2019 Puerto Vallarta
The beauty of Puerto Vallarta is that it offers the best of both worlds: beautiful beaches, but also an authentic, Mexican flair, which is shown off to the fullest extent in the city's Centro and Zona Romantica neighborhoods. In the '60s Puerto Vallarta was a glamorous beach destination, made famous by Liz Taylor and Richard Burton (whose former home has been turned into a super swanky hotel).
The buzz on PV (as the locals call it) quieted down until the past decade or so, as hotel development and attractions have sprung up. It's still among the chillest Mexican beach towns, which is saying something. Plus it's absolutely gorgeous, with spectacular sunsets behind the Bay of Banderas, and lush, jungle-wrapped mountains that tumble down to the water. Along the coast discover the secret, out-of-the-way spots that make you feel as if you've discovered a beach all your own.
We keep each Journey affordable in order to give everyone an opportunity to attend.

Registration starts at $1,950, with 40% due at sign up and the rest due 25 days before departure. All rates are based on double occupancy, with a single supplement available for $420.
September 2019 Cuba
Cuba is hypnotic - from the sultry, seductive streets of Old Havana, to the crystal-clear Caribbean waters, the Music,Art & Dance literally pouring from the streets.It’s a country unlike any other, and one that sits almost preserved in time. Imagine yourself standing on the historic malecon as a parade of vintage, colorful 1950s American cars sweep by. Tuck into heavenly cuisine at one of the many local paladares - private restaurants created right in people’s homes, or sweat it out dancing salsa until the sun comes up. Cuba, and Havana in particular, is captivating, and we couldn’t be more excited to share the journey with you.
