Volunteer Vacations in Puerto Vallarta

Ever wonder what the old Puerto Vallarta of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton was like? Destination:PEACE is teaming-up with Puerto Vallarta’s Villa Leonarda, former gathering place of Old-Hollywood, for its Volunteer Vacations. Travelers can experience the old-Mexico charm of days gone by in an unforgettable vacation experience.

The intimate setting of Villa Leonarda in Puerto Vallarta’s historic center will be the starting point of a Destination:PEACE vacation focused on the betterment of the community. Travelers will enjoy a luxurious vacation, enjoy cultural enrichment, the rejuvenation of yoga and engage with the local community- helping with local beach cleanups or spay and neuter clinics for local animals. At the same time, guests will have ample free time to explore the narrow flowered-lined lanes just outside the door of Villa Leonarda or venture further to explore the rich history and hospitality of the Banderas Bay region.

"We are thrilled to offer this beautiful and historical Villa to our volun-tourists who come to experience the culture and history of Mexico while joining real hands-on projects with local kids, animals and the environment,"says Katherine Fisher, founder of Destination:PEACE.
