As otherothers suggest, and coming also from a Latin culture, where parents are overly protective of their "kids"...the situation smells strongly of a misguided chaperone attempted hijacking of your time alone in a trip. Will the mother also will have then "problems" with the accommodation? Who knows.

As for a possible compromise...if you have space problems now, so much more in the way back, for returning with shopping or souvenirs. One possible way of compromise if you do not want to say no, is giving the mother a lift, on the premisses she returns by her own means. However this arrangement can backfire with some "emergency" on the way back.

IMO theThe mother has to stop seeing her daughter as a child, and it is up to you both to start establishing boundaries and having your own space. I would stand my ground, with no lies. Your gf has to have the maturity to say to her mother that you both need and deserve this time alone, and that she ought to respect that. As an added benefit, you are setting a precedence you should started being respected as independent adults.

IMO, youYou both need this trip to start building up your memories, and bonding. Stand your ground. Do not let yourself be manipulated under the guise of keeping "good relations". You will have a lot of time for establishing a relationship with your in-laws.

Contrary to what others say, this trip is not to be taken that seriously, and it is to be taken shortcuts, pauses, knowing new places and people, and having lots of fun, time permitting. I also did that on my time, and those trips are certainly not in my list of regrets. Carpe diem.

PS. Coming from a similar Latin culture, my parents, and especially my mother can be pretty possessive , manipulative and outright mean if I let them be, on situations that involve me and another woman, even still today well in my 40s - and believe me I had already a fair enough share of "official" gfs that they knew.

As a male "child", I do remember having an huge fight with my mother when I was 21 for she not be chaperoning me and my gf who was 26 at the time. I regret the outcome of the fight, but not the principle per se.
