The Guru Difference

Mexico Guru is a website created by two female Mexico lovers, a travel writer and a webmaster. We live in Mexico and have been exploring the country, between the two of us, for more than 50 years! Unlike many travel sites these days, we actually visit the places we write about. Stick with the Guru for the real scoop.
