About Our Project Partner
Entreamigos strives to achieve its mission to increase learning opportunities for children and families through the implementation of educational programs based on principles of integration and collective community action. The vision of Entreamigos is to provide the children and families of San Pancho with the skills needed to contribute to their changing communities in a positive way.
Mexico is a diverse country of natural beauty that includes the surfable beaches of the Pacific, the clear waters of the Caribbean Sea, mountain cloud forests, dormant volcanoes and more! Mexico’s pre-Hispanic civilizations built some of the world's great archaeological monuments including pyramids and Mayan temples. The Spanish colonial era produced towns of shaded plazas, sculpted buildings and churches, and then led to the rise of great art!
Our project takes us to the town of San Pancho, a picturesque, rural beach town just an hour’s drive north of Puerto Vallarta, surrounded by jungle, along a palm-lined beach. Located along the Pacific Coast, it is an ideal location for those who want to surf, or just enjoy the beach and colorful artistic surroundings.
