John Benus “The Fun Doctor” & Margaret Yates

.We’ve been exploring the colonial towns near Puerto Vallarta since 2003. Our passion is sharing what we’ve discovered with those who’d like to experience the real culture & local flavors of Mexico.

 During our adventures to  these 200-400 year old colonial towns with cobblestone streets, we’ve met artisans, blacksmiths & craftsmen who’ll treat you like family. Each has a unique story & knowledge of this magical region. This type of experience you can’t find in a book. So pack your bags, put on some sunscreen & enjoy your vacation!
