As a group of 5 Canadians we wanted to experience the local sights and culture, however with limited spanish, amongst us we know the numbers to nine, can order beer, find a bano and greet people. Through a local contact we were introduced to Avi, we spent the day with him and his assistant Axel. As natives of the area, the boys were able to assist us on our day trip from Barra de Potosi. We had a 15 and 17 year old in our group and thought it would be a great experience for them to use the local transportation. On Avi's suggestion we ventured to Ixapta via the local transportation to Playa Linda Beach area, where there is a turtle, crocodiles and iguana refuge, this was pretty cool! We were able to feed the iguana's which was a neat experience. From there we toured back to Zihuatanejo to shop at the markets, they took us to the tourist markets as well as the local markets, this was interesting to experience! We checked out the bay and the boys explained the fishing boats as well as other interesting local facts. The day was a great experience overall! Avi's english is very good, it was a great learning for all of us, and the teenagers, our two and Axel, got to experience some cross training on english and spanish..... We would highly recommend Avi as a tour guide!
