These hosts were amazing, so accommodating and flexible and I had a great time exploring Puerto Vallarta in my free time. It is a wonderful place to stay and such nice folks. I got to practice my Spanish a ton and I had lots of opportunities to meet locals. 10/10 would recommend.

This experience was incredible, I got to stay in a wonderful place with some of the most altruistic people I have ever met, they care for the kids, animals, and the planet. I enjoyed learning from them and having conversations about how much we have all grown. If you are debating weather or not to do Worldpackers, this is an excellent first experience as it was my first as well! Please feel free to reach out with any questions!

Staying with Su, Vero, and Lucy (+ Perfilio) has been one of the best experiences of my life. 3 of the most genuine whole-hearted people you'll ever meet! They'll do everything they can to make sure you feel at home. The school & La Lija are just as much of an amazing environment- you genuinely do help the staff and kiddos, and the smiles/hugs you receive will make the time pass faster than you could ever want. By the end of the trip, Las Brisas truly felt like home. Can't wait to see you all again :)

Gracias querido lukas, nos haces falta, porfirio te recuerda mucho y los niños aún más. Lucy mucho más Extraño cocinar para ti pollo todos los días jajajaja
Familia por siempre! 💞Nos vemos pronto.



Wow! The best experience I have ever had. I learned so much. Puerto Vallarta is such a beautiful place to go to. I was so scared to come by myself from Australia but now I can't wait to come back. The experience I had would be nothing without Vero & Su. They took me in as their own. Just like family. They helped me whatever I needed, accompanied me to places I needed to go & cooked for me too😭 The volunteering experience at the school was incredible. I have so much more gratitude after this trip. I will see you guys someday soon🤍.
