La Puerta del Camino Real
The Door to Mexico's Silver Road
March 1 - 16, 2020
La Puerta del Camino Real is the Door to the Royal Road - in reference to the Royal Interior road that stretched for literally thousands of miles to the northern US. Today, this region is scattered with opulent cities and crumbling villages, archaeology sites, and artisan food markets.
Please Note: Travel can come with hiccups along the way - such as flat tires, engine failure, inclement weather etc. While we certainly don't plan on such obstacles, we ask our guests to remain flexible and positive if we are presented with such challenges. This may include waiting by the roadside for help, or having to change itinerary plans for vehicle repairs. This is not a common issue, but please keep in mind that accidents, flat tires, and rainfall can occur at any time.
Arrival/Departure costs to Zacatecas & from Leon are not included.
