Welcome to Flip Flop Nomad Tours

Day trips and multi-day tours of the Costalegre and throughout Mexico.

Based in Melaque, Jalisco, we offer cultural and historical guided tours around Mexico. Our departure points include Melaque, Manzanillo, and their neighbouring towns, as well as Guadalajara and the Chapala area. Our tours can be from 1 or 2 people up to large groups depending on your wishes, budget or plans. We have set itineraries for all of our tours, and they are all fully customizable to your timescale and wishes too. If you are in the country in the summer when there are not as many people visiting the area and want to travel then we can help you out too.

We also offer various travel services and are happy to help and offer any advice you may require during your stay in Mexico. As we always have been, we are open year round if you want to drop in to chat, plan a tour or just get some ideas.

We look forward to hearing from you and travelling with you soon!
