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 by far our favorite experience in our three annual visits to Mexico. What a unique opportunity to see behind the scenes of Mexico's artist community and tourist scene. We came away feeling blessed to have been invited into the homes of some very dear families and learn more about their stories and their culture. It's truly an uplifting... More

This was the highlight of our trip! It was heartwarming to meet three families working their hearts out to get ahead. We love and respect the people in Mexico and want to support this organization moving forward. Thanks to all the staff! I will wear my t-shirt with pride and have and will tell others about your great work.

Great experience meeting artisans and being welcomed into their homes. I loved hearing their stories of how they decided upon their crafts and put their talents to work and why they sell where they do and how fortunate they allowed us to visit them.

This is like no other tour I have taken ever! Human Connections currently works with 12 or so artisans and during the tour you visit 3 of them at their places of business. The tour varies the artisans so you can go on it more than once and have a totally different experience. On my tour we saw firsthand how... More

I've had the priviledge of experiencing 2 Human Connection Tours and a Cooking Class in beautiful Bucerias. Each one offered a unique glimpse into the lives of very special and talented local artisans and cooks. We were warmly welcomed into each home and business and encouraged to engage and enjoy the people and experience. A truly enlightening, humbling and inspiring... More

We loved this tour experience - it provided us a chance to see some of Bucerias that we would not be able to otherwise, meeting interesting and inspiring local people and eat incredibly delicious food from a restaurant we would never have found on our own!

Tourism at it's finest!! The artisans we met were so friendly and willing to share their stories. There is no pressure to buy anything as the money that you pay for the trip goes to the families you visit and local education initiatives.
