About México Vacation Tours
MexicoVacationTours.com is owned and operated by Discover Veracruz Tours, LLC., a recognized U.S. limited liability company created in 2007 with offices in Illinois and Veracruz, México.
We are also members of the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA) and work closely with the Mexico Tourism office.
The owner and director is Mike Vondruska. Since 1996, he has been traveling repeatedly to México to learn more and more about their regional customs, rich history, and its extensive geographic diversity. Over the years, Mike developed a special affection for the pristine outdoor beauty, time honored traditions, and the local good-natured people he discovered all throughout the country of México.
Mike’s goal in creating México Vacation Tours – To introduce intrepid travel vacationers to explore the many incredible and diverse regions found outside of the well-publicized México coastal resort areas.
Most foreigners are only familiar with México’s sun & sand places like Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, and Cabo San Lucas mainly because of all the advertising through print, billboards, major tourism companies, and of course, travel agents. All-inclusive resort package deals are found all over the internet and on colorful posters and brochures at travel agencies.
Mike and his staff always tell people if they want to go to an all-inclusive México resort, talk to a travel agent. If they want to see the “REAL” México, then talk with us.
Our small group trips are always lead by knowledgeable bilingual host guides who are from México. After all, who knows a place better than the people who live in the area.
On our Mexico Vacation Tours website, you will find a variety of different styles of vacation trips to accommodate many interests. Some of our tours are geared to entice the most adventurous adrenaline-seeking enthusiasts and some were designed for those who were just looking for a peaceful laidback and un-crowded “real” México cultural experience. We also help travelers to custom design their own special México trip based on their vacation time frame and interests.
Whether your vacation preference is to stay in one or two places during your trip and spoke out from there each day to explore or you like the idea of a México Road Trip where you will be visiting many cities and places along a route, we are your “go to” source for making it happen.
Mike Vondruska along with his support staff, and local knowledgeable and fun bilingual tour guides are all dedicated to helping you to create a most enjoyable, memorable, eco-friendly, and adventurous (or laidback) México vacation.
We are here to serve you!

Why Travel With Us?
In 3 words, the reason to travel with us is because, quite simply … WE KNOW MEXICO!
Owner & director, Mike Vondruska and his staff have invested considerable time traveling throughout the Mexican countryside and many of the small to large cities to search for the best local tour providers who have the most interesting places to explore and outdoor activities to enjoy.
We then actually go on their trips to insure that their professionalism is up to high standards. In many cases, we work with these local México tour operators to help tweak their itineraries and give them ideas on how to create even better guest care services.
So as you can see, we are very aggressive when it comes to providing an interesting, fun, and memorable itinerary combined with attentive guest services, and most importantly, attention to your safety. Every trip we advertise on this site has already been personally “screened” by one of our staff.
For more information about our relationship with these local suppliers, please read our Terms & Conditions statement.
Here are 3 More Reasons Why You Should Book With Us!
#1 We only promote tours to the many interesting regions found in the country of México
Many of the huge tour companies advertise pages and pages of trips which may span the entire world. Sounds good, right? But did you ever wonder how they can really be intimate “experts” on everywhere? If you look at our portfolio of diverse cultural and adventure tours, you won’t find trips to a multitude of countries. We don’t pretend to know the best places to go in every country under the sun.
Instead, we only focus our expertise solely on one country; México.
We decided to laser target our efforts to really find the best of everything throughout the country of México. Then we went a step further to uncover those hidden gems, those off-the-beaten-path places that most people don’t know about.
It might be experiencing a local traditional festival in a small Mexican village, finding ancient carvings on rocks located just off the main road, knowing about a rancher who will take people on a rustic horseback trail ride, or finding the best vantage point for a sweeping view of a magnificent valley below.
When you specialize in just one country, you can really become a trusted source for historical, cultural, and adventure travel for those who would like to visit.
#2 All our knowledgeable bilingual guides are from México
After all, who is more qualified to lead you on a cultural and adventure vacation than someone who knows the area intimately because they live there.
Our native guides know about the local customs, traditions, and the best places to visit. They know the local delicacies and what’s growing in the fields alongside the roads. They know where the good restaurants are located and where the best places are to get some icecream. In other words, our México guides know much more about the area you will be visiting than a foreign guide will ever know. On our trips, you may even get invited to meet your guide’s family and friends.
Our local guides are proud of their country and are honored to be your host when you come to visit them. Over the years, they have received many great reviews from our former travel guests about how knowledgeable, fun, and attentive they had been as a guide.
#3 Small Group Tours of 2-5 and 6-14 Travelers
It could be you and your significant other, you and your family, you and your friends, or you and some other like-minded “soon to be friends” who have that same intrepid spirit of adventure and wonder as you do. With a small band of travelers, there will be a more relaxed feel to your trip. Your local host guide will be much more accessible for answering your questions and catering to your needs. The transition from visiting one place to another should be much smoother as it is more unlikely that you will have to wait for stragglers which happens more frequently when you are a part of a large tour group. Small group travel is the best way to go.
Note: That being said, many of our trips can accommodate a larger group size. So if you do happen to have a group of more than 14 people, we can set up your trip with 21 passenger Sprinter vans and if necessary, comfortable and modern coach tour buses with larger seating capacities. FYI – Our biggest tour group to date has been 74 people.
Whether you decide to go on one of our advertised tours or let us help you custom design a special interest trip, know that you will be in good hands. You can look to MexicoVacationTours.com to be your Best Trusted Source for México Travel Exploration Vacations.
The wonders of México are waiting for you. We would be honored to show you around.
About Our Guides
All of our English/Spanish guides are natives of México. We believe the best way to really take in the “flavor” of the regions you are visiting in México is to have a guide who lives, works, and plays there. Your guide will be intimately familiar with the areas you will visit. They will know the history of the region, the foods you will eat, and may even know the names of many plants, trees, and the wildlife you encounter.
Depending on your trip itinerary, you may also be led by local specialty guides such as certified scuba instructors, fishing guides, ATV guides, river rafting guides, anthropologists, historian, horseback guide, experts in growing orchids or coffee or vanilla or . . . you get the idea.
A big plus is that OUR GUIDES ARE FUN! They will treat you like a friend and in no time at all, you will be enjoying each others’ company. Over and over again, our past travel guests have given many glowing remarks after traveling with one of our tour guides.
You book the Sun & Sand Resort places and let us help you book the rest of México.
