We take you into communities surrounding Puerto Vallarta where you will meet local artisans and learn how they make goods like piñatas, dresses, and tamales by hand. You will also enjoy a unique sampling of traditional foods and a non-touristy perspective of the real Mexico. On top of it all, this is an experience you can feel good about because we use your entire tour fee to support the artisans you meet with interest-free loans.

Our tour of three artisans in Bucerias was completely delightful from start to finish. This is exactly the kind of tourism that I would like to do more of in the future. By connecting with real people and hearing their stories, the world suddenly becomes smaller as we see that we are all in this life together. We were so... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the Bucerias walking tour with Investours. It allowed me a glimpse into what life is like in this region of Mexico. The stories of success and progress were inspirational and I found myself connecting with the artisans even though we seemingly had nothing in common. I also enjoyed learning about the local culture and customs through the... More

I had the privilege of going on two different Investours tours this week, and I had an amazing experience on both. I got to hear the personal and professional stories of six incredible mexican entrepreneurs. I was inspired to hear about what the entrepreneurs have done in their professional and personal lives with life opportunity sets that were much different... More

Investours truly shows tourists that may not know what the culture is like in this beautiful vacation destination the progress that these artisans have gone through in order to become the bright entrepreneurs they all are. I have been on these tours twice in the past year and have been amazed at every artisan. They all have different stories that... More

Having done an Investours one year ago, I was anxious to try another this year. I opted to do the Bucerias Walking a Tour which gave me the chance to visit Bucerias and to again learn from Elly Rohrer, the PV Investours director. We strolled up a river bed, dry this time of year, to our first entrepreneur who does... More

This is the third time I have done a tour with Elly. It is an opportunity to view how the people who live here have succeeded in their lives. How they have overcome obstetrical s, raised their families, contributed to their community. It is an opportunity to experience the "non tourist" side of the community we all love. An experience...

This was our second opportunity to go on a tour with Elly through Investours. We were able to meet with three different business owners, hear their stories, and have a great meal. It is humbling to see how each business owner has built their business over several years, in some cases from barely anything. Through hard work, perseverance, love and... More

The Investour into the work and lives of three people, a fisherman, a clay bowl painter, and a restaurant owner was a fascinating way of learning how some people eke out a living from as little as 50 pesos(ca. $4) to gradually build a business, with the help of micro-financing. We got to go to their homes and experience, first-hand,... More

We brought our adult kids and elementary/middle high school grandkids on this memorable visit to three family businesses which had received interest-free loans to enhance the quality of their lives. The grandchildren experienced making paper flowers and how piñatas are created At another stop we adults were impressed with the energy of a local fisherman who also gave us generous... More
