    The farm is a calm, peaceful place where you will enjoy nature and experience the elements. You will have time to relax, read, learn something new, think, write and so in your spare time. If you want to party you can do it on weekend you are off the farm, at Veracruz and Boca Del Rio cities.

    We have a big room for workawayers only, we provide bed and fan, we lack of furniture, help us improve a better place for you :)
    If you prefer to camp we have beautiful areas you can do it, bring your tent.
    We also have bathrooms, showers and laundry area.
    Please bring your personal needs such as sleeping bag, shampoo, soap, mosquitoes repellent, medicines. Since we are a farm, located in a rural area there’s not much pharmacy or stores near, try to buy things in your arrival day at Veracruz city.
    We are in front of the river, you can enjoy.

    We have common areas and a large kitchen to eat together. I’ll provide food, you can cook for yourself or enjoy the food we cook.

    Moderate alcohol consumption no problem.
    For smokers you are asked to take care of where to throw the cigar, only in the designated areas and container.
    We like to take care of the environment and we try to avoid pollution.
