Sample Itinerary & Hotel Accommodations

Each trip is unique so we don't have a one-size-fits-all itinerary, but we work with the same hotel and transportation partners to guarantee quality. All itineraries have first-rate food, market tours, wine tasting, shopping, and a few surprises. Need visuals? Check our Instagram and Salt & Wind coverage from prior trips!

Hotel Accommodations

 

La Villa Del Valle, A Country Retreat

Opened just over 10 years ago by an English couple who ditched their Los Angeles music industry jobs to move to Mexico, La Villa Del Valle is the original boutique hotel in the Valle de Guadalupe. During Salt & Wind trips, we buyout La Villa Del Valle so you can make like you live in a wine country villa. As one of the Valle de Guadalupe’s premiere boutique hotels, the property has sweeping views, a pool, a sprawling garden, a yoga studio, and a filling breakfast. And, they have one the best restaurants in Latin America, a food truck, and a winery on site. 

 
 

One Bunk Tijuana

Opened in May 2017, you will be among the first guests at Tijuana’s first-ever boutique hotel. Between the minimal design, thoughtful decor, and just 9 rooms, you'll feel like you're staying at your stylish friend's apartment. When it comes to comfort, the hotel has it with double-paned windows, Casper mattresses, A/C, wifi, and 24-hour security guards. Its location in the heart of the city on the bustling Avenida Revolucion means you'll be within walking distance to everything from craft breweries and boutique shops to raging clubs and the famous zebra-painted donkeys!
