SERVICE VACATION

Come to beautiful Barra de Potosí, Guerrero, Mexico and join Amigos de Animales for a Service Vacation.

What is a Service Vacation?  It’s the perfect way to get to know a place, meet some of the people that live there, make new friends, and do something worthwhile and good.  It’s also about having fun and becoming acquainted with a community in a way you would not otherwise be able to do.  A Service Vacation is a time to work hard and to play hard.

Amigos de Animales of Barra de Potosí have designed three different packages to offer for your Service Vacation in our beautiful part of the Mexican Costa Grande.

For each of the packages, you will be scheduled to work at the Corral, or with another volunteer in one of the local communities, from approximately 10:30am until 5:00pm daily.

Airport transportation will be provided to/from the Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa (ZIH) airport.

  • Basic Package – $50 USD / day per person.

Stay in the village of Barra de Potosí in one unit of a former four unit hotel with the couple from Olympia, Washington (US) that now live there.

Your unit includes a air conditioning, screened windows, a private bath with shower, queen-sized bed, bar sink and mini-fridge, and a common screened sitting area.  Access is also available to the main kitchen for cooking but food that requires refrigeration must be kept in your mini-fridge.

Also included is weekly cleaning with clean sheets & towels.

Meals are not included.

  • Standard Package – $75 USD / day per person.

Accommodations for the Standard Package are the same as the Basic Package.

A full buffet breakfast is included at 10:00am daily at the Bed & Breakfast Hacienda La Rusa located three short blocks from your accommodations.

For visits one week or longer, you will also receive one excursion during your stay.  The selection of excursions changes based on the season, weather conditions and number of people in the group.

  • Premium Package – $100 USD / day per person.

Accommodations for the Premium Package are provided by the TripAdvisor #1 accommodation in Barra de Potosí, the Hacienda La Rusa Bed & Breakfast.  In addition to being the finest accommodation in Barra de Potosí, Hacienda La Rusa is also owned and operated by the founder of Amigos de Animales, Stasya Briggs and her husband Mike.

A complimentary welcome cocktail of your choice is provided along with the stellar, daily full breakfast buffet.
