  • Description


    Hi! My name is Julia and I would love to be your host and share my house on the beach. I lived the experience to be workawayer and I loved it, now I am living again in Mexico my country, I'm looking for nice people, who seek an adventure and enjoy the exchange with a different culture and lifestyle. I want to make a good experience to somebody else who want to live the experience as workaway in my country.
    I want you to come and enjoy Chiapas, and you will, I have enjoyed most of my state and can point you in the right direction to get the most out of it!

  • Help


    The house needs range from painting & plastering, cut or remove undergrowth through to structural work. All building skill sets welcome! But it is not necessary to have specific knowledge for this construction site, just two arms and the desire to experiment
    The house is still under construction, so you will find construction materials around the house. Be prepared to do housework in a rural setting!!
    In the another hand, the place is so relax, and it is perfect if you want to have a quiet time in the beach while you help me to make my house home.

  • Accommodation


    Bedroom with shower, the house is still unfurnished, but I will provide the necessary furniture for cooking and sleep.
    It will be in the house that is being worked on.
    The house doesn't have internet but you can catch it from a wifi area in the school located at the island. There's not cellphone signal but we have a satelital phone in the house. The community its nice and rural area where you can develop your spanish with help from the locals who do not speak English. (maybe 1 or 2 spoke english).
    Nobody is living in the house because is for vacations, so you will be alone, I'll go on the weekends with my family (could be my mother and brother or my boyfriend, or friends) and fill the little fridge for you. We always use the hamacas that we hang around the house to sleep or an inflatable mattress in the another room, while you can still using your bedroom.
