I am still always amazed by the power of the Internet. Back in early December, I received an email through my blog from a woman was launching a gluten-free travel business. Little did she know, I not only write Gluten-Free Fun but I also write this gluten-free travel blog. Since I am always interested in learning about gluten-free travel opportunities, I quickly responded to Cate Lazen, founder of Colibri Custom Catered Travel.
Cate takes a slightly different approach to gluten-free travel. Instead of dining out, Cate brings in a world-class chef to prepare gluten-free meals in local accommodations. As a former resident of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, Cate knows the area, culture, and most importantly food that is local and delicious.
Here are some details about Cate’s maiden voyage with Colibri Custom Catered Travel coming later this spring!
Colibri Custom Catered Travel is offering a special discount for its maiden voyage to Travel + Leisure Magazine’s #4 pick for top world destinations: San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. For seven days and nights, travelers with gluten sensitivity and those committed to the organic, sustainable lifestyle will enjoy farm-to-table, organic and GF cuisine and insider guide services from Colibri founder and former San Miguel resident Cate Lazen.
Trip includes all custom catered meals and outdoor adventure, town and farm tours, musical performance, tequila tastings, cultural experiences and more. A spacious hacienda in the middle of the historic center of town provides both private rooms and spacious dining areas under one roof.
