  • Description

    Description

    Encompassed on the slopes of the Sierra Madre Sur, surrounded by waterfalls and tropical forests lies our "finca", one of the oldest and most beautiful organic coffee plantations in Oaxaca. We are a family with two children (5 and 7 years) and both of us have been coffee farmers for five generations.
    Part of our coffee plantation is a glamping eco-resort where we welcome visitors from all over the world, giving coffee tours and tastings.
    If you are looking for a quiet place in nature and want to learn more about coffee farming, this is the perfect place for you. We're looking for volunteers who are proactive, open-minded, reliable and hard-working with different skill sets.

We are looking for a person that stays with us at least 3 months, because is very important to have continuity in their lessons. and live the program for the next teacher. We would like them to have 1 hour of class each one of them a day. And then may be 1 extra hour to help us with their homework from school.

    What else ...

    We're located 45 min away from the airport in Bahias de Huatulco and one hour of the beaches of Huatulco and is reachable by shared taxis ("colectivos"), by van or by regular taxis. The farm is about 10 min away from the small village of Pluma Hidalgo where you can find some coffee shops and small stores. There's also a beautiful waterfall that you can reach by foot.
    Please note that Pluma Hidalgo is located in the mountains and it is significantly colder here (around 20°C during the day, 10-15°C at night) than at the coast. Please bring appropriate clothing.
