Well, the Mexican government has been working hard to develop tourism at Huatulco. One of the ventures is to encourage people in local villages to set up stalls/demonstrations/exhibitions of thei wares/skills.
We went, by minibus, to a fruit stall demonstration ---excellent
to a we-use-this-cactus-for-so-many-things talk ---interesting for some
to a craft market ---lots of woven baskets, mats etc
to a trafitional herb garden ---not good for us English, with our gardens
to a tapas-making demonstration ---interesting. Look in the church too!

The prices were Mexican prices ---and so a good deal for us.
the guide and driver were excellent.
Would I go again....possibly.
This write-up will cover 5 entries ---one for each stop so that I can show the photos.
