    Description

    Our project is a small hostel nestled in a farm in the cloud forest of Alta Verapaz, Guatemala to 200kms from the airport. On the farm there is a cabin surrounded by gardens and a forest of pine, pepper, oak and pacaya. We have goats, chickens, fruit trees, a vegetable. We offer camping, rooms and also the cabin. We can see quetzales, toucans, guardabarrancos, hares, armadillos, cotuzas and tepezcuintles. When the hostel is full you can use a tent on a wooden deck, this will be for a couple of days each month. The 5 workers have 20 years with us.
