Customer Reviews for Old Huatulco And Mexico Traditions
We were really fortunate to have such a great tour guide "Speedy". She gave us local information as well as historical facts. We never felt rushed or pressured (to spite her nickname) at any of our stops along the way. The medicinal herb garden was great. Saw the plant that loofahs come from...grown on a family co-op farm. Served local cuisine and hibiscus water. A trip well worth the taking. We were delighted .
