We are 2 active pensioners from the UK. Just been let-down with a long-planned African trip so want to try something different from our usual 3rd.World trips.( Going to India again for 3 months from Dec.) First time in your area.
Thinking of 2-3 weeks in SouthWest U.S. plus possibly fly/drive on for 2 weeks in Mexico( Beach?, somewhere neither too remote nor too touristy). Sept/Oct when the crowds thin out. Prefer experiences over whistle-stop tours on coaches, but only 1 driver so don't want to get worn out with driving. Like scenery, easy hiking, local people and culture, fishing(if feasible), and just enjoying places which are special.. Small & friendly accomm. preferred/better than 5 star . Have to watch the budget a little 'cos of trip length but that is for us to judge.
After all the wasted effort planning defunct Africa trip we need all the help we can get to sort out every aspect quickly and simply.
Long question but a lot for us to find out. Thanks for all help. Best regards, Keagem
