Traveling with Sam and Bernie of Cantimplora is like traveling with two new Mexican friends who are in the know. They took us off the beaten path and beyond the touristic traps to show us their México, a land and people they know intimately. I loved the flow of the trip. We had an itinerary but we were also flexible and free. This resulted in memorable experiences and deeper connections with the places and artisans and locals we met. If you're an open-minded, adventurous traveler looking to experience the culture in authentic ways, Cantimplora are your people.
Cantimplora Travel is expertly organized to allow both planned activities and ample time to explore on your own--which I very much enjoyed! For anyone looking to go off the beaten path and truly explore Mexico, this is the trip to take!
We loved absolutely everything about our adventure with Cantimplora Travel. The itinerary had the perfect balance between off-the-beaten-track tours and adventures, and down-time to relax and explore at leisure. The food was amazing, and again a great mix between fine dining and street food experiences. Everywhere we went was carefully curated, and we could never have planned this trip on our own without the amazing insider guides at Cantimplora Travel. The photography is an extra special gift on top of everything else, and we were thrilled with the candid moments that Bernie caught.
Catimplora Travel has proven to be one of the top in the game regarding tourism, mixing good taste with adventure. Also to have a personal photographer gives you time to enjoy fully your surroundings and still get excellent portraits of what you have experienced.
I fell in love with Oaxaca while traveling with Cantimplora. Oaxaca city is so quaint and charming and I loved taking day trips to the surrounding sites such as Mitla and Hierve el agua. Cantimplora offers an authentic experience for travelers looking for adventure!
Sam and Bernie are light-minded, creative and great travel partners. They really know their way around and their recommendations are truly local and worth it.
I've never had professional looking photographs of a trip before. It's definitely something worth a try!
Traveling with Cantimplora's team was a unique experience full of surprises. Leaving our phones and cameras behind was a revealing experience.
You need to live it to believe it!
