I'm Dermot from Ireland, I moved to Guanajuato three years ago and fell in love with this magical, romantic city. It's a Unesco Heritage Site, 5
hours from Mexico City and is located within a few hours of many other Unesco colonial cities. Guanajuato is the cultural capital of Mexico and its also a university town so its full of young people, with lots of free music, and its inexpensive compared to other Mexican cities.
I just bought a house here which is located in a safe neighborhood on the panoramica, 5 min walk from El Pipila. The house has fantastic views, 3 patios and a great terrace. What I am looking for is help marketing my business..i want to market my place as a volunteer house where volunteers can work with local nonprofits and also receive spanish classes...i need help researching what websites i should join to have a strong online presence...also i need help painting, cleaning and organizing the house. I plan on turning it into a health/meditation/yoga center. I want us to enjoy sharing beers and working together on this project.

Travellers will benefit from this cultural exchange as i introduce them to mexican friends here where they can practice their spanish and get a deeper understanding and appreciation for the culture.Its a university town where they can participate in language exchange.I also connect them with a language school with volunteer opoertunities with a local orphanage
I need help with marketing this place, clean it up and organize it. Help buying plants/flowers etc to make it beautiful.
Im looking for creative people with ideas. Experience in painting is a plus but not necessary. I recently opened for business renting apartments,so i need people to clean rooms,maybe check people in. Anyone with hotel/hostel/cleaning experience will be welcome
The schedule is very flexible. Free accomadation is provided in exchange for 4 hours help a day. Im open to weekly stays and longer term stays.volunteers will often have an apt to themselves or a private room with private bathroom
