Helene is a native Canadian who moved to Puerto Vallarta 15 years ago and immediately began traveling the country with her newly found Mexican friends. Her favorite part of her travels was tasting everything and returning home to recreate the flavors she tasted and loved throughout Mexico. She loves cooking together with her friends and is known for making 150 tamales at a time!
Helene lives in a beautiful hacienda-style house in a typical Mexican residential neighborhood (not an expat neighborhood), so you will get an authentic experience of the local culture. Her house on a local dirt road is furnished with Mexican antiques and has a beautiful garden and pool. Helene speaks Spanish, English and French and is a great host for people coming from around the world.
Don't miss out on this wonderful opportunity to experience Mexican culture and cuisine with a welcoming local!
