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.

You could meet Guatemala deep, beautiful, natural and full of contrasts. You can get to know Kek'chí culture and language as well as Spanish. You will have pure air, beautiful landscapes, and we are also at a strategic point to travel to the natural wonders and Mayan archaeological treasures.
The chores of an eco hostel, in addition to sharing your culture, experiences and language with our staff, plant and fertilize flowers and trees, feed the goats and bottle feed their babies, go to the village that is 5km away to buy supplies, make friends and upload many photos to instagram.
We will accommodate you in a wooden hut in the middle of a cloud forest, there is hot water, drinking water, goat milk, chicken eggs and fruits for your consumption. We have two dogs called Coyote and Ixim, they are very playful.
When the hostel is full you will sleep in a large and comfortable tent in the forest or in the garden, this will be once a month at the most.
Come know us and help us, the landscape and the vibes will fill your soul.
