Trip Itinerary

We meet you at Los Angeles Airport on Saturday, and transfer by road to Baja, Mexico. After a rest day at the beach, we head out to the slums to meet the families we will be building for. Each home takes 15 people three days to build, and no prior building experience is necessary!

During the week, we will also visit a local orphanage, throw a party for the kids, and deliver food, toys and clothes to these precious, but very needy children. Once the house building is completed, we celebrate by hosting a street fiesta for the neighbors.

In the evenings, we return to our accommodation (hotel or condos) where there is time to explore the street markets and sample local cuisine. We will take a day to enjoy the beautiful Baja Coastline between Rosarito and Calafia before crossing the border back to the US. You also have the option to extend your stay (own cost and arrangements) a few more days to experience the highlights of the US or Mexico.
