Tourist Volunteer Opportunities



Each year more and more tourists are interested in spending one day (or more) during their Mexico vacation volunteering for a local charity. This page provides current information about charities in and around Banderas Bay that we’ve personally spoken with about their volunteer needs and who are extremely excited about having tourists drop by to lend them a helping hand for a few hours, for a day, or for whatever amount of time you have to share with them during your upcoming holiday.
