    Hello! In Human Connections we are really looking forward to having you along as our guest. This is a little reminder that your tour will begin from the Human Connections office at 9:30am, and we recommend that you arrive between **9:15 - 9:25 am.** Find us at the corner of Heroes de Nacozari Avenue # 2 and Calle Esteban Calderón, two blocks from Telmex in Bucerías. (If you would like more guidance feel free to contact our staff directly using our contact information) For this Bucerias Cultural Tour you will explore the tucked-away neighborhoods to engage with 2 families of local artisans in their homes and workshops. Through translated conversations, develop deeper insights into the livelihoods of these artisans, and experience the vibrant cultural richness within Bucerías. Try your hand at some local trades – such as painting or weaving – and learn about the gastronomic diversity of Mexico through an interactive workshop and a family-made Mexican meal. For this 4.5 hour experience we recommend you bring a hat, comfortable shoes, and a bottle of water. We aim to minimize plastic waste so we do not provide bottles to our visitors. We already have your booking in our records, so you do not need to print your ticket for the day of the tour. Thanks again,
