Pachamama's House.



As a volunteer with us you have the opportunity to assist in a kindergarten, to assist with teaching English in the local Lija Community Center and to help out with our rescued animals.
We speak English and will guide you during your volunteer experience. Optionally, you will also have the opportunity to practice your Spanish in an encouraging environment at Pachamama's house, at the kindergarten and at the Lija Community Center. Note: You do not need to speak a word of spanish to help as a volunteer.
At the kindergarten, you can assist in the classroom, supporting the teachers and playing with the kids who are between 3 and 6 years old. Volunteers love helping and playing with the wonderful students at the very beginning of their education!
At Pachamama’s house we have 11 cats, 2 dogs and 7 birds, which we have rescued over the years. You can share your love of nature with us by helping us care for our rescued animals and supporting in organized beach clean ups.
The volunteer opportunities we provide can be mixed and matched and are explained in more detail in their respective sections (see links to our experiences below).
Our volunteer house is on the same latitude as Hawaii and enjoys nearly perfect weather year-round. Puerto Vallarta is a traditional Mexican city with beautiful beaches and mountains. It is full of attractions, restaurants and cultural activities.
Pachamama's house is located in a respectful community in the Brisas del Pacifico area of Puerto Vallarta and is shared by you, our family and our rescue animals. There is a separate entrance to your space. There are 3 different rooms for you to choose from. One shared room for up to two volunteers with a fan, one room with a/c, a tv, and a curtain as a door to the kitchen area (which is empty from approx. 10pm-8am), and a larger private room with a/c and a large tv. We all share 2 bathrooms and the living/kitchen area.
There is a good work space, reliable internet connection, and a respectful community surrounding you at your home in Puerto Vallarta.

When you are not volunteering there are many things to do around us! Great local restaurants are in walking distance or a bus or uber ride away. The main strip downtown and the closest beaches are 20-40 minutes away and visited regularly by our volunteers.
during your free time or on the weekends you may enjoy dancing, snorkeling, diving, kite surfing, paragliding, trekking in the mountains, visiting nearby towns or spending days on the unspoiled beaches.
We can make recommendations for tours and other activities based on your interests. We may also act as your guides and come with you to show you the best places! We ask that volunteers cover transportation and meals for those occasions.
If you would like to volunteer with us please let us know, we would love to get to know you and welcome you to the family!

I had a wonderful experience at Pachamama’s 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.
