UX Retreat to Valle de Guadalupe

Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico’s wine region, is home to over 100 wineries 2 hrs south of San Diego. Join us for your choice of a 1 day or 3 day adventure to explore design, technology and culture and community in the San Diego boarder region.

Friday afternoon we’ll take our tour bus down to Valle, stopping on the way at a beautiful lookout, then enjoy dinner at Animalón, the best of Mexican cuisine under a 100 year oak tree. We’ll tell scary UX stories over a fire at our ranch lodgings. Saturday we’ll stop at enough wineries to write a dissertation on the user experience of Mexico’s wine. We’ll eat well, and come back on Sunday with more friends than what we left with.
