Bucerías, Nayarit – Local non-profit PEACE has found a way to offer a unique experience for tourists while providing vital funding for their programming in a new social business, Real World Home Tours. The experience captures the essence of the diverse lifestyles around the bay while allowing appreciative visitors to give back to local communities.
"A lot of people who visit the Puerto Vallarta area would love to interact with locals on a personal level, but don’t know how to do it," said Molly Fisher, Director of PEACE Mexico. "Our programs allow them to step out of their comfort zone and really learn what life here is like, while supporting local communities."
The Real World Home Tour visits four exclusive homes, from spectacular luxury estates to modest pueblos, where visitors experience both the differences and similarities in the lifestyles of the locals and the expats who make up the bay’s rich community.

"I found Real World Home Tours to provide an authentic snapshot of this Mexican region that is not readily accessible by any other means," said Andie, a home tour participant. "It’s hard to find a vacation experience like this. Real World Home Tours helped us to respectfully 'unravel' the cultural differences in this beautiful country, and encouraged a relationship among tourists and the local people of this region. After all, the more we learn about the differences in people around the world, the more we discover how much we really are the same."
