Here’s a great way to spend morning in P.V…….take a Home Tour run by the International Friendship Club. (IFC).

Stroll to the Sea Monkey Restaurant at the foot of Aquiles Serdan and enjoy a delicious breakfast on the beach or watching the people go by on the Malecon. Board our air-conditioned, luxury bus at 10:30 and tour three or four fabulous homes in Puerto Vallarta that have been opened up for you by their very generous owners. Be back in time for lunch at 1:30.

Here’s a couple of tips though:

  1. Buy your tickets in advance at the IFC office located upstairs at the northeast corner of the bridge where Insurgentes crosses the River Cuale. The office is open 9:00 to 1:30 from Monday to Friday or online at www.ifctoursforvallarta.com , or on the day of the tour at the Sea Monkey.
  2. Make sure your feet, knees and hips are in working order as many of the homes are built on the hills of Conchas Chinas or on the rocky cliffs surrounding the bay and walking up and down stairs and on cobblestones might be required.

All of the profits from the tours are spent by the IFC in supporting its cleft palate program, its dental outreach program and in financial aid to twenty or so charities in this area.

If you want to take a break from the beach/ pool and broaden your knowledge of PV this tour is for you.
