  • Description


    Hola! I'm Lazaro, the owner of the project. This project is located inside (of) a nature reserve, which is 5 minutes away from the city of Escarcega, next to the high way 186, kilometer 4.8 in the direction Escarcega-Chetumal.
    In this place we rent cabañas, there is a site for camping, and we also have various activities such as feeding animals like deers, flock of sheep, chickens, and others.

    I'm living with my family: my wife and two children. We have two dogs, and a small pet pig who likes attention.

    We wish to learn and practice english. Also we wanna know other cultures from all over the world.

    Even though we don't speak English very well, we would be glad to also welcome volunteers who don't speak Spanish. This would be a great opportunity to benefit from each other.

    What else ...

    We are an intermediate point between Palenque and the Riviera Maya. This place is ideal for the rest in contact with the nature and also pretty inexpensive (low cost).
