About Human Connections
Human Connections offers a completely unique cultural experience. We bring our guests into the vibrant neighborhoods within Bucerias that travelers rarely get to see. There, we visit three different homes and engage with local artisans, tradespeople and food vendors. We spend about an hour with each person, learning the story behind their craft and seeing the "real Bucerias" through their eyes. While you will enjoy an outstanding homemade meal and history about the area, your favorite thing about the tour will surely be the people you meet. They are simply inspiring. This is a tour about progress (not a tour about poverty) that aims to foster cultural exchange and promote local businesses, all the while providing our guests with an once-in-a-lifetime experience.

This was an exceptional tour. We had to drive to Bucerias to the office for Human Connections but from there they provided transportation. We visited in the home of a hammock maker and met his family. We visited a rug weaver who produced beautiful wool rugs. We learned about the process from wool to dyes to weaving. It was fascinating. We finished with a local lunch at a family owned lunchette. It was delicious. It was a lovely day and so interesting. We really felt like we had the opportunity to share a small piece of the lives of others.

I really enjoyed meeting Nallely, Leonarda, and Rolando, and hearing about their work and lives in Bucerias. Claudia was a wonderful host, easily translating conversations and questions. Our lunch was delicious! I look forward to future opportunities to meet Bucerias artisans!

Hi there, thank you very much for your message! Even though we are not hosting tours anymore because of these difficult times, we are already excited for the tours we may host in the future once it is safe to travel again! Our partners will be soo happy to see new faces (or familiar faces too) visiting them hopefully soon this year! Fingers crossed this may happen sooner than later!

Right from the time we walked through the Human Connections Tour doors we were treated with exceptional service and attention. The overview before our tour started was thorough but not overwhelming. Travelling around the Bucerias area in the air conditioned van was really convenient and a way to relax and discuss what we had just experienced. Claudia and Hector, our driver were amazing. They were so good at answering our questions about the people and families we visited along with other general questions about Mexican life for the average citizen. The trip was safe and there was little walking required so people of all ages can enjoy this event. We look forward to visiting them again but taking the longer tour up into the countryside. If you are looking for something different to do, without breaking the bank this tour is for you and your family.

Thoroughly enjoyed our cultural tour with Human Connections. Claudia was an amazing guide, and being able to meet and actually connect with the host artisans was an irreplaceable experience. Furthermore, they were all so welcoming and hospitable! The restaurant also accommodated a vegan meal for me, so that was greatly appreciated. It was the perfect opportunity to continue learning how to become a more responsible tourist. Would definitely recommend to anyone who visits the area - it was very enjoyable and informative. Would love to see this organization pop up around the globe!

It was certainly a highlight of our visit, and plan to take in more of the Human Connections Tours. Such an exceptional exPerience. We found the staff engaging and very respectful and appreciative of all the creativity, workmanship, and willingness of the participants to share their history and passion. We’ve come to appreciate the Mexican people as being so hospitable, humble and joyful.
