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 are now planning our mushroom tour for 2023 – and it will be in a brand new location we have never visited before: the state of San Luis Potosi, in a region called the Huasteca Potosina. Erik and I spent a few glorious days there years ago and considered it an ideal location for a mushroom tour. Beautiful forests, rivers, waterfalls, hot springs, archeological sites and cozy hotels. Not to mention the stunning city of the state capital, also named San Luis. Somehow it never happened. But next year is the year! We are still researching the best time to go (probably August) and the best locations to visit. Keep an eye out on this page for further news – and we hope to see you next year!
This last August, we finally got to enjoy the long-promised excursion to Hidalgo – “Haciendas, Hongos and Hidalgo.” On the menu were beautiful old haciendas (a spectacular one that served as our hotel one night), unusual waterfalls, interesting rock formations, magic towns, a lovely ancient archeological site, beautiful forests, national parks with scenic splendor – and many hongos.
We identified 248 different species, which you can download here.
Amazing natural sites, such as Los Prismas Basalticos
The amazing hotel in the ruins of the hacienda Santa Maria Regla
We hope that you consider joining us on the next special excursion with abundant mushrooming, comfortable but unique lodgings and great companionship. You can also get more information and meet past participants on our FACEBOOK PAGE.
As always, the Mexican Mushroom Tour for 2023 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 approximately US$2,750 p/p double; $2,950 single (still to be determined).
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 2023.
Sincerely Inviting You aboard,
