Loveland, CO (PressExposure) February 19, 2009 -- Lifetree Adventures today announced a new addition to their portfolio of trips, a Christian family adventure to Mazatlan. Part vacation and part Christian service, this new adventure will allow travelers to experience the thrills of Mazatlan as well as helping local villagers.
Mazatlan on the Pacific Ocean is a quick hop from most U.S. cities, offering fun in the sun! Volunteers will discover Mazatlanâs two sides, one offering the glitter of fancy resorts and one where their service will make a great impact.
In Mazatlan thereâs something for everyone to enjoy: gorgeous sandy beaches, snorkeling, whale and dolphin watching, fabulous sunsets, fishing, sailing, surfing, parasailing, kayaking, hiking, and the list goes on. Spend a day at El Atrancon Ranch, exploring the countryside on horseback or ATV, milking a cow, kicking around a soccer ball, or taking a refreshing nap in a breezy hammock.
On days 3-5 volunteers will roll up their sleeves and build a house for an impoverished family in the Mazatlan suburbs. No experience is needed, just a will to help out and a dedication to see a project through from start to finish. This Mazatlan Christian Family trip allows kids as young as 7 to join in and be a part of the service.
