$495 is the cost of the 2021 trip (reduced price for ages 13 and under) which includes food, room, and board. Additional expenses would be food on travel days and any souvenirs you want.
We provide separate dorms for men and women and each come with bunk beds, bedding, heat/AC, and showers/ bathrooms. Our dorms our located on local church property that is fenced in and locked each night.
Food + Drink
Each dorm room and our cafeteria have water coolers with filtered water.
While in Mexico, you will enjoy local food cooked by our staff. One night we will go out to eat and experience a local Mexican restaurant (and maybe indulge in some churros if we are able!) The nights of our fiestas, we will eat the food that is being served at the fiesta.
Even though San Luis RC gets extremely hot in the summer, the winters can be fairly chilly. The highs during the day are from 60-70 F and the lows are from high 30s to 40s. The climate in the Sonoran desert where we are located is generally dry and arid.
