TEARING DOWN THE WALLS: GROWING A U.S. COMPANY ACROSS THE BORDER
Industry: Adventure       
Go Hike Mexico - Locally Led Expeditions

(TRAVPR.COM) Mexico, April 9th, 2018 - What do you get if you mix some adventure junkies, Mexican Nationals, an American company, and a lot of tenacity to succeed? You get the website launch of GoHikeMexico.com, an adventure travel startup, with a proven track record of 8x growth and more than 2,000 travelers in two years.

In late 2015, Three friends straight out of college - Daniel Pena a Financial Analyst, Sebastian Rodriguez a Mechanical Engineer, and Moises Vera a Lead Developer - found themselves unhappy with their careers. Though these jobs were good, they were not exactly exciting considering their passion was deep rooted in adventure. They were all friends that knew each other for years from the variety of adventures they would go on together, everything from paragliding to high altitude mountain climbing. 

As they continued on their adventures together, they noticed a need for newbies to get access to equipment.  At that moment, a peer-to-peer outdoor gear rental company was born which quickly evolved into a network of trusted guides. A couple of months after they started offering excursions, they appeared on Shark Tank Mexico.

The company was growing fast, and was in need of tech advisors to scale correctly. They applied to work with Tech Wildcatters, a Dallas business accelerator, and were one of the few startups that achieved 5 out of 5 in levels of growth.  

Once accepted by Tech Wildcatters they incorporated the company in the United States and started doing business in Mexico as LocalAdventures. Growth became the obsession, from 166 travelers in 2016, they closed with more than 1,300 in 2017 and gained more than 200,000 followers on social media.

With those numbers, they received funding from Dallas Angels and Tech Wildcatters to open a branch in the United States. Which brings us to the launch of GoHikeMexico. Now, these Mexican entrepreneurs are creating jobs for Americans as well as getting travelers down to Mexico to share their culture and adventures.

Mexico is a lot more than all-inclusive resorts in Cancun and Cabo San Lucas. There is 6,910 miles of shoreline, most with warm waters and amazing beaches. There is jungle, desert, cenotes, caves, mountains reaching over 18,000 ft. and one of the seven modern wonders of the world. This is the perfect country for American tourism.

GoHikeMexico has focused on trekking and hiking in Mexico, because it is often overlooked in the adventure travel industry. This is an opportunity to educate and share, not only amazing expeditions, but the warmth of the culture as well. GoHikeMexico’s vision is to put Mexico on the map as an adventure travel destination. Travelers will not only go to Mexico for beaches and relaxation, but for the amazing adventures the country has to offer.
