Mexico -- a country so close, yet whose customs are so different from ours; a country that is much more than its beaches. Using many colorful photographs and anecdotes from past journeys, you can visit this intriguing country through Stephanie's eyes. Tia Stephanie Tours designs and leads small group cultural journeys to Mexico, focusing on folk art, people and customs, pre-Hispanic civilizations, flora and fauna. Stephanie will provide an introduction to the landmarks, cultural traditions and beauty that is Mexico. Tia Stephanie Tours combines education with off-the-path itineraries and is designed to build greater understanding and appreciation of the richness and complexity of Mexico and the Mexican people.

She has a BA in Political Science/International Relations, a Certificate in Latin American/Caribbean Studies from Florida International University, and a Masters Degree in International Management. Stephanie has traveled extensively throughout Mexico and, given her fluency in Spanish, has gained access to many off-the-path locations and communities.
