The whole trip gives me marvelous views, immersion into Iocal life, fulfilment in volunteering, cultural exchange, and lots of inspirations. the organization house is not just a place for temporary stay, but can create magical chemistry response to build up connections among people with different cultural backgrounds and life experiences. Sweet family forever!!!

I had a wonderful experience at the organization House. Su and Vero are incredibly friendly and accommodating. They picked me up at the airport and we worked with the other volunteers to set a schedule for the week that included both volunteering and touring Puerto Vallarta. They worked closely with me during the time at the kindergarten (which is about 3 hours per weekday if you do each day) and tutoring older children (a little over an hour during the evening, M/W/F). They continually checked in with me to make sure that my experience was meaningful and enjoyable. Very highly recommend.

Muchas gracias querido Daniel, tu estadia en casa fue maravillosa, rodeaste a los pequeños niños de casa con mucho amor, y ellos te extrañan mucho tambien, en especifico la jefa, la pintada, galleta, popeye, chabela y sobre todo porfirio, extraña su tour alrededor de la casa jeje.

Gracias por todo tu amor y dedicación, eres un hombre extraordinario.
family forever!



Su and Vero were incredibly welcoming and attentive, they always made sure I was confortable and enjoying my trip. It was a great balance of spending time with the kids but also getting to know Puerto Vallarta. Can't say enough good things about them and about this experience, muchas gracias por todo!!

As my first World Packer experience I had a wonderful experience and feel like I have made a new family. I choose this project specifically for the experience of teaching children and because I am traveling with my partner. I taught a class on sustainability, horticulture, and Soil microscopy. It was challenging, but rewarding. I had a “epic adventure” when visiting the beach Las Animas. Although, I really enjoyed the small get togethers and learning about others experiences. I have been to PVR many times I hope to return with more knowledge and skills to support future sustainable projects.

This experience was nothing short of incredible. Vero and Sui invited me into their home with open arms, fed me delicious food, gave me a spacious room with a very comfortable bed, and were a home away from home for me. I loved being out of my comfort zone by teaching English at the community center and by helping out and loving the children at the kindergarten. So grateful for you both, two new additions to my forever family!! The work load was not difficult at all and allowed for plenty of time to explore the area. Thank you for your love, and you always will have mine in return!
