Hello! My name is Ivan. I have a project on 1.5 ha of land in the beautiful mountains of Teopisca, located 30 km from San Cristobal de las Casas in the Mexican state of Chiapas. We have one finished cabin where you can stay and also plenty of space for camping. We have a small organic garden that we can share food from when available, 2 cats, 1 small horse, 2 dogs. We also live in a community with other, interesting projects going on!

You can enjoy beautiful nature and calmness away from the city, wake up with birds and sleep under the stars. I can teach you about local plants and bioconstruction, as well. During free time I can also teach you acroyoga, aereal dance ,trapice and slackline. you can walk in the forest or go to visit the local community of Teopisca and magic San Cristobal de las casas which is 1 hour away by pubic transport.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
I would like you to help me with the garden, construction of new cabin and bit of animal care. The help takes about 3 hours a day 5 days a week.

Beautifully designed cabin with beds and a fireplace. We also have a camping area where you can set up your own tent or park a van, if you like. We also have a fully equipped kitchen that you may use when you'd like and we also tend to cook for everyone with either a gas stove or over a fire or in a clay oven. We will also cover the price of gas, water, and there are solar lights and a dry toilet.
There is public transport to and from San Cristobal de Las Casas, which takes 1 hour and costs 35 pesos. You can walk in the mountains, visit local markets, and indigenous communities.
