Our Home Tours showcase four unique homes each week ranging from small, traditional style casas to multi-million dollar beachfront condos and villas. Travel in comfort on our air-conditioned tour bus while enjoying an entertaining narrative by our friendly tour guides.

Net proceeds from these very interesting and fun tours support the International Friendship Club's Cleft Palate Surgery Program and other charitable programs.

Ticket sales begin at 9:00 am at the Sea Monkey Restaurant. The Sea Monkey offers a discount breakfast for those arriving early.
Tour departs at 10:30 sharp. Tour price is 600 Pesos. A discount is available for IFC Members. Tickets can be purchased in advance online at International Friendship Tours Vallarta. Tickets are available the day of tours in cash, pesos only, but seating is limited. Order online or purchase tickets pre-tour at the IFC office located at the corner of Calle Libertad and Miramar in Colonia El Centro, Puerto Vallarta Monday-Friday from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm (pesos only).
