Discover authentic Mexico with its unique ways on this fascinating Customs and Traditions tour of local villages in the Tangolunda countryside of Huatulco. Here you will see the traditional lifestyle and admire the crafts of local artisans.

I enjoyed this excursion. The guide was very personal and entertaining. We had a good overview of Huatulco. The highlight was the mezcal factory with abundant sampling including some crunchy grasshoppers. La Crucecita Church was also beautiful with its amazing mural! The town is very picturesque!

The painting of the church ceiling and decoration were different and interesting. Textile shop was good experience to see how the color comes from the nature.

Good tour, easy to locate guide off the cruise ship and the van was clean, air conditioning worked great and easy to access. Tour took us to shops with demonstrations of local crafts and tequila tasting but did not feel pressured into buying as I had on previous tours. Company was good about a refund for members of our party that had to cancel due to a medical emergency.

We didn't expect to find a town that reminded us of Palm Springs, CA.....without the traffic. Then to have the added extra of a beautiful coastline with its many bays and coves. Yes it was hot but we plan on returning for an extended stay during the winter months to further explore.
