Friends of Puerto Aventuras - Riviera Maya Subfund


Since the early 1980’s the Mission of Friends of Puerto Aventuras (FOPA) is to further educational opportunities for children and adults in the Puerto Aventuras Poblado.

We provide children classes

We provide before and after School English Language Programs for children in grades 1-9 who attend school in the poblado of Puerto Aventuras, Mexico. By availing themselves of the opportunity to learn English in the tourist region of the Riviera Maya, these students are gaining a skill that will help them greatly in their future quest for meaningful employment

Further education via University Scholarships

To help make dreams come true, we offer scholarships for vocational training and higher education. These scholarships can change the lives of these young adults and their families.

Adult classes

We provide English language education for adults in evening classes. The Riviera Maya’s main industry is tourism. To live, work, and thrive in this tourist haven, one must be bilingual to be competitive in the local job environment. We need your support to help provide these classes and opportunities to our local residents.
