    Description

    We are teaching kids English in close knit community that can’t afford bilingual schools. Come teach a few hours a day and enjoy day and night life, or bring a nice camera to help document our school or our town.


    We are in the process of procuring land to build a hostel/retreat to also help generate money for programs and jobs. As well as give our cloud forest hiking and camping tour group a new image on social media or help in prove upon google search rankings.

    Our town is very friendly and safe, (however very rural) so you can experience the part of Honduras you really came for. We are also on the bus rout to Copan.

    Nearby we have hot springs, a national park with cabins, natural pools, waterfalls, caves, a zoo and coffee plantations. We can take you to some of these places. See pics! Or you can stay around the closer to the house and see this culture perfectly.

    If you need to go to San Pedro Sula to catch a flight or renew a visa sometime soon and don’t want to stay in San Pedro for the night, this is the perfect Workaway. We are 30 minutes away from San Pedro and can get you cheap private transportation with an English and Spanish speaking driver.

    Hopefully soon we can build bunks to include a twin bed above each of the double beds or replace with twin bunks.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Feel free to stay as long as you want and learn Spanish, Honduran cooking, and a little more about life here in a culturally rich community. If you are interested in helping better a community, then we are more than welcome to help you out.

    Our town is one of the safest rural spots in all of Honduras to see other side of life here. (And all the hidden gems) So you can definitely see how most people in this country live like day to day. (And cool places with out tourists to deal with.)

    Other cool things about our town:

    Spanish Conquistador was caught and hung in the town center.

    Unexplored Caves

    From September to February, 50% of your view is cloud forests much of the time.

    Town is built on top of a previous one.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We have an extra bedroom in a new house, two spare double beds and a private bathroom.
    We have a kitchen with stove and fridge you can use.

    Short terms are perfect if you needed to be in San Pedro Sula for things like extending your visa or to get a bus to La Ceiba. We are 45 min away from the terminal in San Pedro, so if you would have to stay a night in San Pedro or Ceiba, here would be a much better choice.

    Or, you can stay a while and get to know the real side of Honduras in a extremely safe town. Your biggest problem will be most likely you have to run to the store late and some kids might want to speak English with you and the older ones might try and get you to drink and shoot the shit with you, but all are friendly. It’s a very conservative religious town.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Transportation. Campsites get cold! We live in the mountains in Honduras. We have so much outdoor exploration and national treasure nearby waiting for you. I came through here 5 years ago backpacking and never left. However if you require others for constant entertainment, this might not be the place for you.
