Destination:PEACE Announces Gourmet Partnership with NAEF Cuisine, a Taste of the Good Life

The newest trend in travel includes volunteer vacations and Destination:PEACE Volunteer Vacations has joined forces with NAEF Cuisine in Punta de Mita, Mexico.

Chicago, IL, March 12, 2010 --( Vegetarian Wraps with a Fresh Tamarind Dipping Sauce anyone? How about Grilled Mahi Mahi with Coconut Milk, Ginger, Chile and Cilantro Wild Rice? Or Lime Marinated Grilled Organic Chicken Strips Salad with Fresh Mint and Mango? If that doesn’t spark your senses how about Guava Tartlet Almond Crumble with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream? Destination:PEACE and NAEF Cuisine have come together to deliver fresh and seasonal local products and exceptional imported food during your Volunteer Vacation.

NAEF is a young and dynamic full service gourmet catering company that creates exceptional feasts ranging from intimate gatherings to large scale events. Reliability, Dedication to Quality and Service form the foundations of the company and make it a perfect match for dedicated volunteers of all Destination:PEACE Vacations. Just imagine after a fulfilling day of volunteering, you can come back, relax and enjoy the finest food along with the finest accommodations.

Destination:PEACE was born out of an idea to couple volunteer opportunities with the amazing landscape that the Bay of Bandera’s offers as a vacation destination. During a Destination:PEACE Volunteer Vacation, guests will experience another culture while making a difference in the lives of others: children, women, families, animals and the environment. Volunteers will help raise awareness and contribute to the overall love, community and hope affiliated with PEACE Mexico, a non-profit organization currently operating in Punta de Mita and a 501 (c)3 in the US. Destination:PEACE gives back a portion of their proceeds to PEACE Mexico in order to further its mission.

Founded in 2005, PEACE Mexico works hand-in-hand with communities in Mexico to provide holistic education combined with community action programs that enable people to improve their quality of life as well as their financial stability. English classes, after-school programs, recycling initiatives, and a free mobile spay/neuter clinic are among the various projects.

But it’s not all work. Each five-day vacation combines volunteerism with the relaxing practice of yoga, taught by credentialed yoga instructors, spoils you with authentic Mexican cuisine, and enables you to explore the region and experience cultural or adventure activities. Cultural activities might include salsa dancing or turning clay into masterpieces. Adventure activities might include hiking, surfing or whale watching. “We believe there is a beautiful balance between the volunteer opportunities and the time to reflect and relax here in Mexico. We want you to enjoy yourself so much that you come back year after year not only to spoil yourself but to make a difference in the lives of others… an experience as addictive as the guava tartlets from NAEF Cuisine,” says Katherine Fisher, Co-Founder of Destination:PEACE.
