    UPDATE: MUSHROOMING SEPTEMBER/ OCTOBER sterilization, inoculation. Oyster, Reishi, Shiitake, Lions Mane spores and mycelium to innoculate diferent materials.

    Building of little pond and drinking fountain for bees and birds.


    Hello travelers! Perla and Alex here, we have been couple for 7 years and just got an Acre+ in the Cancun Jungle (5000 sm2) 30 minutes away from downtown and 20-25 minutes away from the beach. We go to downtown (almost) every day.

    Me (Perla) have an Organic Soap & Skincare project based on Aromatherapy and Herbology. I love traveling and other cultures. Guatemala, Cuba, lived in France, Japan, roadtripped USA & Canada. My hobbies are perfumery, Alchemy, Pottery, beekeeping, fermenting/preserving, woodworking and of course gardening.

    I like clean environments and we clean our surrounding area from garbage unconscious people throw. We also are fire guardians of the area.

    We are finished a "greenhouse" to produce endemic trees and do reforestation in Cancun City and wherever we see a spot where a tree would be awsome. Etnobotanists and passionate for forestry welcome

    Alex is Medical Dentist and theaches at the University his hobbies are drums & music, wine and beer brewing. Hes a DIY guy. He enjoys philosophical and scientific conversations, politics, religion and art.

    We love traveling the world and we both lived in France, (nous parlons Francais) Spanish and English, we love alternative mindsets, off grid, selfsustainable ideas, spiritual seekers, philosophical questioners, gardening medicinal plants. We were workawayers ourselves the years 2016 and 2017, we got a vintage trailer home and renovated it renovated. we volunteered in organic goat farm, lavender, cannabis, permaculture, so plenty of knowledge and good stories to share. We can say we met incredible people and made friends for life and thats what we aim for to, not only recieve volunteers but to make friends. Home Swap.

    We have a couple of Beehives and do care for the bees compasionately. We harvest honey only once a year 1 or 2 frames and let them bee. UPDATE Bees radicalized. LOL. Completly wild. We dont check nor bother them anymore lol. Their job is only to be wild pollinators. If interested we can tech you about them. But we dont actually open nor extract anything.

    We are mushroom enthusiasts and have studied and grown Oyster and Reishi successfully. We have been inoculating the jungle.
