  • Description


    We are doing some different projects at our place called Rancho Ecologico Cuatro Elementos, in Puerto Escondido Oaxaca.

    we are located 7 minutes by car from La punta de zicatela, and from the beach.

    we are inviting people to stay at our place and enjoy a beautiful view of the Colotepec river. we have some camping areas with hammocks and there are bathrooms and showers and a spot to go swim in the river at this beautiful hidden paradise.

    you can stay with us as much as you feel like, we only need help from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and the rest of the time, you can chill a the river, go to the beach or whatever you feel like.

    We have 3 glamping very simple cabins that you can stay in exchange for your help.

    We are starting a hydroponic system, and a small fish grow.

    One of our volunteers, just helped us install around 50 bee hives to help them reproduce and we are so very grateful with her. the project is growing slowly slowly but it is still considered very easy work to do and simple chores like watering the plants and feeding the chickens.

    IMPORTANT THING TO KNOW: We have some solar panels to charge devices but is restricted at certain hours if there is too many people.

    The nicest thing of our place is that you are in a very private spot in nature and at the shores of the river.

    Because we are inland, The closest stores are within 15-20 minutes walking distance or you can take public transport and reach the store in 5 minutes and in 15 minutes you are in downtown Puerto Escondido.
