The Council's autumn visit to the heart of Mexico offers an astounding exhibition of history across the centuries.

GuanajuatoOur October 31-November 4 itinerary includes Centro Fox, San Miguel de Allende (established in the 16th century) and Guanajuato, named a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1988.

While Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende represent elements of the modern era founded on progress in previous centuries, Centro Fox is a creation of the 21st Century.

Created by Vicente Fox, president of Mexico 2000-2006, it is more formally known as The Vicente Fox Center of Studies, Library and Museum. President Fox announced its establishment as he was leaving office. His election had been historic. A member of the National Action Party (PAN), he was the first opposition party president since 1920 and the first candidate in 71 years to defeat the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI).

Council travelers may not only encounter history on this trip, but may also encounter history makers. President Fox enjoys visiting with our Council travelers and showing off his horses and the elements of history preserved at Centro Fox.

And, on the schedule for the first evening is dinner at Granero Restaurant with President Fox and First Lady Marta Fox – a tradition for our Council visits to Centro Fox.
