Estimated cost

We are still working on exact costs, but a similar trip last year was around $3,000, which included airfare, lodging, excursions, and some meals.

What we will be doing?

The course and the trip are focused on live entertainment, so we will be touring entertainment venues, meeting with venue staff, and experiencing shows including Lucha Libre (wrestling) and traditional Mexican dance. We will also have a chance to visit cultural and heritage sites throughout Mexico City.
