Trip Planning

If you’re interested in trip planning, our community has tens of thousands of Matadorians in hundreds of cities and – at last count, more than 80 – countries around the world. We’ve produced award-winning guides on everything from backcountry trails in the Sierra to obscure dive bars and food carts to super luxury hotels and rooftop bars.

We’ve also crowdsourced our community to find answers to some of the simplest but most important trip planning questions, such as the best time to visit and the over-hyped places / activites you should avoid.

We also have basic transportation guides, budget guides, and special notes on crossing borders.
