In 2000, he and his wife, Dorianne, moved to a 400+ year old 18,000-square-foot hacienda in Valladolid, Mexico. They open their home, Casa de Los Venados, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily, for guided tours to raise money for local charities. Venator says it’s a “must see” for tourists both because it’s won four architectural prizes and it sports a collection of Mexican folk art that has been described as of “museum quality.” (For more information and photos, visit www.casadelosvenados.com.) He says two favorite trips of 2018 were to New York City for Hester Turner’s 101st birthday celebration and to Buenos Aires to participate for a second time in the World Travel and Tourism Council’s 2018 International Congress.
