College Student Volunteer Opportunities in or near Acapulco

by Southerner

I have the opportunity to bring six college undergraduates to Acapulco (lodging has been provided for free)in May 2010. Does anyone know of a place they can volunteer their services? They are interested in community planning, working with children and poverty issues. (Half of them are fluent in Spanish.)
Thanks!

Hi!

I really enjoyed reading your question, it's giving me some ideas where you can look at:

1. NGO = ONG - Organizaciones No Gubernamentales as Pronatura or Amnistia Internacional.
http://www.pronatura.org.mx/USA/getting_involved.php
http://amnistia.org.mx/grupos/
http://www.greenpeace.org/mexico/

Just remember, visitors should not get involved in political issues, but it's harmless to approach ONG's for information and exchange information, sometimes they are a good connection with other groups.

2. Schools/Universities - usually the most interested in having success in local impact programs is schools.

3. Expat's communities, they usually get together and create their own groups to help or bring resources for diverse matters: http://www.liveabroad.com/links_volunteer.html

4. Yes, goverment. There's a department focused only in the youth, I found many cool activities through them in the state of Yucatan (like releasing turtles and such), but I really don't know how it would work for the state of Guerrero, in particular Acapulco. You can try it!

I know those are only the general ideas. I will be looking in more detail. I will come back to post something. =)

Good luck on your search,

Travel Tips for Acapulco

International Convention Center

by ephobius

The Centro Internacional de Convenciones is a huge auditorium where lots of events are held each year. From concerts to contests, from conventions to expos, anything can be done here.

In 2000 I came to work here for a week as translator. It was a nice experience and I even met the President of Mexico.

Picture is from 1993.

Almost everyone there speaks English, there are quite a few who don't want you to know they understand what you are talking about, but most of the people you will deal with can understand you perfectly.

Lots of bars and discos

by ephobius

Lots of bars, discos and restaurants. Many places where to choose from. If you need a name, go to El Alebrije discotheque. Cover about 10 dollars (2000), free some weekdays. Casual. No shorts (as almost in every nightclub).

Fuerte De San Diego

by Enzyme_X

This old fort, built in times when Acapulco was important trade port, nowdays hosts very interesting museum, Museo Historico De Acapulco.
Exhibition is not very big but superbly presented. With little help of multimedia you can easily spend few hours walkin from room to room, evreyone dedicated to certain period of Acapulcos history. Boards with lots of useful informations guide you through the exhibition.

Besides the exhibition, the fort itself is worth a visit. From the top, there is a gret view over the Acapulco bay.

To make the visit perfect: I was there on sunday and the entrance was fee-free.

lie down by the beach and relax, i recomend he Princess Beach.
Visit El Revolcadero
Bungee Jump
Dolphins diving.
Well I think that lying by the beach is so great, you can get a great sun tan, enjoy the sun with a lot of young people, have a good beer by your side,watch the ocean.
In the revolcadero you can see the biggest wave ever!
