Community Services

Many of us have discovered a strong sense of community here on Banderas Bay, some for the very first time. If you're from a metropolis where technology reigns supreme and the words "next-door neighbor" and "stranger" are synonymous, you'll find this a refreshing environment where people matter.

Working side by side with our new neighbors to achieve common goals is an ideal way to learn about the culture and make friends while giving back to the community which embraces us.

On these pages you’ll learn about the various local charities and how you can get involved. With a multitude of opportunities here to flex philanthropic muscles, you can find out for yourself that it truly does feel as good to give as it does to receive!
