We are a young and open-minded German-Mexican-Polish family with two boys (3 and 1 years old). We are renovating a beautiful villa in the old town of Guanajuato, Mexico and looking for helpers.

Helping with Tourists
We can help you to learn Spanish, German, English and/or Polish and to get close to local Mexican culture.
By participating in our project you will gain experience in gardening, maintenance, building and babysitting.
We are renovating a beautiful house in the historic down-town of Guanajuato. It's set in a small alley with a big garden and a breathtaking view of the city center.
While most of the work (e.g. adding new rooms, new floors, renovation of kitchen and bathroom) will be carried out by a professional team, there is still a lot of things to do for which we look for helpers:
Taking care of the big garden and patio (cutting back grass and trees, planting new plants, rearranging the footpaths, burning old wood and leaves).
Giving the existing rooms a proper scrub and basic maintenance (e.g. repairing old furniture).
Helping to tidy out some of the rooms.
Babysitting our sons.
Spanish, German, English, Polish, Russian, Portuguese, French, Arabic
You will be sharing the house with us. We will provide you with a private room with double bed, a wardrobe, a desk, and a chair. The bathroom(s), kitchen, living room, patio and the garden are shared. Free Wifi is available.
We will provide you with a healthy breakfast e.g. fresh local fruits, cereals, eggs, bread, delicious coffee and tea. We can also adapt to your special wishes.
Our house is very close to the local market and a main hub for urban buses which will take you anywhere around town.
We are easy to get along with and curious about new people and places. We have always enjoyed co-living with international people all over the word while traveling and working abroad. We value mutual respect, compassion and open communication.
As we have two young kids now, we have some new daily routines like getting them ready in the morning, preparing food or getting them to bed. But apart from the normal occasional crying of little kids this should not affect you too much.
In your time off there are plenty of possibilities:
The city of Guanajuato is an UNESCO cultural world heritage site with sights like the colorful colonial city center, old silver mines and delicous Mexican food.
The city is renowned of its wide range of cultural activities like concerts, theater, artistic and musical workshops, cooking classes and Spanish language courses.
You can also do a variety of sports like rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking, Capoeira, Taekwondo, swimming, dancing, etc.
Guanajuato is also close to the cities of San Miguel Allende, Dolores Hidalgo and mountain towns.
