While visiting PV my husband and I decided to take one of the advertised home tours. There are two non profit groups that do them but they are on different days. We chose Peace because it worked with our schedule. It turned out to be a great way to spend the day and see some interesting places that you wouldn't have seen otherwise. You show up at their location by about 9:30 to be sure to get a ticket as they fill up. They leave around 10:30 I think. A large, very nice bus takes you to four different homes. The staff are volunteers, Americans who live in Puerta Vallarta. Peace tours benefit the needy and they said one ticket would buy 45 meals! They also support the Arts and Culture for the schools. The four homes on the tour are rotated so you could go more than once and probably not see the same ones. One of the three was truly spectacular, high on a hill. Two others were smaller and not as fabulous in decor but were lovely Spanish architecture. The last was actually currently a Bed and Breakfast Inn. It was very ornate and over the top, almost a little garish or quirky in decor. My only comment would be that Bed and Breakfast inns probably aren't the best to show because bedrooms had open suitcases in them and if I were a guest it would be irritating to have people walking through my room. In each case you are free to roam the house everywhere unless a door is closed. Three of the houses had great views and pools etc. The B and B was along the river and no real view. It had many levels and stairs. If walking were a problem for someone this probably isn't a good activity as they all had stairs or steep driveways so best for physically active people. After the tour of homes the bus stopped at a very authentic attractive restaurant. They demonstrated making tortillas and allowed each of us to give it a try which was fun. Of course most of us stayed and had a little lunch and marguerita or beer. If you didn't want to do that you were only a couple of blocks from where the tour started so could leave the tour group there. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and highly recommend it. It is money well spent as it supports very good causes and gives you a unique look at Puerta Vallarta.
