IFC Begins 30th Season of Puerto Vallarta Home Tours

December 11, 2014

With your support, the International Friendship Club (IFC) will continue its mission to give a helping hand to the less fortunate in Puerto Vallarta and surrounding areas. Learn more at

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The International Friendship Club (IFC) provides one of the most popular tourist activities in all of Puerto Vallarta, their always special Home Tours. This season's tours, which began December 2nd, run every Tuesday and Wednesday morning through March. There will not be tours the week of Christmas or New Year's.

Home Tours will depart promptly at 10:30 am from the Sea Monkey restaurant on the beach (at Aquiles Serdan) across from the Molina de Agua condominiums.

This season will mark thirty years since the IFC Home Tours were started as a way to raise funds to support the fledgling Cleft Palate Clinic. The proceeds from the tours go to support the IFC Cleft Palate Program that serves almost 200 children from birth when the lip and palate are closed until all the necessary surgeries, speech therapy, dental and orthodontia work is complete. This comprehensive program has been serving the Puerto Vallarta area for 30 years and is made possible by the funds raised by the Home Tours. The IFC also supports a number of other charitable projects in Puerto Vallarta.

Your tour will include four homes and will last about 3 hours. The homes you will visit vary from small, traditional Mexican casas to multi-million dollar oceanfront condominiums and villas. Homes change weekly so folks that are on an extended vacation can come more than once and see different homes. Tours are run by experienced, knowledgeable and entertaining tour guides who all donate their time.

Ticket prices are $500 pesos and can be purchased in advance using cash at the IFC clubhouse or at Sea Monkey the morning of the tours beginning at 9 am. You may also purchase tickets in advance on our website with a charge card or Paypal at

Tours often sell out so we recommend that you get your ticket in advance or arrive at 9:00 am the day of the tour to purchase your ticket. Breakfast for purchase is available at the Sea Monkey if you choose while you wait for your tour to depart. More details about the Home Tours can be found on the Home Tours website at
