Human Connections

About Human Connections

Headquartered in Bucerías, Mexico, a small beach town on the Pacific coast of Mexico, Human Connections is a non-profit that connects local people with international audiences through educational travel experiences. Our goal is to empower local communities while fostering conversations that shift perspectives and increase understanding. Through a vibrant network of local partners - Mexican artisans, tradespeople, and organizations - HC creates opportunities for authentic, meaningful exchanges. These local partners have a platform to share their culture, have agency over their stories, and generate increased income. Concurrently, travelers gain an increased understanding of Mexican culture while cultivating more empathetic perspectives about Mexico.

Human Connections operates as a social enterprise which generates earned income through our unique, educational day tours and student programs. All profits are then invested back into Human Connections to deepen and expand our impact in the region. As a result, our business model and programs ensure sustainability for our organization and, most importantly, the community.

“It was amazing to be able to work closely with such an involved team and learn so much about the culture of Mexico.”

Global Fellow

August 2019 - December 2019 Bucerías, Nayarit
“Working as a Global Fellow among the Human Connections team has been one of the most unique, exciting and enriching experiences of my life so far. In only five months, I have considerably improved my Spanish and learnt multiple skills in various fields, from marketing to videography through human resources. They gave me major responsibilities such as creating video content, developing an outreach strategy, organising a fundraiser, and much more. As a French person, being immersed in Mexican culture and working with people from North America was at first destabilising because I was not familiar with neither of them. But, I have had the opportunity to meet very talentuous, inspiring, and open-minded people whom have given me a new perspective of the world. I went back to France a few weeks ago, and I realised that, this internship is also, and mostly, a cross-cultural and human experience as it helped me grow not only on a professional level but also on a personal level.”
