My husband and I took the tour of homes in the eighties and each year there after for years until we eventually moved to Vallarta and I became a docent for the tour of homes. The tour highlights four different homes in the area each week on Tuesday and Wednesday.The homeowners graciously allow the use of their home. All the money from the tour is given to charities such as cleft palette , orphanages and education.The reason the tour is a must to see is that all the money raised is given to charities and everyone is a volunteer except the bus drivers.it is a great way to spend a few hours in the gorgeous homes and also to know that your money will be going to help children in need .

During my week in PV, I decided to take the IFC Home Tour. I went for Wed tour as a solo. My bus had 6 IFC volunteers in red shirts who were very welcoming, friendly, and helped anyone who needed assistance. Ede and Drew were our bus guides. They explained the tour, the IFC and its charities, and spoke about PV and activities. It was very informative and entertaining. They were knowledgeable and fun and set the upbeat tone for the tour.

The 2 tour busses were air conditioned and a comfortable ride. We were allowed to leave our things on the bus while in the houses.
On the way to each home, one of the IFC volunteers gave a summary of the next house. There were 4 villas on this tour and each was unique, beautifully designed and furnished with magnificent views and interesting artwork. We were free to roam and take pictures. A bathroom was available in every house. Everyone on the tour was friendly and I was very comfortable participating as a single. I learned that many people were repeats to this tour because the houses change every week.
I would absolutely take this tour again and highly recommend it as a great deal for a good cause. It is definitely a ‘must do’ while in PV. A+++

We had so much fun taking the International Friendship Club house tour! The hosts/guides were informative and shared stories about the homes that we visited. You travel from home to home in an air-conditioned bus with a truly amazing bus driver!! It was fun to see different neighborhoods than we would have traveled to by ourselves. And the homes were spectacular! I love the reason this organization puts on these tours...to provide cleft palate surgeries for the children of PV who could not normally afford the surgery. They also give to the community in other ways. I highly recommend this activicty.
