UX retreat to Valle de Guadalupe, in Mexico's wine region (2 hrs south of San Diego).
Join us for your choice of a 1 day or 3 day adventure to explore culture and community in our broader region.
This Meetup is to signup for 3 days, as in a long weekend.
If you want to attend for a single day, signup here: https://www.meetup.com/s-d-x-d/events/261185402/
Friday afternoon, we'll meet to cross the border and catch a group bus down to Valle. We'll stop on the way at a beautiful lookout, grab some dinner and meet up with the group at the house. We'll tell scary UX stories over a fire, write a dissertation on the user experience of Mexico's wine, do a workshop, eat well, and come back on Sunday with more friends than what we left with.
A heads up to dog owners: make sure you have someone let your dog out—3 days is a long time to wait on their momma. The border can be tricky, last time we left at 9 got back at Midnight.
We'll update the details as the date gets closer.
Cost: We are staying at a ranch surrounded by 5 acres of vines.
We're expecting the ride to be $120 covers the ride with your very own shared driver—yes you get a chauffeur!
Note: you must have a passport to participate.
