Mexico Volunteer Supervision

Volunteers will with a host family. The host families are well screened and very familiar with international travelers. Most of the rooms are individual, but sometimes volunteers will share a room. The location of accommodation is in a safe neighborhood where volunteers will feel confident in their security. Staying with a host family is an excellent way to learn more about the culture of Mexico as well as practice your Spanish.. The host families are based in the towns of Barra de Navidad and Melanque for teaching and special children project, and Manzanillo for the orphanage projects. All these towns are about 15-20 apart from each other.

Our volunteers will also enjoy 3 local meals(breakfast, lunch and dinner) during the project. If you are going to be out and about for lunch, you can request ameal to be prepared to take with you. Breakfast in Mexico mostlyconsists of beans and tortillas with eggs and salsa. For lunch and dinner,chicken is very popular, or beef chopped for tacos with onion, cilantro andsalsa is another option. These can be served with rice and salad also. Chorizo,which is like a sausage, and tamales are also popular with Mexican and equallydelicious.

Throughout the volunteer project,our local staff stays in contact with volunteers either with face-to-facevisits or via email/telephone. With longer placements, we visit our volunteersevery two weeks (when possible).
