Loved meeting the local people and learning their backgrounds. Our guide was knowledgeable and very friendly.
Our Group of 12 Canadian and American visitors really enjoyed a visit with two local Bucerias Artisans and then lunch at a local mom and pop restaurant.
Human Connections Director Maya was an animated and informative host. She started on time and gave a brief history of Mexican work-life and her group' s mission.
During the visits and at lunch she was having to translate into English, but she was quick and proficient and it was no problemo.
This kind of cultural tour and at a very reasonable cost is an ideal way to meet and interact with local Mexicans in their homes and place of business. Very very welcoming and gracious, our new amigos answered all our questions and gave a history of their lives and work experience.
We highly recommend this half day cultural tour which includes lunch.
This was one of the best tours we've done. The office where we left from was a bit out of the way and our taxi driver took a while to find it. We were introduced to 3 different families who all made us feel very welcome. We got a real insight to the local way of life and enjoyed a wonderful typical family lunch. The guide was knowlegable and passionate. We were so pleased to learn that the profits from the tour go to help the local population further develope their culture!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the Bucerias Cultural Day Tour. Highly recommend this well-organized and unique tour. We visited the homes of two artisans: a hammock weaver and welder, and learned much about their lives as well as their craft. We ended our day having a delicious lunch at a local Loncheria, with the freshest salsa, made right in front of our eyes. All the people connected with this tour are gracias, friendly, and inspirational. We plan to book this tour again when we return to Puerto Vallarta in January. The tour guide keeps track of who you have already met, so plans for you to meet different artisans if you return another time.This tour is like none other in the Puerto Vallarta area, and a must-do for those who want a different, non-touristy experience.
Thank you Maya and the others at Human Connection for providing such an amazing experience. Our tour took us to the homes of two local artisans as well as the restaurant of a third family where we enjoyed a delicious traditional meal. I can't imagine a better way of learning about real life in Bucerias and meeting some amazing people. You are all truly making human connections with each tour group.
This is a remarkable look at the lives and products of local artisans. Their stories are great human interest pieces and the crafts cover a wide range. The guide/translator was helpful and knowledgeable. This is a great way to gain insight into lives of local floks.
