“We have been to Candelaria”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Well, interesting as it is, Candelaria is very hard to find. We had Moon travel book and couldn't follow the directions from a certain point. The roads are very sandy, it is quite remote, and no one speaks English. If you are on an ATV tour, maybe the guide knows about it. We tried a second time with a native who had been there before. With the road improvements, even he had a hard time. Once we found the town, we spoke with the husband of the woman (an American) who teaches native women to do pottery, so they will have a means to support themselves if need be (which is often the case). I had bought some pottery in Todos Santos, and in Candelaria had the opportunity to buy some from the Master! I was thrilled. There really is not much of a town. All I can add is make sure you follow the directions off Rt. 19 if you don't go,the ATV route.

“Very interesting trip”
Reviewed July 31, 2008

This was the highlight of our honeymoon, not the romantic stuff but getting away and seeing how these people lived. Seeing the school projects and the things in this town were very interesting to us. Anyways we would recommend seeing this with the WILD ATV tour that stops in here. Very interesting!
