    Description

    We are a commencing Family owned organic farm on the coast of Oaxaca
    As we are starting out our farm, we are focused on setting up a retreat center in the format of glamping and camping for conscious travelers.
    Our proyect aims to incorporate different agroecological systems such as bio intensive farming beds and agroforestry, as well as art and design everywhere we can.
    The farm is comprised of 28 hectares of which 21 are still primary forest and are destined towards conservation.
    We are located next to Huatulco National Park, 2 km away from the nearest beach and 12 km away from huatulco international airport. There are 4 beautiful beaches to visit in the nearby area.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The farm is a great place for cultural exchange as we welcome diversity in our visitors while interacting with the local community.
    We are a family owned farm. We are artists who aim to create beautiful and functional spaces with a strong focus on art and design on everything we do. We look forward to sharing our vision and to welcoming others to share and explore their artistic expresión.
    We are also involved with the local community who often share with us their ancestral knowledge of the bio region and it’s characteristics, we strive to share as much as we can as well.
    Here there is the possibility to learn and share knowledge in several capacities such as:
    - permaculture
    - agroecology
    - eco technology
    - local biodiversity (and nature in general)
    - basic construction techniques
    - art and design
    - languages (we speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, and a bit of French)
    Workawayers will be doing projects hand in hand with us and our team.
    We look forward to exchange knowledge and share experiences with our visitors.
