Program Details

Although Vallarta is a big tourist destination, it's still very much Mexico. The people are friendly, the food is fantastic, and the culture is rich.

It's also a great jumping off point for a lot of wonderful things to see and experience in this part of Mexico. It's an excellent place to immerse yourself & learn about the traditional Mexican lifestyle and culture. You will have plenty of time to explore, make memories, eat tacos, go to the beach, learn Spanish, see free, live entertainment, make friends, and much more. What are you waiting for?


Activities & Shift

As a hostel, socilizing with guests will be a requirement. We will ask that you take people on hikes, to the beautiful beaches in the Bay, and for a fun night out on the town. Yep, you read that right! It is our goal to show our guests the way the locals do PV.

Accommodations include a single bed in a shared dorm with other volunteers, fresh sheets and towel provided weekly. WiFi, padlock for locker, full access to kitchen, breakfast included, and weekly staff meals.
