Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - "A wonderfully different thing to do." That's what Trip Advisor David H, who hails for Guelph, Ontario, headlined his review of the IFC Puerto Vallarta Home Tours with last week. He went on to say:
"Friends of ours had gone on this tour before and recommended we try it. On top of being for a good cause, it's a great few hours of entertainment. Imagine getting into see some of the most exclusive homes in the area. On our day we were into 3 different places. The first home was 20,000 square feet (the master bedroom was over 4,000 SF alone). The next two were both 10,000 SF. What a treat to see how the other half lives. Check it out. You won't be disappointed." Thanks for your comments, David.
Since 1986, the IFC has funded a Cleft Palate program that provides free medical consultation and treatment to underprivileged children born with a cleft palate or harelip. The IFC launched their first Home Tour that year and the rest is history as the home tours raise thousands of dollars each year to make sure this program endures.
Details of the International Friendship Club's Puerto Vallarta Home Tours and pictures of the homes they visit can be found at ToursForVallarta.com.
The tours run on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings through April 10, 2019, departing at 10:30 am from the Sea Monkey Restaurant on the Malecón at Aquiles Serdan. Tickets sell for $700 pesos and go fast, so it's best to buy them online (website above) or early, on the day of the tour at the Sea Monkey.
The IFC Vallarta home tours require good mobility, as you'll need to walk on some cobbled streets and climb some stairs. Our docents will help you and answer your questions.

You won't be disappointed."The International Friendship Club is a registered charitable organization in Mexico listed as Club Internacional de la Amistad de Puerto Vallarta A.C.
