Six journalists from Mexico City and a representative from Volaris airlines visited northern Nevada from May 8-13 to gather information and pictures for travel stories about the area. We kept them busy with plenty of activities and visits to Reno-Tahoe’s excellent resorts.

Above, one of the journalists checks out a glider plane at Soaring NV in Minden. To get a sense of what the rides were like, check out these videos on Travel Nevada’s You Tube channel:

To really experience the wild West, you must ride a stagecoach. Here, Jaime Orizaga of Invertour takes a seat right next to the stagecoach driver.
