At age 15, Jeana Dunphy visited Mexico and Guatemala. This began a love affair with Mexico and travel that has lasted a lifetime.

Jeana pursued a career in ballet, dancing with the San Francisco Ballet and as owner and director of her own ballet school and ballet company for 25 years. She always took time, over the years, to travel the world. In 1999, she began a career in the tourism/travel industry.

Since that time she has been a Cruise Director with Holland America and Cruise West and a Tour Director for Collette Vacations, Cruise West and Uncommon Journeys, leading tours in 6 countries

Jeana’s experience in Mexico is vast. She has created and lead 23 different tours in Mexico and Guatemala doing them numerous times.

In San Miguel de Allende, she began her first year of living in Mexico as an “expat”. After living in Mexico for over 20 years, Jeana has returned to her family and the US but still travels Mexico, Guatemala and now Colombia.
