Mexican Mushroom Tours

...for Fungi Aficionados with a Sense of Adventure

Since 2000, we have welcomed hundreds of mycology enthusiasts - from renowned experts to curious beginners - to our unique mushroom hunting / travel excursions in some of the most fascinating regions of Mexico. Many participants have returned as often as 3, 4 or even 6 times (some have been on more than 10 tours!) to explore different locations with us. We invite you to join us for our well-planned, all-inclusive, small-group adventures in fungi-rich areas that also offer much to the culturally interested traveler.

Hello Mexmushers and fellow fungiphiles. We have now planned our mushroom tour for 2024. As mentioned before, we'll be revisiting Tlaxcala, where it all began back in 2000. Tlaxcala remains the ideal location for a rewarding mushroom tour. Many beautiful forests, fascinating scenery, interesting wildlife and cozy, historical hotels. Not to mention the welcoming city of the state capital, also named Tlaxcala. But this is the FINAL excursion! We will be celebrating our 25th anniversary, the 35th tour and my 80th birthday. It will take place August 3 to 10, starting and ending in Tlaxcala City. If you would like to join us - and it is sure to be an exciting adventure - contact me at mexmush@yahoo.com and I will send you a draft itinerary.

Last year's excursion took place in September in the state of San Luis Potosi, in a region called the Huasteca Potosina. Erik and I had spent a few glorious days there years ago and considered it an ideal location for a mushroom tour - beautiful forests, rivers, waterfalls, forests and cozy hotels. Unfortunately, climate change spoiled a number of our plans. Every day was very hot and humid - but no rain had fallen for two months and we found mushrooms only one day. Regardless, we enjoyed the rivers and waterfalls and fascinating places we visited.

In San Luis Potosi, we stayed in a mushroom hotel!

Who could resist this hotel?

Tamasopo waterfalls

Or these waterfalls?

Edward James Sculpture Garden

And there was also our visit to the magical surrealistic gardens of Edward James in Xilitla.

As always, the Mexican Mushroom Tour for 2024 will include all of your transport, accommodations and meals (dinners with wine), plus admissions, even tips, etc., after your to/from our gathering and departure points. Your tour cost will be US$3,150 p/p double; $3,350 single.

Most days will include professional mycology Identification Sessions, with discussions and study, with tastings of edibles and other activities, like a glass of wine or two.

Our technical leaders will once again be our two very experienced mycologists, Dr. Adriana Montoya and Alejandro Kong, both superbly knowledgeable, eloquent and friendly, especially to mushroom-lovers and aspirants.

Do let us know if this mushrooming/travel adventure might fit into your plans for 2024.

Sincerely Inviting You aboard,

Erik and Gundi
