanías crafts market, Mercado Miguel Hidalgo, the city's oldest open-air farmers market, and locals'-only boutiques in downtown's Pasaje Rodriguez and Pasaje Gomez.

Tickets include roundtrip border transportation and complimentary pan dulce upon arrival.

The group meets on the U.S. side of the Pedwest border crossing at the Virginia Avenue Transit Center at 10 a.m., with an estimated return to the border at 5 p.m.
