The nicest part was the homestay in a pleasant little village with a lovely family.

Get prepared to organize your trip (for instance rent a car somewhere to get to places you could never see), try and learn some Spanish to interact with people

Inasmuch as tourism helps local communities if you rely on local structures. Otherwise the interaction of this trip in local life was minimum
